We have been closely following Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and reports from the CDC, the World Health Organization and other state and local entities, and our thoughts have undeniably been with all those affected.
Recent news of the virus starting to spread in the U.S. is unsettling. While it’s natural to worry and wonder what could happen if the spread of the virus gets worse, it’s also important not to panic… but instead to be armed with helpful information from the experts.
Of course, we at FirstLight Home Care are deeply committed to the health, safety and well-being of all our clients, families, caregivers and staff. Our goal is always to be prepared and take the proper precautions. We do have policies and protocols in place to ensure that the people caring for our clients and their families are prepared, not panicked.
Caregiver website DailyCaring gathered the latest news and research about coronavirus, how it affects seniors, and how to protect against it. We wanted to share this with our readers as well because we have so many family caregivers providing care to their parents, grandparents and other elderly loved ones.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is constantly revising its website to provide updated Coronavirus information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance. It’s important to check back here often for the latest information.
We hope and pray for a swift end to all of this.
