Never fear, the Internet is here! Practicing Social Distancing is tough, although it is important to try and stay home as much as possible, day-to-day essential tasks such as shopping for supplies, exercising, picking up medication, and connecting with others still need to be completed. Luckily there are countless online tools that can help you achieve all of these to-dos from home.
Online grocery shopping
While grocery stores are doing an incredible job minimizing the risk patrons, particularly Seniors, face while shopping, there are multiple online solutions that offer direct to your door service and eliminate any risk whatsoever. A few grocery delivery services are:
Communicating with family, friends, and colleagues
Whether it’s keeping up with work colleagues, other members of groups and societies, or family and friends, it is important for Seniors to stay connected, even when physically distant. Connecting with others can help with feelings of loneliness and isolation, improve morale, and help Seniors remain productive while staying safely at home. Some options to check out:
- Google Hangouts
- You can never beat a call on the old telephone!
Exercising is one of the best things you can do for both your body and mind, particularly in times of high stress. The World Health Organization recommends Seniors do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week. There are lots of creative tools to help you achieve your exercise goals while at home including:
- YouTube (some of our favorite search terms include: at-home yoga, home workout for Seniors, and Senior health workouts)
- Senior Exercises Online
Filling Prescriptions and Getting Medication
During the time of Coronavirus, it’s especially important to continue taking care of any existing medical conditions. As going to fill a prescription or pick up medication at a pharmacy could potentially put you at risk, particularly if you are a Senior, using delivery services that allow you to order medications online is a great way to stay at home and on top of your health.
