Now, more than ever, may be a good time to consider in-home health care for your senior loved ones. Though group and nursing homes are doing their best to stem the influx of COVID cases, the more people someone is exposed to, the more at-risk a person is. Sadly, this is even more true for our elderly population. Many seniors residing in these facilities live in close proximity to one another, with some rooms having double occupants.
How COVID-19 Is Drastically Altering Senior Care
Unfortunately, many nursing homes simply don’t have the finances, staff, or time to implement all the changes they need in order to protect staff and clients. Hopefully, in time, they will be able institute the kind of techniques necessary to protect all residents. In the meantime, without proper personal protection equipment and enough space for a quarantine wing, the residents of these places are, unfortunately, at higher risk of contracting an illness that thrives on close personal content – something that is hard to get away from in nursing homes.
