Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has recommended the use of face masks as a preventative measure when social distancing is difficult. Robin Trust is therefore calling all of those who are by the means and have the ability to make face masks for our care warriors on the frontline.
As these masks need to be washed after each use a bulk amount will be needed. The initiative we calling for is extended beyond the needs of our Care Warriors. We will be sharing any masks we collect, over and above what we need, with other organisations with Care Warriors on the frontline.
It you are keen on supporting this initiative below are some resources to help guide your endevours:

8 ways to ease into, in-home care for seniors

1. Start slowly and allow time for them to get used to the idea
Your older adult might need time to adjust to the idea of having someone in their house.

To ease the transition, start off slowly, have the aide only come a few hours each week and focus on less personal tasks. Then, add hours and additional tasks as your older adult becomes more comfortable with the idea and that person.
