Flu Season is Tough on All of Us — Here’s What to Know

Flu season is officially in full swing, and there’s no doubt that many of us will feel under the weather on occasion this winter. Our team isn’t immune to the flu either, and we have employees needing to rest, recover, and ensure they don’t infect others just like those we care for. Many residents are in need of dependable service, and there are concerns that as the season continues, these services may suffer further. However, our team is working hard to make a difference.


There’s a Lot of Illness Going Around

From our field staff to the office team and their families, nobody is immune to the flu. When it hits, it hits hard. Simply put, quite a few members of the Qualicare team have fallen ill as a result. In our field, it’s virtually impossible to isolate ourselves while working. Therefore, it’s only natural that some employees end up catching the flu despite our very best efforts.

We apologize if there has been any inconvenience and want to ensure you that our team is doing everything possible to navigate the busiest season of the year while some team members rest and recover.


More High-Priority Patients

Qualicare is working hard to meet the needs of more patients than ever, but local healthcare providers continue to struggle a little once flu season hits despite our proactive strategies. Many hospitals and local clinics need extra Personal Support Workers (PSWs) and Registered Nurses (RNs) as a result. Specifically, we are serving more elderly and special-needs patients than ever, meaning that there are more high-priority individuals who rely on us for everything from meals to medicines and more. We anticipate that there will be more of these types of patients in the months and years to come, which means it is more important than ever to welcome more home care experts to our team.


We’re Actively Hiring Additional Skilled Employees

At Qualicare Waterloo, we don’t want anyone to be left waiting. As a solution, we’ve been actively working to employ more team members to help deliver treatment to more people in need. Our goal is to ensure that employee absences due to illness do not impact our level of service. By bringing on more hardworking individuals, we can fill the gaps and ensure you receive compassionate care that can always be counted on.

Let us know if you or someone you know would like to join the team! We offer competitive pay, benefits, a chance to help the local community, and a unique employment experience that can be rewarding in more ways than one. We’re particularly in need of friendly, compassionate folks looking for employment as a Personal Support Worker (PSW), Registered Nurse (RN), or Housekeeper. By working together, Qualicare and local communities can ensure everyone receives the care they need and deserve!
