Age at Home caregivers are required to be up-to-date with COVID vaccination, including booster if eligible. Once in the home, we are washing hands frequently and taking standard precautions to prevent illness, like wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout the visit.
Please know that we are taking appropriate steps to prevent COVID from spreading—while also pursuing our mission of compassionate care. We will review and adapt our actions as needed, in line with the advice of national and local leaders. If you have any concerns or have questions for us, please call (608) 327-7456.

Share this blog post:
Keep an eye on the weather forecast in your area.
Regularly check your gas, oil and engine fluid.
Check your tires to make sure they are right for driving in cold and snow.
Completely clear your windows and roof of snow and ice.
Drive slowly; allow extra travel time when it’s snowing or icy.
Keep a blanket, ice scraper, snack, first aid kit, kitty litter or sand, cell phone charger and flashlight in your car.
Tackle a skid the smart way:
Don’t slam on the brakes.
Take your foot off the gas.
Steer your car in the direction you want to go.
Wait for the car to slow down so you can regain control.
