The team at Poliakoff and Associates wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful for all of you. Please be safe.
We would also like to thank caregivers. For the last two years, nursing home caregivers ignored their personal fears and gone to work to care for residents. Short-staffing is so severe that caregivers have grave concerns about the quality of care their frail and elderly residents receive.
Many of these dedicated caregivers lacked basic infection training and personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks, gloves and gowns. Many got sick. Fatigue, stress and burnout are commonplace. Some died. Thank you for your service.
Let’s hope employers show their appreciation and increase staffing, wages, and benefits for caregivers.
