Social Distancing Saves Seniors

Recent News | March 24, 2020

Social distancing is one simple, yet important, thing we can do to fight COVID-19. Restricting close contact with others will help keep the virus at bay. The CDC recommendation is to maintain 6 feet – two arm’s length – away from others. It is essential for our seniors, the most vulnerable population to practice social distancing. Here are several ways to protect yourself:

  1. Limit your time in public – Many states are limiting when residents are allowed to go out in public, but for those times that you must go out, make sure it’s a need. For seniors, if you are able, ask a relative to run the essential errands for you and to leave the items on the porch.
  2. Go to the grocery store during set senior hours – To lessen the number of people, many grocery stores have implemented special shopping times for our seniors. Call your local store to find out what they’ve designated for your community.
  3. Order in, ask them to leave it on the doorstep – Shopping services, meal kits, and local restaurants are all offering delivery. Instead of going out, ask them to bring it to you.
  4. Cancel non-essential doctor’s visits or use Telehealth options – If you have an appointment that can wait, reschedule it or explore telehealth options. Many physicians and hospitals are overrun with COVID-19 cases. Instead of going out, try to find a better time.

These simple tips help seniors protect themselves during this time of uncertainty. If your loved one is having a hard time, remind them of how they can keep themselves safe and healthy.
