As a member of the care team, you play a valuable role. Taking steps to keep yourself and others around you safe and healthy is very important.

In the video above, a home care worker from Massachusetts shows you how to safely put on and take off any PPE you might need to wear when you care for a client or consumer-employer. You won’t need all of this PPE for every visit. Your supervisor will tell you what pieces of PPE you need.

After you watch the video, use the resources below to learn more about how to keep you, the people you are caring for, and your family safe from COVID-19, flu, and other germs.
