This has been a difficult year for us all. Although the pandemic has become a part of our everyday lives, it’s important to take the time to appreciate our successes, despite the challenges.
From grandchildren who are now connecting remotely with their older loved ones more than they ever did in-person prior to the pandemic, to aging parents who are now thriving at home with their adult children after the decision was made to bring them home from a facility, there is good news to share.
- Are you part of a new multigenerational family living situation?
- Have you adopted a pet for companionship?
- Has a volunteer, community member, or professional caregiver helped you adjust to lockdowns in some way?
- Have you learned a new skill or started a new hobby since lockdown began?
You should be proud of yourself for any degree of victory that you have accomplished during these times, it wasn’t easy!
