Tips for Multigenerational Families During COVID-19

Helping Our PACE Seniors Stay Safe at Home

Coronavirus Prevention Begins With Excellent Hygiene

While our PACE centers remain closed, it is important for our participants to continue to practice strong hygiene habits at home. Many of our participants often spend time with their multigenerational families. While having the support and companionship of nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and other family members during this time is so important, it is also critical that all family members—including children—practice good hygiene habits during COVID-19. 

  1. Wash Hands Regularly and Thoroughly: It goes without saying that we all should be washing our hands regularly. That was a fact even before we knew of COVID-19. Now, it is even more important. Make sure that any children in your household are also washing their hands, especially after being out in public. Consider washing your hands as a family while singing songs like the popular “Baby Shark” or “Happy Birthday.”
  2. Avoid Touching Your Face: We know we need to do this, but it can be hard to remember! Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. You may need to remind younger children of this or try to turn it into a game.
  3. Clean and Disinfect Daily: Try to focus your daily cleaning and disinfecting on the high-touch surfaces in your home, like tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, and sinks. If you have any toys in your home for grandchildren, wipe them down after play. Keep in mind that phone screens, electronic devices, and computer keyboards also need to be disinfected.

We hope these quick tips will be helpful to you and your families. If McGregor PACE can provide additional resources at this time, do not hesitate to contact our team.
