COVID 19 + Elder Care What You Need to Know Featuring Nicole Howell

It’s almost surreal how COVID-19 has changed our daily lives, but even more so for those most vulnerable – our older and dependent adults. Unfortunately, those who need the most protection and care have nearly had it all taken away due to no visitation policies. Other than care staff and employees on the frontlines, who is ensuring proper care and protection? Who is ensuring residents are still able to connect with a loved one and the outside world? How has oversight changed since isolation has become the norm of this pandemic? What can you do to make sure your loved one is safe, happy, and cared for with the support needed?

On Thursday, April 16, at 11:30 AM PST we broadcasted a special live edition of Absolute Trust Talk with special guest Nicole Howell who is the Executive Director at Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano, and Alameda. She has been at the forefront of COVID-19 safety efforts among seniors and the elderly in long-term care. We were excited to have her join us to share what’s going on with elder care, long-term care facilities, and how people can stay connected with their loved ones in isolation.

[Ad] With daily life-changing so rapidly due to coronavirus, it’s challenging to keep up or even think ahead, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be prepared. People with COVID-19 get sick quickly.
