Suggestions for Supporting the Safety Home Care Clients and Caregivers from Honor Home Care

A recent article posted by Honor home care, entitled, "Coronavirus Considerations for Home Care Agencies"  provided a number of suggestions that the home care industry can help to combat the spread of COVID-10 (Coronavirus).
As with our previous post, "5 Tips for Home Care to Prepare for the Coronavirus via Home Care Pulse" we must 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.
That means we all must continue to educate ourselves and adapt as the situation develops. We urge everyone to continue to do your own research via sources such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), OSHA, and federal, state, and local officials.
You can read the full article here, and since it does provide detailed suggestions for you to consider, please take a look.  As a start, here is a sampling of what is covered in the article and some of the resources shared: 

Stay Informed

There’s so much information about coronavirus that it’s hard to know where to source the most relevant breaking news. Some suggestions:

  • Follow NAHC on their excellent Twitter feed (@OfficialNAHC) and read their resources page.
  • Sign up for email updates from the CDC.
  • Follow your local city’s health department and police department twitter feeds.
  • Sign up for newsletters from your state home care association—many are offering coronavirus preparedness webinars.
  • Create Google alerts to get breaking news on coronavirus cases in your city or at nearby facilities.
  • Educate clients on the latest government updates, such as increased funding for coronavirus testing and tele-health services.

Prepare for Emergencies 

Care for Your Caregivers

Reassure Your Clients

Reiterating what I posted in our previous article: Let's all continue to stay up to date on the rapidly changing situation, guidelines, and rules to follow from our health, science, and governmental authorities so that we can do our part to keep us all as healthy and as safe as possible.
