COVID-19 has made the elderly more lonely

Mahdi Naeim

Loneliness is a major risk factor for the elderly and can double their problems. When the COVID-19 came, the condition of the elderly became more difficult. The news that the elderly were more exposed to severe COVID-19 than others made the elderly more lonely. The research method is library type which was done during two months by using valid scientific sources and books. According to the findings of the study, we believe that focusing on education, and reminding people of the necessary do’s and don’ts of illness, modifying their diet, emphasizing masking, and even familiarizing the elderly with social media and virtual activities will prevent them from loneliness.
