Age UK releases follow-up report on effect of COVID-19 on physical and mental health in older people
Age UK have launched a new report: ‘The impact of Covid-19 on older people’s physical and mental health: one year on’.
The report highlights the toll which the pandemic has had on older people. The research has also emphasised the unequal impact of the pandemic, with older people from lower social economic grades, older people from ethnic minorities, and older people with pre-existing health or care needs highlighting additional challenges which they have faced. Older carers have also been especially hard hit, with many reporting that they are at breaking point.
You can find the report here.
