COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, is currently considered a pandemic and serious threat to the populations of the world. It is especially dangerous for seniors, which means that it is especially important to follow the expert’s guidelines in order to minimize risk for the safety of residents in senior living and at home.

Not only that, but it’s in our nature to seek connection through physical contact or close proximity – handshakes, hugs, or even sitting next to one another.
In order to minimize the potential for slip-ups, many communities are practicing constant education for residents and employees, driving home how important it is to practice social distancing.
They have also introduced protocols such as:
Now, if you have a loved inside one of these communities, you may be wondering what you and others can do to help. The best way to help is to follow guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in your community. We also encourage you to connect with your loved one!
Reach out to the community your loved one lives in for more details on how to communicate best and whether you are able to make deliveries.
