A person with a serious underlying medical condition is at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
With care at home, you must not only protect the sick patient, you must protect household members and everyone else entering the home (caregivers from outside, hospice team, other visitors, etc.). You need to keep the Coronavirus from entering and spreading within your home.
We created this Primer for you based on our experience serving Caring House residents on hospice during the Coronavirus pandemic. We are not doctors or medical personnel and have gathered information from the CDC and other sources believed to be reliable. Consult with your own healthcare and/or hospice professional about precautions you should take.
We provide this Primer to you as a community service to help you and others provide care at home and keep everyone involved as healthy and safe as possible.
