Self Isolation and Carers
We have been told we should self isolate for 12 weeks due to health issues, but havent really been giving much as far as guidance on how to go about doing it. My husband is a Tetraplegic and has very low lung capacity as well as some other health issues. I have done his care myself until about a year ago when I hurt my back and had to have carers come in to help with his morning routine. I find myself having to make a decision now on what self isolation means for us. Can we continue to have the carers come in the mornings or should I do his care myself for the next 12 weeks. I am super concerned that allowing carers to come in isn't really self isolating and puts him at risk of pnemonia which is the biggest killer of Quadraplegics. Helppppp...What are others doing in regards to isolating for health issues and carers?
