New video supports to help families cope with COVID-19

‘Five More Ways Over Five Days’ is the second series of videos which Cork Kerry Community Healthcare is releasing this week to help individuals and their families cope with the impact of COVID-19.

Each day, a new video will be issued where Daniel Flynn, Principal Psychology Manager, interviews colleagues who will share their advice and expertise on how to support different people in families and communities at this time.

“As we continue to follow national public health guidance we are aware that the measures are having a significant psychological impact on all parts of society,” Daniel said.

“It can be particularly challenging for young people who are isolated from school friends and normal routines, and equally challenging for the other end of the age spectrum with older persons having to cocoon. Those in between have the worry of how to be both a good and effective parent and a supportive son or daughter to an older person that you cannot physically have contact with. It is an incredibly strange and stressful time for all, and even more so for families whose loved one has an intellectual disability which impacts their ability to fully understand or comply with the guidelines we need to follow to stay safe and well.”

Over the next five days, short daily videos online will help people in responding more effectively with psychological impact, he added.

“The hope is that at the end of the week people will build on their skills from the first series but this time considering the needs of others in their environments.”

Key populations to understand and support are:

Day 1: Monday- Young children under aged 12

Day 2: Tuesday – Teenagers

Day 3: Wednesday – People with an Intellectual Disability

Day 4: Thursday – Older persons cocooning

Day 5: Friday – Ourselves with more mindfulness skills to practice

The links to each video will be issued on social media each day starting today, today (Monday) and can be watched on YouTube – just search for Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, or see @CorkKerryCH on Twitter.

There are also resource sheets with additional skills and tips available on the HSE website at www.hse.ie that you can view online or download.

It was their first time entering Fleadh Cheoil Chiarraí but Gaelscoil Faithleann pupils proved they’ve got talent as they made it to the next stage of the competition.

Muinteoir Treasa Uí Scannláin and Muinteoir Lisa Ni Iarlaithe prepared the children over the last two months on Thursday evenings after school.

For the competition 22 kids were entered in the Under 11 and 13 categories in the Comhra Gaeilge competition in Tralee.

Three of the Under 11s and three of the school’s Under 13s are now going forward to represent Chiarraí the Fleadh Cheoil na Mumhan in Newcastle West on July 15.

“The standard was very high and it was our first time entering this competition. All of the children were representing Cill Airne Comhaltas,” Lisa said.
