Team Update

3/17/2020

Dear Align Team Members,

I wanted to reach out to let you know how grateful I am to all of you and what you do! During this time, it is so important that, first and foremost, our team is doing ok. With that in mind, we understand that clients, particularly those in higher risk categories for COVID-19, need your help now more than ever.

Please remember to take precautions:

Wash your hands with soap and water constantly. If necessary, you can use hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol.

Keep your distance from clients…no hugging!

If you see a change in your clients’ health, notify Align Home Health as soon as you can.

And if you are sick, please stay home and let us know.

We do have face masks on order. When they arrive, we will distribute them to all team members.

If you have questions at any point, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Judy Nelson

Assistant Director

Team Update

March 15th, 2020

Team,

In an effort to keep everyone informed, I just wanted to take a couple
minutes this weekend to relay some information.

This afternoon, the Governor stated some Ohio businesses are ordered closed
for in-facility operations like restaurants and bars. This does not include any
services of Align. We are, at present, operating normally.

The services that our caregivers, child care, and adult care personnel do
are critical into seeing that our community makes it through this crisis. Never
has there been a time that what you do on a daily basis been more important or
appreciated.

With school out tomorrow, if families are having issues with child care, the
State has authorized us to open our doors to anyone in need. For school age
children, a class room environment will be set up at our building. Please reach
out if we can be of service.

As more information flows, we will continue to keep you up to speed on the
latest.

Be well and take care of one another.

– Josh

 

To the Team…

March 12th, 2020

Just wanted to reach out to the team to let you know the Align Team is monitoring the situation with the COVID-19. As news breaks, we will do our best to keep you informed.

This afternoon it was announced that Ohio schools will be closed from March 14th to April 5th. Knowing the pressure this may place on working families, Align will open our doors to children in need. We will run a Spring Break Day Program for children at our facility for $5 per day. Please contact Judy for coordination at judy.nelson@alignhomehealth.com or 937-490-9249 (text or call).

Our goal is to get through this together so do not hesitate to reach out for help. If you have any medical questions, please feel free to talk to our nurses, Katie and Abby.

Being afraid or worried is a natural response to situations like this, but please remain calm. Social distancing from events or school closings is a preventative measure, not a response to an outbreak. There remains very few people in Ohio or the US that have contracted the illness, but being a parent also, I share your concern.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and keep you informed as best we can. Stay calm and work together.

– Josh

Election News

Hello Team!

We thought we would put a resource page together for Election News since there have been a few questions!  Also, we’ve doubled the perk thanks to all the good recommendations.

Promotion

For any hourly team member that votes in the November 2018 election and sends Align a selfie with your “I Voted” sticker, you will be gifted a bonus equal to 2 hours of your hourly rate.  Tax Free.  Cold Hard Money.  No Questions Ask.  We must receive the selfie within 48 hours of Election Day.

Election Day

  • Election Day is Tuesday, November 6th, 2018
  • You must be registered to vote.

How to Register

  • Registration Deadline Day is October 9th, 2018.
  • To register or check registration click HERE. (It takes 2 minutes)

Who Are The Candidates?

The biggest question we have been asked is, “Who do I vote for?”  By clicking HERE and entering your address, you can see who is running in your area.

In Closing

Though Align has no official position for who you vote, we just want everyone’s voice from the team to be heard.  Too many good ideas go by the wayside when people refuse to stand up.

Specifically for what we do for a living, the majority of the people we care for are funded by state backed programs.  This years election, we, Ohioans, are choosing a new Governor, which can directly impact the work we do, the funding we received, and indirectly, your pay!  Do not fall under the false belief that this is not an important election!!
