Self-management booklet for long COVID

SVUH has developed a self-management booklet for long COVID, crafted by a dedicated team of healthcare professionals with extensive experience in managing various acute and chronic health conditions. Drawing on their first-hand knowledge of caring for individuals grappling with the enduring effects of COVID-19, this handbook offers guidance rooted in the latest understanding of the condition—a knowledge base that continues to evolve. Our goal is to provide you and your family with valuable insights into the diverse challenges that may arise post COVID-19, along with practical strategies and tips to enhance your ability to navigate these hurdles both physically and mentally.

Recognising that recovery from COVID-19 is a deeply individual journey, we emphasise the importance of avoiding comparisons with others. Instead, we recommend focusing on your personal recovery by setting realistic targets and goals. This booklet is designed to complement, not replace, professional advice and support. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the content herein, we encourage you to engage with your healthcare team. Remember, this resource is intended to empower you on your path to recovery, and we sincerely hope you discover valuable support within its pages.
