Take care of your Mental Health

This time of uncertainty can cause an increase in stress in all of us, especially among our seniors. 

It’s important that we don’t forget the importance of looking after our loved ones mental and emotional health too.  Make sure that they are actively taking breaks from the news and social media to focus on other things that bring them joy.  Suggest they adapt their daily routine to include socially distanced exercises, stretches, meditation, and hobbies.  Make sure they are maintaining a well-balanced diet that includes healthy meals.  Most importantly, make sure they are finding ways to stay connected with their loved ones.  Leverage technology like Skype, Zoom, and FaceTime to actually see your loved one’s faces and talk often.  

Are you a loved one that needs to keep a safe distance but wants to stay connected with a senior? Consider sending a handwritten letter, sending a small gift, or dropping by their house for a window visit that maintains a safe distance.
