COVID announcement

With ongoing community transmissions of COVID-19, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that seniors stay in their homes as much as they are able.


Our in-home care services at En Su Casa Caregivers help make this possible, ensuring that the seniors of our community are getting the support they need with activities of daily living while staying safely at home.

How We Are Protecting Our Clients:

En Su Casa Caregivers continues to actively monitor the developments and guidance regarding COVID-19 from public health agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


We are meeting the needs of our community by providing care to both new and existing clients, and have developed additional safety precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Our COVID-19 Safety Protocols:

  • Personal Protective Equipment is made available to all En Su Casa employees at their local offices. All caregivers are required to wear a mask as personal protective equipment while caring for a client in their home.


  • Caregivers are provided with training and special education on topics including COVID-19 symptoms, infection control protocols, proper handwashing and disinfecting techniques, and reporting requirements.
  • We require daily employee screenings for all caregivers and office coordinators. Caregivers who do not pass the screening are removed from client shifts and instructed to quarantine for a period of 14 days or until a negative COVID-19 test has been obtained. Following CDC criteria, caregivers will return to work only when it has been determined that they no longer pose a risk of transmitting the virus to clients or other employees.


  • We have developed an incentive program for caregiver vaccinations to ensure our workforce has the best chance of staying safe from COVID-19.

What We Know About COVID-19

Coronavirus disease is an infectious respiratory disease that spreads primarily through person-to-person contact by way of respiratory droplets. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, the transmission of the virus can occur to others who are in close contact (within about 6 feet). COVID-19 can also be spread by touching your eyes, mouth, or nose after touching a surface or object that has come into contact with the virus. People who are infected but do not show symptoms can also spread the virus to others.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Elderly individuals and those with underlying medical conditions are more likely to develop serious illnesses.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus.

How To Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine has proven the most effective way to decrease community transmissions of the virus. As of May 12, 2021, everyone age 12 and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in the state of Texas.

Individuals are considered fully protected from the virus two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
