GUIDE FOR SENIORS: Home-Proofing for COVID-19 and the Flu
Both COVID-19 and the seasonal flu pose dangers to seniors’ health. Fortunately, home-proofing measures such as disinfecting frequently touched surfaces help keep them safe.
Of course, many seniors live with other people such as their adult children and young grandchildren. In these cases, home-proofing becomes even more of a group effort. Everyone in the household should wash their hands regularly and have a plan for disinfecting packages and frequently touched surfaces. Depending on the severity of the situation, it might be necessary for people in the household to take additional measures such as limiting their contact with seniors or even the outside world.
