Need for TOUCH
by Harry Urban on 11 Mar 2020
I often speak of the fear of the unknown concerning dementia, but it does not compare with the fear of the coronavirus. …
… we are being told not to have any physical contacts with the people we love,
no holding hands or touching someone’s cheek to give them comfort.
Meetings are discouraged to discuss our fears
and total isolation is encouraged.
Will we be able to dismiss the lessons we are learning
after the coronavirus fears calm … and ((when)) we can go to the store and buy a roll of toilet paper or hand sanitizer again.
The fears are real, but it is up to you how to handle them.
Don’t forget about us living with dementia after the coronavirus diminishes …
