I don’t live with dad but they are using aprons (more so when doing personal care)I have reminded them to wash their hands and use sanitizer.(A lot of them leave it in their car!!!) I have provided it.. (I have told them to leave it in their pockets rather than their car..We shall see.Has everyone that has visiting carers,have they started to wear aprons and washing hands when entering your home yet?

Hi I'm going to have to speak to somebody tonight as they haven't worn an apron for a couple of nights,I was stupid not saying anything,she's a lovely lady that even reads a story to my mum now and again going over her own time I just assume she thinks it's stupid it might even be because she's very big they perhaps might not even fit her and possibly hasn't got the dexterity to fasten it behind her back as she's so wide,I'm going to have to mention it tonight,they always wear gloves.
We have yellow bags down here for gloves,aprons and pads. Goes to the incinerator to be burnt as classed as “contaminated “. Yellow bags are supplied by the council who come one day a week to collect it and leave another bag. It is a free service. You just need to contact the “clinical waste” department at the council.I'm going to remove the 2 waste bins from the lounge as aprons and gloves are often thrown in them,instead of being thrown in the outside bin,I'm not sure why they do that,they are lovely girls though,one of them has just lost her other main job in an office,so I'm sure she will be working lots of ours at the care company now instead and she's a very good carer so we will be pleased to see her more often
