The Discovery COVID-19 Podcast  –  8 Apr 2020  

Psychiatrist Specialist : Dr Ryan Fuller 

Just because an elderly person isn’t asking for help, doesn’t mean that they are coping. How can we ensure that our elderly loved ones maintain their physical and mental wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic? What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in elderly people and why are the elderly at risk of severe illness if they contract COVID-19? How will families know when to seek out emergency medical care for an elderly person? What sort of daily routine will support the elderly through every day? How can technology and apps help to maintain their cognitive health and also stay in contact with loved ones?

Psychiatrist Dr Ryan Fuller, founder of the MemoryCare healthcare practice, and who specialises in old age psychiatry, shares excellent advice on all of this and more.
