Abstract

COVID-19 has been a changing force in many people’s lives since it began spreading in March 2020. One group that has been hit hard by the virus is the elderly. The difficulties this group is facing are contributing to negative mental health outcomes. For this reason, action must be taken. This thesis explored some pertinent areas of research regarding elders and COVID-19. These areas included age discrimination, social isolation, and death anxiety. A scientifically based treatment plan for the elderly during COVID-19 and similar pandemics was also proposed.
