5 Tips for Home Care to Prepare for the Coronavirus via Home Care Pulse

Home Care Pulse is a fantastic source of information and resources on any number of home care industry topics including marketing, Human Resources, Business Development, and beyond. 
On a more serious topic, likely on the minds of all of our readers, I recently read an article, "5 Ways Home Care Agencies Can Prepare for the Coronavirus" on ways to help combat the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that I wanted to share with you for your consideration.
I would like to preface all this by offering that Best Practices information can change rapidly as new information becomes available and as we learn more about COVID-19. So that means we all must continue to educate ourselves and adapt as the situation develops. As the Home Care Pulse article also notes, we urge everyone to continue your own research via sources such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), OSHA, and your federal, state, and local officials.
Please read the full article here for you to learn about the Best Practices they offer, but to get you started, here are the 5 ways that the article covers:

Educate your caregivers on how handwashing can prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Be vigilant about helping your clients receive needed medical help, whether or not coronavirus is the likely diagnosis.

Ensure that your caregivers are fully able to stay home if they’re sick.

Ensure that your clients will have access to necessary medications in the event of quarantine or home isolation.

Avoid panic and misinformation by following credible sources.

A sixth way to combat the Coronavirus that the article mentions and that I mentioned above is to continue to educate yourself and to stay up on the current Best Practices and developments.  Or as this excerpt from the article puts it, "Read More".
