Home and Community Care

The health and safety of our clients and staff is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation to ensure our clients are able to access the care, services and support they need.

All Juniper Home and Community Care services will continue as per normal.

All clients can expect a pre-visit call to check their health and any recent travel.  We also ask clients to let us know if they are feeling unwell so we can discuss alternative options.

All Juniper home and community care staff and contractors are in the process of having at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination by 1 December 2021 and will be fully vaccinated by 1 January 2021 in line with the  Health Worker (Restrictions on Access) Directions (No.3).

In addition, our staff will continue to practice good hand hygiene, reduce unnecessary contact, and adopt other precautions as required.
