COVID-19 has stressed the healthcare system in ways our society has not seen before. Less visibly, elderly patients and their caregivers have been stressed as well, both by the virus and by the public health measures required to slow its spread. After months of isolating, patients with dementia and their caregivers are worried about reentering a society with different rules and expectations. Although an extremely complex topic, the re-entry of individuals with cognitive impairment back into society is critical for both the wellbeing of the person as well as the caregiver. Successful re-entry into society will vary based on a person's interests and baseline cognition, however, the ability to participate in activities and events that previously provided joy and stimulation is the first step. This paper, written by practicing geriatricians and palliative clinicians, offers some concrete counseling strategies and tips for caregivers to help navigate re-entry into society with their loved ones.
