Staying in touch can help with anxiety for elderly

Dealing with the fears surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic can make people, especially the elderly, more anxious.  During these unprecedented times, Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White of Sturgeon Bay says it is difficult to tell people to stay calm when they have concerns about their health and safety.  He says worrying is wasted mental energy and suggests using a coping mechanism.

People can use creative technologies, like video communications, to keep at least emotionally engaged with loved ones during physical isolation, according to Dr. White.
