Kallimos & Covid-19
We know that our Elders and people who live with frailty are most at risk for the virus. We have watched in horror at the devastation wrought upon Elders living in nursing homes and senior living communities. In an attempt to prevent even further massive deaths, the government has required these settings to quarantine. Only essential personnel are allowed to enter and interact with the neighbors of these communities. Inside the communities, neighbors are isolated into their rooms, although many of those rooms are not private rooms.
One can’t help but wonder what might be different if Kallimos existed today. How would Kallimos neighbors fare during a pandemic? How might things be different for them in this new way of living? And how might things be different for those elders who now find themselves isolated in their own homes?
