As the days and weeks of quarantine progress, the taxing emotional effects increase.
Difficult as it is for most people, the challenges of loneliness are even greater for our elderly loved ones.
The Effects of Self-Quarantine for the Elderly – In many instances, not only are they limited in their ability to leave the home, the opportunities for visitors have also decreased.
Though virtual phone calls can help ease feelings of isolation, they don’t offer the same peace of mind as in-person visits to know that our loved ones are safe and well. Unfortunately, breaking quarantine guidelines to ease their loneliness can jeopardize their physical health.
During these times, trusted, compassionate caregivers that are medically trained and PPE prepared are essential.
Certified aides can ensure your home-bound loved ones are receiving safe well-checks to reduce their loneliness and maintaining healthy routines. Knowing your loved ones are safely protected during these visits also reduces anxiety and worry… theirs and yours.
