“Hi, I’m Andrew and I work for www.caresourcer.com, a company that helps people find care. But if you have a loved one who is currently in a homecare service, with the coronavirus going there’s a couple of things you should be thinking about.

The second thing that’s equally important is telling them how you can help should a staff shortage arise. For instance, could you step in and help with a visit here or there, so that their staff can go to those clients who have no loved ones to help support them?
