Protecting our Elderly during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Discussions about the elderly and how we can best protect them has been a central theme throughout the on-going Covid-19 pandemic. As we brace ourselves for another year of living with the virus, we must consider the impact of separation on our elderly loved ones.

For those quarantining or ‘cocooning’ at home this can be an incredibly difficult time where they can experience loneliness, stress, insecurity about their health and other negative psychological effects. Perhaps your loved one's safety and wellbeing is an even greater concern at this time if they are affected by more serious health challenges such as Alzheimers or Dementia. 

With this in mind, what extra supports can we offer our cocooning family members to ensure their health and safety is being taken care of properly?


Embracing technology, the easier way…

Although mobile phones and tablets are essential and have been advised by the government and health authorities as a necessity for the vulnerable, there are certain drawbacks. Mobile devices can be very intimidating for older people to navigate, and the support they offer is entirely dependent on a charged battery, and most importantly reliable network coverage.
