Dear North Oakland Caregivers Clients and Families,
We have been following the recent events of the corona virus very closely. We have been keeping informed of best practices for our caregivers and clients regarding this virus and sharing them with all our caregivers. Besides the guidance we are getting through our Michigan Home Health Association, we are also monitoring all national, state and local guidance and updates. On top of that, we are consulting our Medical Director if there are any other precautions we need to take.
The wellness of our clients and team is our top priority. We are being very diligent to keep everyone safe and healthy. We have not had ANY clients or caregivers exhibit ANY symptoms. We feel good that our care is done in a home with few interactions with other people. This does not in any way lessen the serious nature of the virus and how we will address these concerns each day.
If a caregiver thinks they are exhibiting any of the symptoms, they will stay home. Jason or Cheryl will contact you to discuss other options. All efforts will be made to provide a substitute if that is what the client or family wants. Keep in mind that there is the chance that no replacement will be available. Even though this is outlined in our contract, we all need to be more mindful of this possibility in lieu of what is going on and how everyone faces the same challenges simultaneously.
All of our caregivers will continue to be informed of all that we learn as we move forward. This is a fluid situation that can change daily or weekly. We will continue to provide the best and most safe care for all our clients.
We will put our heart and soul into helping our clients just as we have done for 28 years. We hope conditions improve across our country and state as quickly as possible so we can all resume our normal daily routines.
Thank you for being our loyal clients.
We at North Oakland Caregivers would like to recognize our clients this month as we honor National Senior Health and Fitness Day.
Health and well-being of our seniors is the focus of our efforts every day – after all, senior care is our specialty. However, genuinely caring for our clients goes above and beyond our professional duty. We talk to them on the phone, sometimes we cheer them up with flowers if we hear from a caregiver that they are going through a rough spot. We even visit them with a lunch of their choice if we know this will put them in a good mood!
And we believe our clients feel the genuine interest and concern we have for them and pay us back with great trust, friendly chats and amazing recommendations. But this is a topic for another time! For now we leave you with this picture from the latest visit to one of our clients in Clarkston, MI; it left both us and the client smiling.

May is the special time of year when we celebrate the most important person in our lives, the person who gave us life, love and the entire world. What she has done for us is hard to top. So, how to best say we love her? What would be the perfect way to express our gratitude? How to show care to the best caregiver of the world?
We ask these questions every year, and there are some traditional ways that we choose – recent trends* show that:
- Almost all of us buy a greeting card – 78%
- Fewer, but still the majority, buy flowers – 67%
- Half of us organize a special outing – 55%
- Many prefer to give her a freedom to choose a gift with a gift card – 43%
- Third of us selects clothing items or jewelry – 35% each
They are all precious and special gifts. After all, we want the best for our Mom! However, what she will remember most would probably be something that is not material at all – how we made her feel. This may not be new but it is always magical.
So, go ahead and – along with the card and the flowers – give your Mom a reason to laugh, spend time reminiscing together, relive the moments of your family’s life, make more memories!
“I will have my Mom over and grill up a storm,” says North Oakland Caregivers’ President, Lance Baylis. “I want her to have a great day surrounded by the family.”
