Tips to stay in touch

When you have a loved one who is socially isolated, whether they are in assisted living or in their own home, it can be difficult to find ways to connect without being able to physically interact. 

To help combat this isolation, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Ohio Health Care Association have created a list of tips for caregivers. 

Tips include steps you should take before having a home health professional come to your family member’s home, along with guidelines and options to connect while staying safe. For example, you can do video conferencing and phone calls, send photos and cards, share music, or buy them a bird feeder to place outside their window. Little gestures like this go a long way in keeping your relationships strong.
