Foothills Family Services remains committed to making sure home is an optimal setting for home nursing, rehab, and retirement living. The novel COVID-19 virus has proven particularly serious for seniors and people with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease. Fortunately, our clients in Virginia can rest assured that our home health staff is already well trained in infection control. Furthermore, we are currently reinforcing that training. We have also trained our staff to monitor their own health and to stay as safe as possible. If you need nursing, therapy, or personal aide support in the coming months, remember the relative safety of receiving that care at home rather than in more group settings. Our safety techniques work to minimize the risk of infectious disease spread for our patients.
If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.
