Home care during the covid-19 pandemic

Pandemic fatigue is a real thing, but when your loved one requires specialized home care, it’s important not to let this fatigue cloud your judgment. Now, more than ever, home health care can serve as a lifeline to those that need it most. Home care services vary across the board, so research must be done to ensure that your loved ones’ needs are being met, especially during this challenging time.

When to seek emergency medical attention

Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Call 108 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
