How to Keep Senior Wellness Up During COVID-19 in Kansas City, MO and Neighboring Communities with In-Home Care

As COVID-19 cases keep on increasing by the day, families are now more concerned than ever about their aging loved one’s health and safety. With how easily the virus spreads, it’s pertinent to know how it spreads, its symptoms, and how to prevent your loved ones from contracting it. First and foremost, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this disease can spread in multiple ways:

  1. Through Person-to-Person – the virus spreads easily and quickly between groups of people within six feet of one another.
  2. Through Surfaces – COVID-19 can last up to three days on hard surfaces like stainless steel and plastic.
  3. Through the Air – it can last for up to three hours in the air.
