Staying Connected to Senior Loved Ones
Visitation restrictions have relaxed a good amount, but plenty of people still find in-person visits to senior living communities tricky. Maybe it’s difficult to schedule a time or simply disconcerting to have to maintain social distancing and sanitize everything. The pandemic has made staying connected to senior loved ones difficult. Fortunately, there are plenty of other ways to keep in touch. Why not take advantage of these methods in 2021? Here are just a few ideas:
- Phone calls
- Video calls
- Letter writing
- Care packages
Finding Quality Care
Maybe one of your new year goals is to give your aging family members the best care and living conditions you can. The best way to do this is to find a community of their peers, designed to cater to their specific needs, ready to provide a safe and comfortable environment. Trying to shoulder the entire burden yourself places a great deal of stress on you, and you likely can’t provide everything your loved ones need. Let the experts do the heavy lifting. Meanwhile, you can enjoy visiting your elderly loved ones and seeing them thrive in an environment made with them in mind.
Keeping Loved Ones Safe & Healthy
Unfortunately, the pandemic still isn’t over. While we’ve made progress toward getting things under control, we still have a long way to go. You can do your part by making sure your family stays safe and healthy. This is particularly true for families with high-risk or elderly members. Keep up your new handwashing habits, wear a mask, keep socially distancing, and take extreme care not to pass the virus to senior loved ones during visits. Your caution could save someone’s life.
The upcoming year is uncertain. But as we move into the future, we can resolve to make 2021 a much better year than 2020. That should be the biggest resolution on your list of new year goals.
