Covid-19 Elderly Care
While it’s not as bad as it once was, Covid-19 infection rates are still pretty high and people are still being hospitalized with the virus. This is important to remember when it comes to caring for the elderly. Seniors suffer severe Covid-19 symptoms at significantly higher rates than younger people. Being vaccinated and boosted reduces the risk considerably, but it doesn’t completely remove risk. Always Best Care of Norfolk can help secure Covid-19 vaccines for the elderly.
Is In-Home Care Safe With Regards To Covid-19?
Many senior living communities have suffered greatly over the past two years. Even well-run facilities struggles to contain the spread of coronavirus. Because of this, many seniors and their families moved out from, or decided not to move into, senior care communities. Instead, many opted to receive care in their own Norfolk-area homes.
Interacting with just one or two caregivers in your own home presents a significantly lower exposure risk than living in a senior care facility. The caregivers of Always Best Care of Norfolk follow a strict Covid-19 policy to minimize the possibility of transmission.
Covid-19 Post-Hospitalization Home Care For The Elderly
Many seniors have required hospitalization due to the coronavirus. But even when seniors recover enough from the virus to be discharged and are no longer contagious, their symptoms can linger. It’s common for people, especially elderly people, who were hospitalized with Covid-19 to continue feeling fatigued, achy, and to have difficulty concentrating and focusing their minds for weeks and even months after first coming into contact with the virus.
That’s why Always Best Care of Norfolk offers Covid-19 post-hospitalization home care for elderly Virginians. We offer all our home care services to elderly people who are recovering from Covid. We’re happy to help for as long as our clients need before they’re ready to step back into their lives after a bad case of Covid.
