Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the Coronavirus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

Despite many on-going clinical trials across the world, there is currently no specific vaccine or treatment for Coronavirus. The World Health Organisation (WHO) will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.

In spite of this, with a live-in carer, you can continue to live safely and independently during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Benefits of live-in care during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Live-in care is the safest form of care for older people during the coronavirus pandemic. The last place you need to move to right now is a care home or nursing home. Far better to have dedicated one to one care in a safe, secure and familiar place, like home.

  • Carefour carers are all trained in infection control. Equally important, they practice good hygiene as part of their day to day duties
  • Our carers live in your home 24 hours a day 7 days a week, thus reducing unnecessary contact from multiple health care professionals
  • Our carers will try and do as much online for you as possible. Examples being, online shopping and arranging medication deliveries. As a result, less exposure to members of the public as possible
  • Good for mental health and wellbeing. For instance, our carers will lock down with you if required, keeping your spirits high, reducing loneliness and helping you with IT to access your family and friends online.

Care Homes during COVID-19

According to The Progressive Policy Think Tank  “it is now clear that Covid-19 has hit hardest in this country’s care homes instead. New data from the Office for National Statistics show that the number of deaths recorded in care homes in England and Wales this year is more than double the average from previous years. This is a national tragedy. Families across the country are grieving for loved ones.” As a result, people are looking for other options to care homes, choosing Live-in Care at home to protect and look after their elderly relatives.

Carefour and COVID-19

Undoubtedly, there is no more important or urgent issue than COVID-19 when considering care for yourself or a loved one. Hence, we are pleased to announce that Carefour has no recorded cases of COVID-19.
