Windward Life Care is committed to helping our clients and the larger community avoid the effects of coronavirus. The individuals we serve are the most vulnerable. Those of us who come into contact with older and disabled adults must take steps to protect them and ourselves.
Windward Life Care and Windward Home Care employees became eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in January 2021, and information has been distributed to all staff. Below are some of our staffers after receiving their first vaccination shots.

I am an older adult. What can I do to protect myself?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends these steps for older adults and people with underlying medical conditions (like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease) who appear to be most vulnerable to the virus. The steps include: ensuring you have medication and other supplies; frequent handwashing; avoiding non-essential air travel and cruise travel; avoiding people who are showing signs of respiratory illness; and staying away from crowds (social distancing).
