Important Senior Care Wellness Tips for Raynham, MA and Surrounding Areas

With older adults at higher risk for contracting a severe illness, like COVID-19, Raynham area families are wondering what they can do to protect their loved ones. In this global health crisis, the professionals at Visiting Angels of Raynham are here to provide you with vital information about COVID-19 and how our senior caregivers are protecting their clients from illness.

COVID-19: How it Spreads

Scientists and researchers learn more about COVID-19 with every passing day. As a result, there are many factors about the illness that we are unaware of. But, what we do know are three ways that the virus spreads, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): person-to-person, surfaces, and the air.

If an infected person coughs or sneezes, the illness has the possibility to travel to another person six-feet-away or closer. As for surfaces, the illness can linger for hours, if not days spending on the surface. The illness can also linger in the air for three hours.

Specialized Care in Raynham and Surrounding Areas

During this global health crisis, our caregivers are ready and willing to be the first line of defense for those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19: seniors.

To cater to our client’s unique health and wellness needs, as well as address pre-existing conditions, we offer many different senior care services to the greater Raynham community. These services include personal care, Alzheimer’s care, companion care, and end-of-life care.    

How Else Does Visiting Angels Protect Seniors From COVID-19?

With guidance from the CDC, we have established key practices within our senior care to help seniors maintain their health and wellness.

  • Provide personal care: Maintaining good hygiene is an important part of warding off illnesses. Some of the personal care tasks that our caregivers assist with include washing hands, brushing teeth, bathing, and toileting.
  • Know the symptoms: Our caregivers are well-aware of COVID-19 symptoms (fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chest pain, and confusion) and will react quickly.
  • Practice social distancing: One of our caregivers would be happy to perform errands such as grocery shopping and picking up medications to ensure that their client can stay at home as much as possible and minimize the possibility of contracting the illness.
  • Maintain a clean home: To ensure surfaces stay sanitized, one of our caregivers can assist your loved one in housekeeping.
  • Be mindful: It’s important to avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Also, if you’re sneezing or coughing, using a tissue or the crook of your elbow is key. Our caregivers can remind your loved one about these important tips.   

At Visiting Angels of Raynham, we will do all that we can to ensure your loved one stays safe at home. Contact us today at 774-501-3861 to learn more about our senior care and schedule a free in-home consultation.
