When you need to care for someone who is sick

Caring for a loved one who is sick can be scary in the best of times, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially anxiety-producing.

Dr. Norman Chenven, Founding CEO of Austin Regional Clinic, has tips on how to treat symptoms and how to know when it’s time to see the doctor, or the ER.

“In the majority of cases, the treatment for COVID-19 is to stay at home and treat symptoms with over-the-counter medications,” Dr. Chenven this recent ARC Healthcare Minute podcast.

With telemedicine from ARC available Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, you and your loved ones also have the option for online video or phone visits with a doctor.

Book an appointment at an Austin Regional Clinic, online or by calling the clinic closest to you.
