Staff and volunteers at L2L are aware of the impact that Covid-19 has had on our clients from talking with them particularly about the prolonged isolation and the effects this has had on emotional well-being as well as the fear of the “unknown”.
The Coronavirus pandemic presents a threat to the health, lives, rights and well-being of older persons.
The main message from Elder Abuse Awareness week this year is that it is okay to ask for help and not keep the issue hidden.
