Avoid Spreading Germs
Tip # 5: By: Caregiver Sandra
Handling raw protein products (meats, eggs, fish, pork) has a high risk of spreading bacteria and harmful germs, especially to susceptible seniors with weakened immune systems. Wash your hands properly after handling these items and prior to touching anything else. Also, the plates, bowls, cutting boards and utensils used in preparing these foods must be washed before they are used again.
Sharing Our ExperienceOur caregivers help their residents successfully deal with physical, mental, social and emotional challenges on a regular basis. At the same time, they also strive to help each senior to maintain their personal dignity.
On this page, our caregivers share some of their experiences with the hope of aiding family members who are caring for an elderly loved one.
