Recent decisions by provincial governments to ban visits to seniors residences and hospitals has put an enormous strain on family members and caregivers. The elderly are the most vulnerable with significantly higher mortality rates should they be infected with COVID-19. That being said, many family members and caregivers provide essential services on a daily basis.
What to do?
Communicate with management to ensure your loved one is being provided with proper care and support.
Try to communicate with your loved one through alternative means such as telephone, FaceTime or Skype. In many cases, your loved ones may not be set up with the proper technology to communicate virtually. Consider writing a letter. Grandchildren can also be a source of letters. Some families are even showing up at their loved one’s residence and organizing a visit where they can be seen through a ground floor window.
In your discussions, explain why you need to resort to these forms of communication and that it will be for a temporary basis only.
Note: most governments have made exceptions in cases where you have a loved one in palliative care.
Elderly Loved Ones at Home
Avoid physical visits whenever possible.
Many of the recommendations for communicating with a loved one in a residence equally apply to those living at home. Find alternative ways to communicate such as telephone or virtually such as FaceTime or Skype.
Provide comfort and assurance in your communication that this is only temporary but absolutely necessary for their own health and safety.
Have your loved ones be obsessive about hand washing and disinfecting surfaces. Stock up on food, water, medications and household items. Be sure they are eating well and taking their medications on time and in the right quantities. Keep their spirits up.
