To all of you who are caregivers or family members of neurologically-impaired loved ones, this period of time due to COVID-19 has been particularly very exhausting, full of anxiety, frustrating, and difficult keeping our loved ones so fully isolated, protected from possible contraction of the virus. It has been making our health needs more difficult to maintain and the jobs of our health workers more fragile in how they can assist us.
We, who are the caregivers to our neurologically-impaired loved ones of dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, ALS, stroke, PDP, and many more, are being pulled so much harder with their daily care. Many of the organizations and health services who were giving therapy, support, and information are closed or limited in personnel to assist us. Even groups such as ours had to stop monthly meetings due to a total lock down of both homeowner facilities and meeting rooms.
The clubhouses are beginning to open and hopefully we will be allowed to return to our monthly meetings in the fall. We are hoping to resume by Friday, Oct. 16, at the Preserve from 10 a.m. to noon. As soon as we get the okay, the community will be notified. We are really looking forward to the speakers and great discussions.
Please feel free to reach out to either myself, Esta Goldstein, or Marilyn Sellers if you have any needs, questions, or just want to talk.
