As the situation with Covid-19 evolves, it’s important to know what support is available to you and your loved ones during these uncertain times.
Public Health England has recently given direction that people over 70 years of age and those with pre-existing medical conditions are at a much higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms if they were to contract Covid-19. Those deemed to be at increased risk from coronavirus include people with COPD, Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Failure and Autoimmune Deficiencies, to name a few.
It is therefore imperative that people in these high-risk groups take additional measures to protect themselves, by avoiding nonessential travel and finding a way of maintaining access to essential care, medication and other essential supplies without exposing themselves to unnecessary risk by coming into contact with lots of different people.
Within these at-risk groups, there will be some individuals who are in need of daily care and support. And, as family members begin to socially distance themselves from vulnerable adults, it is imperative that these vulnerable individuals are not left alone during this critical time and that they still receive not only the vital care and support that they require but also have some form of companionship during what is a difficult time for everyone.
Live-in care is one of the safest forms of care during the COVID-19 outbreak. Live-in care can be a viable short-term alternative during this time since the person receiving care will have a dedicated carer staying with them at home for an extended period of time.
Take a look at some of the benefits of having a live-in carer:
