Home Care Guide: Providing Care At Home During Pandemic Flu


As many as 1 in 4 people could get sick during a pandemic, with many of them seriously ill. Services and supplies we count on everyday may not be available. Every individual and family could be on their own, without care, for quite a while. This makes being prepared even more important.

The Home Care Guide for Pandemic Flu can be used to help you prepare at home to take care of your sick family or household members. It includes the following tools:

  • Lists of emergency supplies that can be used during any emergency, as well as supplies needed specifically for pandemic influenza.
  • Guidelines on how to limit the spread of disease at home.
  • Instructions on how to take care of sick family or household members safely and effectively.
  • Basic information about pandemic flu, avian flu and other topics.

The Home Care Guide for Pandemic Flu is available in two PDF versions: Full color or black and white. Electronic versions are only available at this time.
