CAREGIVING DURING COVID-19

 

Dear Caregivers and Friends,

          My prayers are with you and your loved one. Let us do our part to flatten the covid-19 curve by adhering to stay-at-home policies and social distancing practices. Try to maintain a routine with your loved one and limit news time to essential coverage. Do something fun or funny everyday. Try to remain positive and hopeful. Reach out to community resources if you need help or are overwhelmed. The Alzheimer’s Association Helpline is available 24/7 at  800.272.3900.

I hope this information will help you or someone you know.

 

         I pray that you and your families are doing well. It is difficult to comprehend not being able to visit a loved one in a senior facility. So I pray to God for his strength and covering for us all.

 

Dear Caregivers and Friends,

 

            My prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Please remain positive and hopeful. Here is information that can help you as a caregiver.
