Isolation #elderly #covid19 #atozchallenge


 

Emptiness

both directions

hold the rails

don’t look down

When life spins a little out of control, we want some activity to keep us steady.

Isolation aka “Stay at Home” makes it even harder to keep steady.

The Elderly often have routines to keep them engaged (and from getting frustrated). It’s hard for the elderly because there are so few things they do in their day. As much as we could go to several stores, I don’t feel that taking my 90 year old client or my 85 year old client to the grocery store at the moment would be advisable.

Guess that’s where the word “new normal” came from. We must find new activities to fill in the gaps so our elderly loved ones don’t feel “penned in.”

So while we are isolated, we need to remember this is a good thing. We isolate in hospital to keep the sickness in the room away from the healthy. We isolate our elderly to keep them away from a killer disease.

 

How are you self isolating? If you are caring for elderly family, how are you keeping their routine going?

For those of you caring for loved ones – thank you. You are the stability you family needs right now!!!

 

As I’m posting this, one of our kids is in the hospital. She needs to be in the hospital for a severe health problem  (not Covid.) I’m glad this hospital has an isolated ICU for healthy people and ICU for Covid patients. Still worried as she cant have any visitors. I dont think we can even send cards and talking is difficult.

 

Hope you are enjoying the A to Z challenge thanks for your visit.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Isolation is hardest for the children, so scary not to be able to see familiar faces around during an illness. Hope the little one recovers soon and gets back home.

  2. Wishing all the best for your daughter. I know it’s hard on family, too.
    My partner is calling his 83-year-old mother every day and it seems to be the highlight of the day.
