Providing care and support at home to people who have had COVID-19Providing care and support at home to people who have had COVID-19

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has published a quick guide to help homecare workers provide care and support to people who have left hospital after having COVID-19. It explains what to expect as these people return to their lives at home under new circumstances.

SCIE advise that some of the difficulties that people might experience after a discharge from hospital include longer-term damage to the heart and lungs, difficulty swallowing, muscle weakness, fatigue, skin damage, confusion, and wider mental health problems or feelings of reduced wellbeing that affects their ability to resume day-to-day activities.

Members throughout the UK may find this advice helpful.
