Check in with a GrandparentMany older adults live alone and can’t get out often. This week, reach out to or visit a parent, grandparent or other family senior to see how they’re holding up.
The stress of the pandemic has carried its burden on all of us. Even as things are getting back to some normalcy, our way of life has likely changed or been challenged in some way or form. For nearly one-fourth of older adults who are already considered isolated or lonely, the long-term absence from people has only amplified the problem.
That’s why it’s important to check in and let them know you’re there. Just a short visit (if you’re vaccinated) or call can make their day – or even week – and give them the social comforts and human touch that they need and deserve.
After contacting your grandparent or loved one, let us know about it in the comments.
