Join the National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation for a webinar about the challenges older adults face during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the danger COVID-19 poses to older adults and people living in long-term care facilities has been of great concern. It is also necessary to address the pandemic’s mental health impact on older adults, particularly loneliness and isolation. Speakers will discuss an overview of COVID-19’s challenges to long-term care and the future implications for nursing homes, vaccination and vaccine distribution challenges for older adults, and a health plan’s efforts to address pandemic isolation and loneliness.
