“This pandemic that we’re facing is a challenge and it’s going to hurt a lot of us. It’s going to damage a lot of our weakest: the elderly, those who have immune deficiency problems or illnesses…We have to isolate ourselves, we have to follow the health guidelines that we know are so important to move past this.” – George Bentley
He then moves on to make the following suggestions:
- Reach out to someone close to you
- Self-quarantine with your family members (especially those that are elderly or isolated)
- Use technology to check in with loved ones and friends to connect if social distancing
George Bentley reminds us that we’re not in this alone. If we come together and support one another, we can not only reduce the number of new cases, but we can continue to live the long, happy, and independent life that so many of George’s loved ones have achieved into their 100s.
