Don’t let’s forget that older people continue to live with multiple health conditions that impact on their ability and quality of life, with or without coronavirus.
All the difficulties within our health and social care systems remain but with the added pressures of this far reaching infection.
Older people are more vulnerable than ever (of both social isolation and the potentially serious consequences of infection), huge demands will be made on our NHS staff and there will be an inevitable knock on effect on Adult Social Care Services in the community.
Essentially families will still need help navigating the NHS and Adult Social Care Services, finding the right care solutions and accessing all available financial support.
If you are supporting an older person professionally or personally, this is the time to take individually tailored and flexibly delivered, independent care advice.
Do get in touch on 07415387129. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you.
