It is clear now that COVID 19 impacts the most vulnerable. Our life without the love of our elders will be empty. The crisis has asked us to take special care of our elders. We need to be proactive in reaching out to them on a regular basis. It is also our responsibility to support them during this crisis in educating them. It could be as simple as making a phone call to them, sharing a joke or singing for them in order to take care of their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Here’s an opportunity for all children (and adults too), to submit ideas on how to keep your elders safe during COVID 19

Whenever elders are take out, they shall be accompanied by some other family members. They shall be wearing masks properly covering nose and mouth. They shall not touch any surface, staircase railings and shall not touch or hug any other person. They shall maintain 6 feet distance from others and shall maintain social distancing. If they touch any thing during buying anything, their hands shall be sanitised properly

Elders shall be kept engaged. They shall not be asked to sit aside but be allowed to listen the conversations going on in the family. If they wish, they shall meditate.

The elders who are living with some family members do get support and help. But there may be many who are living alone with no one to support. It becomes responsibility of neighborhood to keep checking about their welness during this corona period. Sometimes, moral support itself is a big support. These elders may be helped in getting the supply of essentials. It is necessary to follow social distancing norms and use of masks while visiting elders.

Many posts here suggest that elders shall be given vitamins, proteins, ayurvedic preparations to boost immunity. It is true that these boost immunity. But, it is to be remembered that every body has individual requirements. If something is given to boost immunity, sometimes, body may reject it. This may result in loose motions, increased BP or even cause damage to kidneys. So, it is better to use warm water and steam inhalation. These simple methods may take care of other monsoon related issues

We are discussing only how to protect elderly people from COVID-19. But, we have to consider another important point.
Corona effect has caused job losses and financial difficulties to many families. Such families may be having some elderly persons. So, as it is common, the needs of elderly people may be neglected as education of young or other family requirements may be more pressing. This aspect has to be considered by policymakers and a serious discussion shall be initiated.
