My clients’ families are extremely worried and thinking of stopping our visits.
We recognise providers are well prepared to respond to the challenge of containing coronavirus and will have robust infection control measures which will have already been implemented.
However, if the family still choose to cancel care visits and is able to support their loved one safely at home stopping the visit from care workers could reduce the chances of spreading coronavirus. If family were to become unable to provide support to their loved one because they became unwell (or for any other reason) families need to know they can get back in touch to reinstate the visits.
