- Are you feeling tearful or out of sorts?
- Is lack of physical contact saddening you?
- Do you require some food shopping or an errand run because you are out of action?
- Or do you just need some advice
We are being forced to change our daily routines and face up to some new realities in our lives. The best we can do is to adapt to these lifestyle changes which are probably here to stay with us for a while. Good advice being proffered is to make new routines an essential part of our changed days and nights- not forgetting to make time for the things we enjoy doing every day.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our health workers, in their many guises, for the ceaseless love and care they provide to our community.
