AnotationThe proposed project deals with the current topic of the covid pandemic, which has significantly affected the lives of seniors. The aging of the population requires changes in the public discourse on government policy and community support for the elderly. Public policies may concern legal rights, the economic provision of health care or guarantees of access to housing and social services. Community support can be linked to policies and programs that enable civic engagement, provide further education or promote diversity. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about changes in people's lives. In an effort to alleviate the epidemic, several measures have been put in place to protect a particularly vulnerable group of the population, including the elderly. Isolation, the absence of much needed social contact have had and continue to have a negative effect on a person. The aim of the proposed project is to determine the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the quality of life of seniors.
