COVID-19 Precautions for Home Health Care Workers

Safety of patients and care providers is our top priority–always–but particularly now when so much is riding on the proper precautions in delivering care. At Constellation, we are providing precautions for home health care workers and our employees with the support they need to safely deliver care to our in-home patients. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has the most up-to-date information on guidelines and precautions, and has extensive resources available for healthcare workers during this time. The following are recommendations and resources for staying safe:

Follow your training and stay current on the latest recommendations. 

Educate yourself on home health-specific precautions.

Care for yourself so you can care for others.

  • Find time each day to unwind with activities you enjoy.
  • Get adequate sleep to assist with stress management, immunity, and mood regulation.
  • Limit exposure to news and social media which may increase anxiety.
  • Connect with family and friends via email, video chat, text or telephone.
  • Incorporate meditation or boxed breathing into your daily routine. 
  • Eat nutritious food to support immunity, improve mental health, and maintain physical health
  • Move your body. Even if you are sheltering in place, find opportunities to move each day. 

Take care of yourselves and thank you for all you are doing.
