Remember growing up and going on family vacations with our parents or going to visit our grandparents and being spoiled? Those are some good memories….Today, while we’re busy with work, our families and daily life, we still must care for our senior parents, as well. Our seniors are getting older and require more supervision and monitoring. How do we effectively care for our senior parents amid COVID-19 times. Life as we knew it is no longer… we must adapt and stay ahead of this virus to preserve life.
It’s important for our seniors to stay at home and maintain the continuity of their daily life. Seniors are a high risk for infection and diseases. Some of our seniors have medical conditions that require care 24/7. Patience and compassion along with trained infection prevention hygiene must be common practices for in-homecare amid COVID-19 times. Here’s a few steps to follow to ensure their safety:
- Hands washing/sanitizing frequently
- Must wear facemasks at all times
- Disinfecting frequently all common items/areas
- Report any changes of condition
- Cancel non-essential doctor’s appointments, schedule phone doctor appointments instead
- Avoid gatherings, social distancing
- Encourage exercise
- Take all required medications daily
- Avoid contact with anyone with cold symptoms
