ACHC Launches In-Home Flu Vaccine Services for Patients and Caregivers

New York , NY- With the protection of our patients and caregivers as our highest priority, Always Compassionate Home Care has launched an in-home service where our clinical infusion nurses can provide the flu vaccine in patients’ homes. This in-home clinical service will be enhanced later this fall as we expand our services to include the ability to perform rapid COVID-19 testing and rapid flu A&B testing. When available, we will seek to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in homes as well. Administering the COVID-19 vaccine in the home is contingent upon approval by the FDA and publication of appropriate New York State Department of Health regulations.

While the elderly and medically fragile are cautioned to stay home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Always Compassionates’ mission to keep patients safe in their homes has never been more important. As we move to the months ahead, we are greatly concerned that this flu season has the potential to become exaggerated by the confluence of influenza, COVID-19, and the common cold. Without home care and the recommended precautions, our clients’ risk infection and hospitalization, necessitating visits to physicians’ offices and hospitals with already strained resources and increased risk of contracting other infections.

Always Compassionate is able to provide these critical public health services by combining its unique clinical team and forward-thinking approach to home care in New York. This approach combines the capabilities of an associated pharmacy that has procured the vaccine and partners with Always Compassionate’s clinical care and personal care division, which include clinical infusion nurses and personal care aides.

Always Compassionate is guided by the belief that the future of a more efficient and high-quality home health care system depends largely on:

  1. Achieving scale of operations
  2. Digitizing information to enable the full spectrum of the care system to operate seamlessly and to efficiently provide necessary patient information to all various participants and care managers
  3. Integrating various skills and regulatory capabilities like private duty nursing including therapists, personal care aides, and a pharmacy to develop alternative treatment/care models allowing a larger portion of the elderly and medically fragile to be cared for in their homes
  4. Assembly of a highly professional team of clinical and administrative staff enabling our organization to successfully operate our company

Always Compassionate Home Care is expanding its footprint in New York through ongoing consolidation efforts that will allow the company to offer a growing amount of cutting-edge and high-quality community-based homecare services to New Yorkers. The company’s technological aptitude will enhance each patient’s quality of life through actionable analytics and an efficient platform for the delivery of care. This platform is operating on a state of the artfully digitized information system, made capable by a multi-million dollar investment.

Always Compassionate Home Care, Inc. is a home health care company headquartered in Melville, New York. The company provides personal care, private duty nursing clinical care, and related home care services throughout New York state as a licensed home care services agency by the New York State Department of Health.
