We can shop or pick up medication for people who are uneasy about going out to shop for themselves.
Volunteers are ready to spend time on the phone if you want someone to talk to.
What you can do to help others, and yourself through these times:
Call an old friend and catch up.
Share your feelings with a friend, family member or Volunteer. Things are a bit different now, but this will pass. Be patient.
Do activities you usually enjoy.
Write a letter, send a card, let someone know you care.
Repot a plant or start seeds for your garden.
Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories and social media.
Do enjoyable activities and return to normal life.
Be aware that there may be rumors during a crisis, especially on social media.
If distress impacts activities of your daily life for several days or weeks, talk to a clergy member, counselor, or doctor.
Your well being is on the top of many of our lists. We care about you.
Be happy and healthy. -Patti
