Managing the 14 day isolation
Being in isolation can be stressful and boring. Suggestions include:
• Keep in touch with family members, friends and CRPS community members via telephone, email or social media.
• Learn about coronavirus and talk with others.
• Reassure young children using age-appropriate language.
• Where possible, keep up normal daily routines, such as eating and exercise.
• Arrange to work from home.
• Ask your child’s school to supply assignments or homework by post or email.
• Do things that help you relax and use isolation as an opportunity to do activities you don’t usually have time for.
If you’re experiencing stress, you may like to talk to someone at Lifeline or Headspace.
Lifeline is a national charity open to all Australians in personal crisis. They have 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.
Headspace is the national youth mental health foundation. They can help young people who are going through a tough time.
