There are so many little things that can become hazardous when ones immune system is compromised. I don’t want to make anyone paranoid but as caregivers there are certain subjects we should all be aware of. For example, chips on cups, plates, bowls, and even cutting boards can present a big problem and should be discarded. This is not a crazy exaggeration. When you find a chip you need to ask yourself, where did that chip go? The stomach of an elderly or ill person is not as strong as it once was and there’s no telling what kind of damage that little chip may be doing. So don’t hesitate,throw it out! Or be creative turn that special cup into a pencil holder, a bowl can catch keys but please remove it from the table.
Just a little something we can do to help protect those we care for.
