COVID-19 and your health
Well, what a year so far...
Like you, I have never heard or visually seen a word so much in such a short space of time. We haven’t been able to turn on the television, scroll through our social media feeds, listen to the radio or even just walk down the street or into the local supermarket without hearing or seeing the word CORONAVIRUS and let’s be honest, it’s been a scary and an unsettling time.
This has been felt throughout the world and has affected many, many people, either directly or indirectly and will continue to do so for some time to come. It has meant that our world and how we live within it has changed dramatically. How we interact with each other and communicate has had to adapt to an ever-changing environment which has meant many peoples jobs have become remote, schools have closed and how we engage with all sectors has become detached and at times very isolate.
We have proven that there are so many things we can do and accomplish when faced with these challenges and we at Lifelong Health have spent a vast amount of time adjusting to these changes. As a nurse, my practice has had to evolve to take all necessary safety precautions to provide care for people and our role to provide health and wellbeing teaching/advice to such varied, diverse populations within workplaces, schools, community hubs etc has also progressed and like so many of you, the virtual world has become our new platform that is always developing and we continue to progress to be able to provide our services.
HEALTH and MENTAL WELLBEING could not be more important at this time and we at Lifelong continue to make that our upmost priority. This website has been updated with the latest Government evidence and guidance in Wales in relation to COVID and what we know about this virus. There are many ways in which we can help protect ourselves, promote our good health and positive mental wellbeing and our services will be able to support you through this.
