Caring for our loved ones during COVID19

Caring for our loved ones during COVID-19 can be a challenging and overwhelming task, particularly for those struggling with addiction. The stress and uncertainty of the pandemic can exacerbate existing mental health issues and increase the risk of relapse. However, it’s important to remember that we are not alone and there are resources available to support us and our loved ones during this difficult time.

One of the most important things we can do to support our loved ones during COVID-19 is to stay informed about the latest developments and guidelines related to the virus. This includes following the advice of public health officials, practicing good hygiene, and staying up-to-date on the latest recommendations for preventing the spread of the virus.

Stay informed with the latest updates

It’s also important to prioritize the mental health and well-being of our loved ones during this time. This may include setting aside time for self-care, engaging in activities that promote relaxation and stress management, and seeking out professional support if needed. For those struggling with addiction, it’s especially important to have a plan in place to prevent relapse and to have access to supportive resources such as online recovery meetings or virtual therapy sessions.

It’s also essential to remain connected with our loved ones, even if we can’t be physically present. This may involve using video or phone calls to stay in touch, or finding other creative ways to stay connected and offer support.

Remember that we are not alone

Caring for our loved ones during COVID-19 can be challenging, but it’s important to remember that we are not alone and that there are resources available to support us. By staying informed, prioritizing mental health, and staying connected, we can help our loved ones navigate these difficult times and find hope and healing in the midst of the pandemic.


Some additional ideas

  1. Offer practical support: This may include running errands, providing transportation to medical appointments, or helping with household tasks.

  2. Be a good listener: It’s important to create a safe and supportive space where our loved ones can share their thoughts and feelings without judgment.

  3. Encourage healthy habits: This may include reminding our loved ones to eat well, get enough sleep, and exercise regularly.

  4. Set boundaries: It’s important to respect the boundaries of our loved ones and to give them the space they need to manage their own recovery and self-care.

  5. Seek professional help: If our loved ones are struggling with addiction or mental health issues, it may be helpful to connect them with a professional therapist or counselor.


Remember, it’s okay to seek help and support for ourselves as well. Caring for our loved ones during COVID-19 can be emotionally and physically draining, and it’s important to prioritize our own self-care in order to be able to support our loved ones effectively.
