Maintain Personal Safety and Self-Care

During the pandemic here are some tips on maintaining your personal safety and self-care...

 

• In order to be safe and stay healthy, limit contact with visitors, stay in as much as you can and continue to follow guidelines from the CDC. While most of us are very focused on the person we are caring for, it is essential to also care for yourself.

 

• For high risk individuals, such as those with dementia and underlying health conditions, consider having the primary caregiver self-isolate with the care recipient.

 

• Make sure to have a back-up plan should you get ill as the primary caregiver.
