The Impact of Social Isolation on Nursing Home Residents During COVID-1‪9‬ Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care

    • Education

In March of 2020, as COVID-19 was spreading through nursing homes at alarming rates, nursing home doors were closed to outside visitors, keeping out families, friends and other members of the community. At the same time, most residents were required to stay in their rooms, doors often shut, having little contact with others. A survey of nursing home residents by Altarum provides a look at the impact of these restrictions on those living in the facilities, and the toll it has taken on their physical and emotional health. This discussion features Anne Montgomery and Sarah Slocum, Co-Directors of Eldercare Improvement at Altarum.
