The Importance of Caregiving During COVID-19April 8, 2020
In-home caregiving has become an essential part of our society. During this outbreak of COVID-19, the importance of experienced caregiving is being highlighted throughout the country and the world.
Caregivers provide essential long-term services to their recipients of care. These services can range from emotional to physical support. The tasks that caregivers provide support overall personal care of their care recipients.
Why it Matters Now
With the need for people to stay home and practice social distancing, caregivers have become lifelines for some of their recipients of care. Seniors are at an increased risk for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Because of this, caregivers are often the only people they can interact with and rely on for help with daily tasks and even for constant human interaction.
Whether it is help with grocery shopping, preparing meals, or even general companionship caregivers around the country are stepping up to provide care that protects the livelihoods of their care recipients.
Caregivers are also making it so that your elderly loved ones are able to stay at home without the risk of isolation. This is just as necessary and important in the overall health and well-being of seniors.
