5 Home Care Tips To Keep Your Family Safe From Coronavirus

5 Home Care Tips To Keep Your Family Safe From Coronavirus

The coronavirus is posing a huge challenge for everybody. But no group is at greater risk than the elderly. Here are five home care tips to keep your family safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

1. Have Handwashing Parties

The concept of the handwashing party is great if you have young children. But even if you don’t have children, the concept is sound. You need to ramp up your hygienic practices. Wash you hands whenever you come home, before every meal, and after every time you touch objects such as money, credit cards, keys, etc. Wipe down doorknobs and other commonly touched surfaces regularly. Do not touch your face and point out if other members of your household touch theirs.

2. Stay Home

Seriously, just stay home. It’s remarkable how many people have a problem with this, but by staying you home you greatly reduce the chance of catching and transmitting the virus. If you have a senior parent or elderly loved one living with you, staying home is even more important. Only go outside for essentials such as groceries and medication and to go to work if you cannot work from home.

3. Practice Social Distancing

Another valid reason to go outside is for exercise. But only if you maintain a six-foot distance from everybody around you. Social/physical distancing is key. Only physically socialize with people in your household. You can always digitally socialize with other friends and family if you have the means to do so. If you’ve never figured out any of the many video chat apps, now is the time to do so.

4. Limit Contact Between You And Your Elderly Loved Ones

The coronavirus pandemic is scariest for the elderly and those who love them. If you have a senior parent or other loved one who does not live with you, you’re probably worried for them and want to see them. After all, the coronavirus has proven far more lethal for the elderly; of course, you want to see your parents as much as possible. But you shouldn’t. Every time you see them is another opportunity to transmit the virus. You’ll just have to call them.

5. Consider In-Home Care

Senior care facilities are often great. But let’s be honest, the coronavirus is tearing through some senior care communities at startling rates. If you have a loved one living in such a community, you should consider pulling them out and having them live with you, at least temporarily. By hiring an in-home care worker, you might be able to reduce the risk of exposure to coronavirus. To learn more about in-home care or the coronavirus and the elderly, please contact us.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.

I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
