Project Summary

We will collect baseline and follow-up qualitative data from older adults, people with dementia, and family carers, and hold focus groups with care professionals, to explore the long-term impact of COVID-19 public health measures on their mental health. We will also hold coproduction workshops in each country to develop strategies to address mental health and well-being in each country and develop an external funding application. We will then compare how public health measures are affecting these vulnerable groups across the three different LMICs, to generate better understanding on how to support their mental health better during this ongoing pandemic.

Outputs / Expected Outputs

Papers exploring the long-term psychological impacts of COVID-19 public health measures on older adults, and how these effects vary across different LMICs.
