My mom receives 24/7 care from private-pay caregivers who have been with her for 3-5 years.
She lives in a retirement community which has an associated long-term care facility and provides home care services to residents who need it. (We tried them and didn't like them.)
My mom has also been receiving hospice care since August as her dementia is progressing, and she had some stroke/TIA episodes.
Since I am responsible for my mom's caregivers as their employer, I have been trying to figure out how to arrange for them to get the Covid-19 vaccination. In my state, Texas, they should be towards the end of the first group, possibly in early or mid January.
The retirement community has been working with the state department of health, and has a plan for vaccinating residents and employees. They advised me to contact my caregiver's doctors.
The hospice nurse said that they haven't heard much yet and if I find anything out, please tell her. (That was a couple of weeks ago, maybe she knows more now.)
The state health department receptionist that I talked to on the phone was sympathetic, and will call me when she knows more... That was 2 weeks ago. I called again today, and got the same answer. I expect they are pretty busy, and someone who employs two caregivers is pretty low in their priorities right now.
Has anyone else had any better luck?
