Every family and group living together need to know how to care for someone at home. Whether members are in quarantine, are infected and need to be isolated, or develop “emergency signs” defined by the CDC that indicate the immediate need for professional care; everyone needs to know what to do.
- WHO should care for someone at home?
- WHAT do I need to know to provide care?
- HOW do I safely care for someone at home?
- WHEN do I seek help from doctors?
- WHY do I need to get ready NOW?
Go to https://www.medtacglobal.org/coronavirus-response/ for short videos covering the critical topics. Leading emergency medicine, critical care, and infection preventionists will guide you through a step-by-step approach to safely care for a loved one. You will be provided with checklists, templates, and videos to guide that care.
