At Visiting Angels of Aurora, we are with you in the fight against coronavirus. All of us have seen the headlines about the spread of COVID-19 in Aurora and across the country. While we are still learning about COVID-19, the disease has been noted for its ability to spread through communities around the world. It’s more important than ever that elders have every resource they need to stay safe, healthy, and comfortable in their homes. Visiting Angels of Aurora is ready to be your partner in senior care to protect the aging loved ones in your life.

Visiting Angels of Aurora Offers Essential Senior Care Wellness Tips During COVID-19 for Seniors

The most important way to keep your loved one safe is to prevent them from coming into contact with COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has outlined ways that the coronavirus can spread in our community:

  • Person to person - people who have the coronavirus spread it through touch, coughs, and sneezes.
  • On surfaces - on hard surfaces (like metal), COVID-19 can last for up to 2-3 days; on more porous surfaces, like cardboard, COVID-19 can last for a few hours.
  • In the air - COVID-19 remains active for up to three hours in the air.
