In these ever-changing times, it is common to experience feelings of stress, anxiety, and grief. We may be feeling overwhelmed by the current state of our world, the impact of the pandemic on our loved ones and local community, or adapting to changes and challenges within our daily lives. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reminds us that everyone reacts differently to stressful situations and there is no right or wrong way to act or feel during this uncertain time.
As we continue social distancing, this may mean that we are exceedingly isolated from our family, friends, faith-based community, tangible work environment, and our community at large. Such isolation can certainly lead to feelings of loneliness and depression as we navigate this new normal of COVID-19. For this reason, it is important to ensure that we are taking care of our mental health, as best we can, during times of decreased social interaction. At Abramson Senior Care, we wish to recognize the challenges that we are all currently facing while providing supportive solutions to our clients and their families that can help ease feelings of high-stress, worry, and fear. We hope that you find peace of mind with these strategies for coping for both you and your loved ones:
If you are feeling intense feelings of depression, anxiety, or loneliness, consider seeking professional help through a virtual counselor or therapist. Online resources such as Talk Space and Better Help offer virtual counseling services and your insurance company can also help locate counseling resources.
As always, Abramson Senior Care is here to support you and your loved one; particularly at this challenging time. If you need assistance with locating supportive counseling resources, please call Abramson Care Advisors at 215.371.3400.
