The COVID-19 crisis has rapidly changed society. Millions of people across the UK are staying home except for essential shopping trips and daily exercise, while the most vulnerable are not even leaving the house. These measures are vital for protecting society’s most vulnerable and the NHS but it is a worrying and challenging time for those caring for loved ones with dementia.
It is vital that we look after both the mental and physical wellbeing of those we care for while we are confined to our homes. And Guideposts is helping you do that. They have rounded up an A to Z of dementia friendly activities that you can access from home, as well as listing places you can turn to for support.
Don’t forget you can call our dedicated dementia support line on 01865 410 210 (9 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday) if you have any questions, queries or need some support.
