Finding ways to adress the need for close contact with people that don't understand the reason behind social distancing.
People with a mental disabillity or suffering from a brain disease (like Down syndrom, Alzheimer, Parkinson) have great dificulties understanding the COVID-19 situation and all the social distancing measures that come with it.
They need physical and social contact even more than other people, yet they don't understand why they are not allowed to and why their care takers and loved ones keep the distance. The lack of contact clearly effects their health situation.
Patients, caretakers and relatives struggle all struggle finding ways to deal with this situation within the rules and regulations.
The problem is occurring in nursing homes, but also with people being in their own homes.
