Caring for elderly at home while working as first responder Every day, there are men and women leaving their homes to provide essential services during the coronavirus pandemic, putting themselves at risk to do their jobs.  For those who also live with someone who is among the more susceptible elderly or has Alzheimer’s disease, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is offering tips on steps these workers should take when they return home to help protect their loved one. There are a multitude of essential workers, from healthcare professionals to first responders to grocery clerks, who don’t have the option of working from home and are selflessly serving our communities. A frontline worker may also have an essential job of caring for a loved one at home who is vulnerable to the virus. It is important to take precautions when they get home from work to protect those loved ones. more
Parents working in essential jobs can access free child care NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) is announcing new child care assistance to support families that are serving the state in essential workforce positions. Through payment assistance and a network of temporary care locations, parents who work as essential employees can access child care at no cost during the COVID-19 pandemic state of emergency until June 15, 2020. The COVID-19 Essential Employee Child Care Payment Assistance program is designed to help support essential workers so they can stay on the job during the COVID-19 emergency. Applications for payment assistance will be accepted online throughout the state of emergency here. After an essential employee is approved for the program, TDHS will make arrangements to pay for child care at the TDHS licensed program where the child is currently served. For those parents whose children are not already receiving care at a licensed program, you can find a list of licensed child care agencies that are open and able to accept children of essential workers online on the TDHS website here. Once the child is enrolled at a TDHS licensed program and the essential employee is approved for payment assistance, TDHS will make arrangements to pay for that child care as well. TDHS is also partnering with the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs in Tennessee to establish free child care for school-aged children of essential workers. Through this partnership, the YMCA and Boys and Girls Clubs will establish a network of temporary/emergency child care locations across the state. Essential employees with school aged children who need care will be able to register at these locations and access care at no charge during the COVID-19 state of emergency. Parents seeking care at these temporary locations, do not need to apply with TDHS first. As they are established, a listing of YMCA and Boys & Girls Club temporary/emergency care locations will be available for the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs To be eligible for either program, parents must be employees of a healthcare entity, law enforcement, first responders (EMS, Fire Departments, etc.), corrections officers, military, activated national guard, human and social services workers, postal workers, transportation employees, restaurant workers or grocery workers. TDHS hopes to lessen the financial burden for these essential employees, whether they are using licensed child care or accessing a temporary child care location. more
