How Do You Care for a Paralyzed Person

The first step in your care for a paralyzed person is to understand the paralysis – how it affects your loved one and the treatments and care they need.

In addition to preventing bedsores and assisting the person with their activities of daily living, make sure to encourage your loved one to keep on with their life. Please enable them to socialize, engage in hobbies, exercise, and accomplish their goals.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
