The most vulnerable in society, including those receiving long-term care, have been disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus. In Europe alone, it is estimated that up to half of the total number of coronavirus deaths have occurred in long-term care facilities. In order to ensure that our older population is sufficiently protected while still receiving the care they need, will countries have to urgently rethink and adjust how long-term care is provided?
During this webinar, organized by the International Longevity Center (ILC), ILC Global Alliance speakers will discuss:
- what is being done to adequately protect those providing and receiving long-term care in their countries;
- how the practical day-to-day needs of older people receiving long-term care are being met;
- and what is being done to keep those in long-term care facilities connected with their families and friends.
