Coronavirus Precautions

Lisa Norton, Development & Communications Coordinator

March 12, 2020

To protect the health and safety of our patients, clients, staff, and caregivers, Angela Hospice has had to make the difficult decision to postpone all grief support group meetings for the time being.

For those in need of grief counseling, please call our bereavement office at 734.779.6690 to schedule a one-on-one or telephone session, based on availability.

Thank you for your understanding, and we encourage you to review the following recommendations provided by the CDC to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy.

Keeping the Home Safe

What every American can do to decrease the spread of the coronavirus

Encourage your family members to…


  • Clean hands at the door and at regular intervals
  • Create habits and reminders to avoid touching their face and cover coughs and sneezes
  • Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly
  • Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning
  • Stop handshaking – use other non-contact methods of greeting
  • Limit food sharing

Significant underlying conditions include heart, lung, kidney disease; diabetes; and conditions that suppress the immune system

  • Have the healthy people in the household conduct themselves as if they were a significant risk to the person with underlying conditions. For example, wash hands frequently before interacting with the person, such as by feeding or caring for the person
  • If possible, provide a protected space for vulnerable household members
  • Ensure all utensils and surfaces are cleaned regularly


  • Give sick members their own room if possible, and keep the door closed
  • Have only one family member care for them
  • Consider providing additional protections or more intensive care for household members over 65 years old or with underlying conditions
