ROSEVILLE, Calif., Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Always Best Care Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced today system-wide rollout of the National Minority Health Association's (NMHA) COVID-19 vaccination reward program, Flex for Checks. The goal is to increase direct care worker and community vaccination rates across the country. The NMHA developed the program as part of a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Through this program, Always Best Care franchisees and their caregivers can earn money just by getting vaccinated and encouraging others in their community to do so as well. Caregivers are eligible to receive $25 for getting one shot or $50 for getting both doses of the shot. Additionally, franchisees and caregivers are eligible to receive $25 for any individual they encourage to register and get vaccinated.
Community members who are referred by a caregiver are eligible to receive $50 for getting one shot, or $100 for getting both doses of the shot. Caregivers qualify as both caregivers and community members, thus earning $150 for becoming vaccinated with the potential to earn an additional $25 for each community member they encourage to receive the vaccine. This results in a beneficial campaign focused on increasing the number of vaccinated people within every community in which Always Best Care operates.
"Joining the Flex for Checks program is another way we can do our part to help our franchisees and their dedicated staff safely care for their clients," said Jake Brown, President & CEO of Always Best Care. "By offering a cash incentive for getting vaccinated and inspiring others to get their shots, we hope to make a positive difference in vaccination efforts throughout our communities."
Safety has been paramount for the company throughout the pandemic. Late last year, Always Best Care announced it was a primary non-medical organization to be awarded a grant to facilitate rapid Abbott BinaxNOW COVID-19 testing. Through that initiative, the majority of Always Best Care franchises nationwide have the ability to test staff once a week.
