Protecting the Health of our Seniors During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Presenters: Dr. Joanie Sims-Gould, UBC Faculty of Medicine; Dr. Roger Wong, UBC Division of Geriatric Medicine, and Dr. Chris Wyatt, UBC Geriatric Dentistry Program
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, seniors have been identified as one of the groups most vulnerable to the virus. In response, special care has been taken to protect them from potential infection. Society-wide measures, including widespread physical distancing and instituting “seniors’ hours” in grocery stores, have been designed, in large part, to protect our elders. In long-term care facilities, a number of which have experienced outbreaks, policies have been implemented limiting contact between residents and staff as well as restricting outside visitors. Still, there are many who question whether we are doing enough to protect our seniors. Others speculate about what effects this isolation and disruption of routines is having on the overall physical and mental health of our seniors. Hear from UBC experts as they address these issues and answer viewer questions.
