Experiencing isolation and loneliness is common for the elderly. Feeling detached from other people is especially difficult during this time of social distancing. As happens when we are alone, thoughts may spiral downward, leaving us to ruminate on negative things about ourselves, others, and the world in general. Providing support to those isolated can be easily administered by making a list of their positive traits and qualities in your virtual time together. Remind them of their wonderful characteristics you are aware of and share stories of how they affect the world positively. Make a list to help remind yourself of all the wonderful things you possess. Coach your loved one to keep the list handy for a simple reminder of what they bring to the table. Encouraging generations that are unfamiliar with tooting their own horn is… freeing!!!
