Is your loved one safe at a senior living community? It’s a question that you wouldn’t have even asked yourself before coronavirus (COVID-19). There’s no question that COVID-19 is a serious illness that seniors have to look out for. Your loved one needs to practice social distancing and do all they can to lower their risk.
Social distancing can make it challenging to know the level of care your loved one needs. And if you have any caregiving responsibilities, you’re probably putting in extra work to keep them safe. You start to wonder if a senior living community is the best place for your loved one, but you’re worried about their safety. Learn how senior living communities like Franciscan Ministries can keep your loved one safe while helping them celebrate life.
We know that COVID-19 can spread easily if left unchecked. After all, that’s why communities across the country are requiring people to wear masks when they go out. This fact makes many people nervous about helping their loved one move to a senior living community.
It’s important to remember that having your loved one stay at home, also has risks. Senior living communities like Franciscan Ministries, have strict COVID-19 health and safety measures to ensure safe senior living during COVID-19. Safety measures include:
