Grief during social isolation
On Monday 23 March, the UK government instructed us all to go into ‘lockdown’. As a result, most of us have had to remain at home with our family, friends or whoever we usually live with. Personal visits from home to home have not been allowed. This has proven to be very hard –with regular visits to close relatives, getting together with partners or friends forbidden, apart from via social media and Apps. Many people who already lived alone before the Coronavirus pandemic, now face an unknown amount of time with no physical or social contact.
Losing somebody at this time, whether that is through Coronavirus or something else, can feel even more difficult and traumatic than usual. We have prepared some information to help you if you or someone you know is experiencing grief..
