(NOTE)Elderlink takes every patient’s life and health seriously. To us, you are not a number or a name; you are our client and responsibility. Finding you a senior living facility is the easy part. More critical, finding you a facility that follows every government required COVID 19 rule, plus continuously test other tenants for fever, coughing, or additional symptoms of this hideous disease regularly is a must for you to live there. We will hold your hand to ensure your next living location meets these and all other safety factors.
A few years ago, being hospitable was seen as a desirable habit. But the story is no longer the same as you read this post. We are now scared of welcoming visitors into our homes, visiting public places, accepting gifts from anyone, or visiting the sick in the hospital.
Thriving is an essential aspect of living. In any situation we find ourselves, the first thing we should seek is how to succeed in staying healthy, only then can we survive. It’s no longer news that senior citizens are facing severe challenges globally as a result of the pandemic. How can the elderly thrive amidst such circumstances?
Thriving is paramount to your mental and physical health. It’s also a sign of independence. But in any society, the elderly cannot thrive without help from others. How can they seek help and remain safe?
Elderlink has suggestions for senior family members who still live on their own. If you are struggling to cope with the effect of the pandemic, learn lessons from those who are already thriving. Seniors who struggle for survival during these critical times should do the following:
- Live in a secure environment
The elderly are encouraged to live a secure environment that supports healthy aging. Family members should make their homes as safe as possible for their elderly parents. When children provide the needed care for their parents, they can help them feel secure and alleviate the feeling of stress.
Seniors who live alone due to divorce or losing a spouse can leverage social engagement, senior-friendly exercises, and volunteer their service to help combat the feeling of loneliness and depression.
- Get support
The significance of getting support at the right time cannot be overemphasized. In the United States, different medical communities offer assistance to seniors during the coronavirus pandemic. Also, our state provides access to free consultations, incentives, and moral support to seniors, which can help them deal with stress.
Many religious and Non-for-profit organizations have availed themselves to give the elderly moral and financial aid during the lockdown and even after.
How assisted living communities are helping
The “no visiting” rule established by assisted living communities across the country has made it difficult for seniors to connect with their families during the pandemic. But this is for their good too as it has provided a safe environment for seniors to thrive. Such stringent health protocols will help to protect them and make them less vulnerable to the virus.
If you abide by the rules set by your community and government, then learn from others who are successfully coping with the pandemic, you will be able to find the inner peace you seek and stay safe as possible during these unprecedented times.
