After 20 years, we have seen the hurricanes come and go, but we take each one serious and plan ahead. Due to the pending #HurricaneMatthew, we have activated our hurricane plan, which involves changes in service and evacuations of some clients. A Hurricane Plan was completed at the time we start service for each client. For clients and families that we assist, we have prepared this internet announcement to share our emergency information.
During the Hurricane Warning until the “All Safe” is declared by our Director of Nursing, ALL hourly service is suspended. Once we resume normal operations, we will contact each client and/or family member to confirm restart of our hourly service.
If an aide has been requested on the Hurricane Plan, we provide home health services on a “live-in” basis. Live-In care is where the aide remains with the client on a 24 hour basis. If the client resides in an evacuation area and has requested our assistance to arrange a hotel, we are providing the hotel details below.
Alternative Home Health Care has made contract arrangements with the Courtyard Marriot in Sunrise. We believe this location has a lot of advantages over other options in the area such as:
Onsite electric generator.
Reserved Handicap Accessible Room
Luxury Marriot Bedding
Alternative manager’s live very distance of hotel.
1st grid for Florida Power & Light for power restoration.
Easy Highway Accessible
Home Health Aide Workforce
Close proximity to other conveniences such as Walgreen’s, Winn Dixie, Wal-Mart, other restaurants and retail.
The Bistro Café onsite
