The COVID-19 pandemic has caused physical and mental harm to home healthcare clinicians as well as the patients we serve. As home healthcare professionals, we became acutely aware of our patients' suffering while simultaneously dealing with our own personal and professional challenges. It is critical that those who provide healthcare learn how to manage the deleterious effects of this frightening virus.

Home healthcare providers must be able to manage their own psychological needs before they can assess and intervene with the multiple mental health consequences of anxiety and depression in their patients that can result from COVID-19.
