Check on seniors in your community and help them prepare for the long-term consequences of COVID-19
We need to make sure we recognize the vulnerability of seniors living with frailty. This also means making sure that measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 don’t negatively affect our seniors. Public health authorities have advised Canadians to engage in “social distancing” — staying away from crowded public spaces and avoiding unnecessary close contact with others. But social isolation is also dangerous to the health and well-being of older adults.
