An increasing number of people are in isolation because of potential exposure or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19.
When caring for loved ones during periods of illness and isolation, it’s important to maintain a sense of routine and connection with others, throughout the day, from regular meal times to bedtimes. Caregivers shouldn’t forget about their own needs during a period of isolation.
Debbie will address people’s personal concerns and challenges, while recommending forms of self-care that will go a long way to ensuring comfort and wellbeing during this difficult time.
