COVID-19 information for home care workforce

Home care workers are a critical resource for tens of thousands of people in Massachusetts who need help meeting their personal and health care needs, from bathing and dressing to medication management. Because workers travel from residence to residence, their skill and knowledge about infection control can help prevent the spread of the coronavirus from one household to another, including their own.

University of Massachusetts-Lowell’s Safe Home Care and Sustainable Hospitals Program is offering eight fact sheets for home workers that cover topics ranging from personal protective equipment guidelines to disinfecting techniques and answers about chemical ingredients. The information is presented with graphics, tables and question/answer formats tailored to the home care community.
