Hey All,

Our editorial team is developing an article for those of you who depend on caregivers who don't live with you.

How have you been handling visits from caregivers? Have some physical visits become virtual?

Have caregivers "virtually" accompanied you to your doctor's appointments?

Do you have any safety/distancing strategies for when you do need a physical visit from a caregiver to your home?

Let us know how this has been going for you! Please be as detailed as you would like.

Thank you!

Other people are better than me because they visit me with a mask, wash their hands, hands sanitize. I stay home and also been tested though. My mom has no regard of who she's been around and she works in a restaurant. I'm sure she washes her hands but when I imagine the rest of the people she interacts with but she has to wear a mask, plastic shield and gloves. Everyone from Chicago is super careful. She has gone to 1dr visit with me but she was 1st asked to wait in the car but I needed someone with me.

Also get calls and texts a lot.

Honestly i don't know how to tell her visit less lol
