Keeping Seniors and Caregivers Informed

SSSEVA is actively addressing the specific needs of older adults, aged 60+, during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are updating our website and Facebook page as new information is confirmed.

What can family and caregivers do to help seniors prepare?

  • Know what medications your loved one is taking and help them maintain the amounts they need. Let them know there should be no need to stop taking their medications or only taking partial doses.
  • Monitor food and other medical supplies (oxygen, incontinence, dialysis, wound care) needed and create a back-up plan.
  • Stock up on non-perishable food to have on hand in your home to minimize trips to stores.
  • If you care for a loved one living in a care facility follow the recommended visitation policies. It is for the health and safety of everyone involved. 

 

Important Note on Prevention

At this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following precautions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

 

Know the facts about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). 

The CDC is your best source for timely, accurate information. Here are some helpful fact sheets and posters they've provided to help get the word out. 

 

Beware of Scams

There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges, or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure COVID-19 online or in stores.

 

Useful Links

There is a lot of misinformation going around that has the potential to cause unnecessary stress. The best way to stay informed is by checking with trusted sources. We've compiled a list of useful links to help you stay informed and prepared: 

From the Centers for Disease Control
From AARP
From the American Psychological Association:
