We received an excellent question from a Caregiver this week and it’s likely many Caregivers are struggling with the same issue. So, we thought we’d share the question and the answer with all of you!
“The coronavirus has made us all more aware of the importance of handwashing. However, we can’t change the fact that barriers to handwashing exist in many healthcare settings, particularly home care.”
Hopefully the data we’ve gathered will offer some measure of clarity to home care owners as they navigate the uncharted waters of COVID-19.
Retention has always been important, but in a post-pandemic world, it’s more important than ever for your business to turn inward to your clients and employees.
We must remember that there are real people, many of whom are “at-risk seniors” living at home all alone with no one to talk to, unable to get out for fresh air, and lacking the technology to even see a familiar face now and then.
84% of respondents report that clients are pausing services because family members under shelter-in-place orders can care for them at this time.
The reality is that real face masks work 3 TIMES better than homemade ones. So, homemade face masks do provide some protection and some is better than none.
We’ve compiled this list of resources to help you stay up-to-date during COVID-19, and we’ll be updating it continually as we move forward through the crisis.
While the scope of the outbreak remains to be seen, coronavirus has the potential to disproportionately affect our senior population due to its high infection rate and long incubation period. Continual education and thorough preparation is key.
