Pandemic Making Mild Dementia Worse

Attempting to keep my parents at home with only grocery runs and necessities. What are your thoughts on isolation and making dementia and confusion worse? We are trying to do the right thing to at least stagger getting the virus if one of us gets it.

The isolation will make things worse. I work LTC with no cases. But they have not seen family in months and their daily routine is limited. We have lost quite a few to FTT. Sad to see. For some the isolation is not worth it. But I understand why.
