Supporting social integration and reintegration of older people with mental illness post-COVID 19
The COVID-19 situation has necessarily resulted in lockdowns and isolation to ensure the broader safety of the community. Unfortunately, one of the side effects has meant that older adults who might normally be quite engaged in the community and with families have found themselves essentially on their own. In addition, the stress of COVID-19 in and of itself has meant that older adults have made decisions about not going out of the home, even for key medical support, due to fear of the virus. This presentation will highlight some of the key outcomes of such isolation (and associatedly loneliness), as well as offering insights as to “the way out”, particularly for those older adults who now find themselves experiencing anxieties that they had not before.
