Isolation and Wellness

27th March 2020

We are going through an unprecedented period in global history, Covid-19 is now widespread and growing.

The good news is we are all pulling together as a nation, something reminiscent of the war years.

We have all seen the figures, the older generation have been deemed to be at a higher risk. However, the science remains true, despite being older, the majority of older people still only experience mild to moderate symptoms.

We all need to take care and those of you that have been advised to self-isolate for 12 weeks, due to underlying conditions, can be extremely difficult. It can have a detrimental effect on your mental health.

You may be feeling depressed and your anxiety may increase.

There are ways to help alleviate this. There is also lots of support out there.

Video Calling

There is new research that states Video calling is equally as therapeutic as seeing a person in real life, it can aid self-belonging, talking about your concerns, company, reassuring loved ones and seeing your grandchildren.

If you have a newer mobile phone, then you can quite easily do this, even if you don’t, you still might be abled to access this. Ask someone to talk you through it. If you receive care from our carers, they will happily set this up for you. This will not only give you some company but can provide lots of reassurance to your family members.

The Government has requested nearly a million volunteers are recruited to help support you. Many many people have already signed up to this which is brilliant. Soon you will be able to access this. They will be able to support you with your shopping and collecting medication. They will also provide a friendly voice on the phone for you chat too when you want.

This is an invaluable service for many of you. For our clients, Lotus Home Care carers can give you more information on this closer to the time.

Lotus Home Care staff are trained to identify any issues our clients are experiencing, they are incredibly caring and supportive so will always sign post you to the best help available if unable to help themselves. So please be reassured you are in the safest of hands.
