Has any one any suggestions on how to cope if you should self isolate and your husband needs carers night and morning?

hi @Jemh
I hope this worry isn't because you have heard that carer visits are to be withdrawn
personally I'd say keep those visits for as long as possible
if you don't need to help the carers, maybe let them in and then yourself go to another room so you keep your distance from them and if your husband can be left for a while, don't immediately go back to him
sorry if this is off the mark

I have been wondering all day what's going to happen in my house I look after my mum full time who is bed bound in a hospital bed in our home,I feed mum and have to hold her drinks during the day while she sips from a straw.
She has 4 care visits a day with 2 carers at each call that give personal care,I have type 2 diabetes and at the moment I feel like a sitting duck waiting to catch the virus from a carer,or if mum gets it from a carer I will get it from mum.
