The kind of angels bringing health
That group from the commercials, Visiting Angels, has created a "Fight the Flu Kit" for sick oldsters.
Apparently, this flu is attacking older people like mad--and killing them.
The group also will come into the home and flu-proof it--sanitizing, taking the residents to the doctor, and running errands so people with low immunity don't have to go out among coughing crowds.
You could probably assemble your own kit:
Paper towels--better to use in the bathroom than cloth.
A thermometer--over 102, could be the flu!
Vitamin C or orange juice in a box--ups immunity.
Pens--using a public pen in a bank or someplace can transfer germs.
Lysol spray for door knobs and light switches.
Hand sanitizer wipes--Baby wipes don't have the virus killing power.
Places to avoid: Public restrooms, the mall, grocery store, restaurants, and of course--surprise--the Library!
Who wipes off a book?
Visiting Angels was created in 1991 to help seniors on their homes. Check out www.visitingsangels.com.
