In light of the coronavirus pandemic, Agylia Care has released a new series of short video and animated guides to help Carers with the care and support they’re providing to themselves, family, friends, neighbours or anyone in need.
Agylia Care is a social enterprise, supported by Health Education England, that aims to provide all Carers - unpaid and professionals - with easy access to training and support to improve the standard of health and social care across the UK.
The new coronavirus guides are available for free on the Agylia Care App. There is no need to sign up to the Agylia Care service, but for those who do, they will have access to additional general care guides. The Agylia Care App is available on iOS and Android, and can be used on mobile and tablet devices.
The new guides give the latest advice on areas that include:
- What is coronavirus?
- Staying at home to self-isolate
- Have I got coronavirus?
- Coronavirus and caring
- Six steps to preparing sensibly
- How to wash your hands effectively
More guidance will be added in the future.
In addition to the coronavirus guides, the Agylia Care App also provides Carers with access to a further range of over 70 guides, videos and other resources covering topics such as cancer care, children’s care, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health, support for carers and many others. Carers can take advantage of the free sign up to the Agylia Care service to access the additional resources.
For Carers in areas where their Local Authority or NHS Trust has subscribed to the Agylia Care service, then over 780 guides are available.
Tim Buff, CEO at Agylia Care said, “The coronavirus pandemic has had a big impact on the way we live our day-to-day lives. With the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions amongst the most vulnerable to the virus, the way we visit, spend time and care for ourselves, family, friends or neighbours has changed.”
“The new free coronavirus guides available on the Agylia Care App are there to help us all maintain good personal health and ensure we continue to provide the care and support needed in a safe way.”
