Coronavirus Advice for Carers and Families

Everyone wants to protect their loved ones from the Coronavirus, particularly if they have underlying conditions or are immuno-suppressed. So, Glen Caring has put together this short guide for carers and the families of those we care for.

Our Carers will follow these guidelines to protect those in their care. But it’s important that relatives also do all they can to avoid spreading the virus to family members who may be vulnerable. So please read on….

First let’s take a look at spotting signs of Coronavirus infection:

The Symptoms of Coronavirus

  1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
  2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. COVID-19 will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3 to 4 days
  3. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes a further 5 to 6 days.
  4. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
  5. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning.

It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.

 

How to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus

It’s important to know how the virus works and spreads, because there is a lot of confusion and misinformation out there. This way we can all play our part in protecting ourselves and others from COVID-19.

  1. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the sun.
  2. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
  3. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
  4. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours but normal laundry detergent will kill it.
  5. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
  6. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, touch your nose or mouth unwittingly and so on.
  7. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
  8. Can’t emphasise enough – drink plenty of water!

Spread The Word – Not the Virus

Share this information as widely as you can, both online and verbally.

If you are worried that you or someone you look after may be at risk, NHS 111 offers direct guidance and have set up an online coronavirus helpline. You can also call 111, letting them know that you are a carer.

Read NHS answers to common questions about COVID-19 here.

Carers UK also offer guidance here.
