The Scottish Government have outlined advice for unpaid carers who visit or live with a friend or family member to provide help with personal care such as washing or dressing. It covers the situations in which unpaid carers may require personal protective equipment (PPE). The advice can be found here.
It is split into:
- general advice for all unpaid carers to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
- advice for carers who live in the same household as the person they care for
- advice for carers who do not live in the same household as the person they care for
- where to get PPE
