The Most Contagious Diseases in Retirement Communities
Date:1/6/2014

(PRWEB) January 06, 2014

Home Care Assistance of West Texas, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is dedicated to community education around topics related to aging and longevity. In line with this commitment, Home Care Assistance of West Texas is raising awareness around conditions common in communal living environments. Individuals who reside in a close proximity to one another and who share amenities such as bathrooms and dining areas, are at a greater risk of contracting contagious illnesses. According to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), nursing home residents have little reserve to fight off the most rampant, contagious diseases including influenza, multidrug resistant organisms, skin infections and gastroenteritis.

"We know how quickly these illnesses can spread and how detrimental they can be to the elderly clients we care for," says Kendall Warren, Client Care Manager of Home Care Assistance West Texas. “For this reason, our caregivers spend time cleaning clients' homes each day, ensuring that your loved one is in the healthiest, safest environment possible."

Influenza, typically common between October and March, spreads rapidly by inhalation of droplets from coughing and sneezing. Multidrug resistant organisms like MRSA and VRE can also wreak havoc because both strains are resistant to antibiotics. The most contagious virus and one that employees and residents will want to take all precautions to avoid is the Norovirus. The virus causes inflammation in the stomach or intestines, causing stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea and vomit
