How do I avoid getting MRSA while I help my infected daughter and grandson?

My daughter and her son are being treated for MRSA. The antibiotic she's taking is making her feel horribly ill, and she needs help with her 2 small children. Her husband is a firefighter and won't be home till Tuesday.
I want to take every precaution to avoid getting infected. Her son has been on antibiotics for 6 days, and she started hers yesterday. I haven't found any info on whether or not they're contagious now.
I would appreciate any insight or personal experience. Please help allay or validate my fear of getting this infection. Although I want to help her, I am diabetic and am concerned about complications should I get MRSA.
