COVID-19 and Elder Home Care

We’re all familiar with the news about the devastating spread of COVID-19 through nursing homes, among residents and staff, in the East Bay and beyond. But many of our elder clients receive long-term care in their own homes. The home care industry has had to respond in a variety of ways to ensure continuing quality care for their clients and to keep clients and staff safe.

Francesca Vogel with Home Care Assistance joins us to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the home care industry, the steps being taken to protect elderly clients and care givers and  what permanent changes in the industry are likely to be necessary, even after this crisis is over, to ensure both safety and high-quality care.
