With the New Year just a few weeks away, Ella Home Care looks toward this fresh start with high hopes that there will be many positive things ahead. 2020 was not the year we expected but we all learned some valuable lessons and managed to make some memories that will last a lifetime. In looking to the New Year, there are several things Ella Home Care foresees as positive changes and trends in the right direction. Let’s take a look at what those are.
- Better Adapting to Life with COVID-19
The number one thing most people are looking forward to in 2021, Ella Home Care staff included, is a world free of COVID-19, or at least a better-managed level of COVID-19. In 2021 we hope to see additional research that yields potential vaccinations, as well as a decrease in cases and death related to COVID-19. Once this begins to trend in the right direction, it’s possible we can slowly transition back to more normalcy in our everyday tasks.
Some guidelines may need to stay in place for a while, but even being able to gather together more frequently and in larger groups will be a most welcome change. And of course, we want to see safer work environments, friends and family reuniting, vacations being taken, sports returning and all the many things we have missed this year.
- Growing the Importance of Home Care
If there anything this past year has taught us, it’s that home care keeps our seniors safe at home while providing independence all humans crave. When it was discovered how COVID-19 was particularly dangerous to our aging population, how we cared for our seniors became a paramount concern. For those able to safely age in their home and maintain social distance from larger groups, this became a safe haven and in many instances the difference between staying healthy or risking exposure. We look forward to seeing professional home care more recognized as an invaluable service to our community.
- An Improving Job Market
We also look forward to job market improvements including people getting back into the workforce. So many people have lost their jobs or have been put out of business because of the COVID-19. And many still remain out of work. As we move forward – and hopefully out of a pandemic – the economy will heal and there will be plenty of new opportunities, particularly for those who have the heart for home care.
- Refining the Mission and Values of Ella Home Care
Looking forward, Ella Home Care plans to continue to improve upon making our business the “go-to” place to work in our senior care community by providing a supportive culture and safe environment for our employees. We have goals in place for 2021 to invest in our staff, grow our team, and to reinforce the core values upon which we are founded.
- Continuing to Help Others
And most importantly, we look forward to another year of making an impact in our community by helping others. This means both caring for our aging population and allowing them to age gracefully and comfortably in home, but it also means providing new jobs and opportunities within the Central Pennsylvania community.
