Advice for Vulnerable Groups Instructed to Self-Isolate

Posted on April 16th, 2020

If you have received notification from the NHS advising that you may be at risk of severe illness from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) then it is important that you follow the advice in the letter.

 

You will need to stay at home for the next 12 weeks and avoid face-to-face contact with other people unless it is absolutely necessary. This will be quite a challenge for most people as isolation and loneliness can have a negative impact on mental health.

 

You can help maintain good mental health by keeping in regular telephone or online contact with your friends and family. Let them know how you would like to stay in touch and build your conversation time with them into your daily routine. Make sure to talk to them about how you are feeling and don’t be afraid to ask them for help when you need it.

 

Local community groups, such as church groups, activity groups or self-help groups, can also be a great source of advice and assistance. If you can keep in contact with your local community groups by phone or internet (or join a new online group if you don’t already belong to one) make sure you do so.

 

Finally, think of the other isolated people who might benefit from your support. If you can make a friendly phone call every now and then it might make all the difference to someone who has few opportunities to talk to others. Remember, it is important that you completely avoid physical contact with other people, but that you use phone and internet to remain as connected as you can.
