You can’t get any more hands on than helping people with their daily routines, whether that's assisting them to wash, shower, dress, feed, toilet or helping them attend medical care.
When you’re working hands-on all the time, the requirements of your job might seem to be at odds with the new requirements around hand-washing and social distancing.
