Preparation Tips and Emergency Preparedness

  1. Look now at what, if any, durable medical equipment (DME) might help you do some things by yourself.
  2. Talk with your supports about exposure risk and how people can limit exposure.
  3. Have an idea of what other resources may exist to “fill in” some of your care worker’s tasks, like local restaurant delivery, pharmacy delivery, and grocery delivery.
  4. Wash food containers and use your own dishes for takeout. Use no contact services.
  5. Limit foot traffic in and out of the home, and have attendants disinfect common surfaces, appliances, and DME. Anyone coming into the home must wash their hands before touching anything.
  6. Have direct support workers designated as “essential personnel.” This will make it so they can come into restricted areas to get to the consumer, if needed.
  7. Have backup workers ready to go.
