During these difficult times, there are several things families can do to keep their elderly safe. Here are a few issues to keep in mind:

  • Keep the elderly at home at all times. Let others buy them food and run errands.

  • Be more vigilant of your elderly’s condition and alert their doctor right away if their condition changes, especially if you see the telltale signs of coronavirus: fever, persistent cough, and shortness of breath.

  • No matter how hard it is, keep family members, friends and visitors away, or at least practise social distancing, hence staying 1.8 meters (6 feet) distance from them.

  • Consider using telemedicine as the first option if the elderly person’s condition changes. In Malaysia, Doc2Us and TELLME, and several others, offer such services.

  • Wipe down surfaces periodically using a safe disinfectant.

  • Make sure your elderly loved ones continue to stay active by exercising to the extent possible.

  • Continue to ensure your elderly loved ones eat well.

  • Ensure they are still taking their medications. Even see if they can get an extra supply, just to be sure if this pandemic lasts a while, and supplies tighten up.
