How to Properly Use a Medical Face Mask
Whether you're a professional caregiver, family or friend caregiver, or just a member of the community doing the right thing, the proper use of a medical face mask is critical to its effectiveness. Masks are most effective when used in combination with FREQUENT hand-cleaning with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water. Everyone who uses a medical face mask needs to study how to use it safely and dispose of it properly. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), you should ROTATE masks for up to 72 hours, and keep them dry and stored in an OPENED Zip Lock bag or brown paper bag when not in use. Be sure to discard masks in the trash after being used three times or if becomes wet or damaged. Sealing the trash and taking it out to your trash bin immediately is also a best practice.
Fresh, Hearty Meals Help Make Quarantine Bearable and Keep Caregivers, Seniors and Seniors' Families Healthy
As our country continues to push through the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-home care industry has an added strain of caring for the most vulnerable population and doing what we can to help keep clients healthy and safe in their homes. One of the many challenges, especially for those who are quarantined or otherwise required to stay in their homes, is the ability to access healthy, fresh food.

2018 Alzheimer's Walk
Right at Home San Marcos was proud to participate in supporting the Alzheimer’s Texas 11th Annual Hays County Alzheimer’s Walk on October 13, 2018. 100% of the funds raised stay in Texas.
Right at Home San Marcos was an active supporter at the event and had a member active on the walk committee. The purpose of the walks is to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and related disorders, support families currently facing the disease, and to honor those we have lost to it.
The rain the morning of the walk didn’t stop the participants. The morning was filled with socializing, education, and celebrating the people we were there for. Right at Home Brenham will be participating in the 4th Annual Bastrop/Fayette County walk on Saturday October 27th at the Towers Nursing Home in Smithville, Texas.
