At this point, most of us have heard that COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting the elderly and most vulnerable members of our communities around the world. Here are some tips from the World Health Organization about how to care for our elders with whom we live, those elders who are living alone, and if you are an elder, how to protect yourself in the coming weeks and months.
What are some other ways we can support our elders through this time? If you don't live with can you reach out and share meaningful conversations? Self isolation is important right now but we can still talk on the phone, reach out over the internet and in other ways show that we're thinking about each other.
If you are an elder you may be wondering how best to protect yourself. Or need the people around you to understand your health concerns. Feel free to share these tip sheets with those you feel need the information.
Please leave a comment below if you have other helpful tips or questions about resources that you would like to know at this time. I will do my best to address them in another blog post.
Be well, everyone. Stay safe!
