Senior care and wellness is the priority of BlueSea Care. With the Covid – 19 outbreak, it is important that seniors take several parts of their wellness into consideration.
A part of the pandemic which is changing the needed care is with senior living facilities as well as the need to have in-home care. A part of the attempt to stop the spread of the virus also has led to senior care centers limiting social connections and is leading to distancing.
Most assisted living communities, because of their risk with the virus, have banned groups of more than 100 people from being in the same vicinity. This means that large groups in assisted living are restricting activities as well as their capacity to remain in the facilities.
Not only are the communities creating a high risk issue, but seniors who are unable to travel because of exposure to the virus are experiencing complications. Visitations are restricted as well as activities.
Safety protocols in assisted living, while being reinforced, are difficult to provide. A large number of individuals in the same vicinity creates high vulnerability rates with difficulties in social isolation.
Looking at Coronavirus caregiving alternatives, especially in the State of California, may assist in alleviating some of these issues.
