Abstract

COVID-19 threatens the world by potentially harming individuals, families, and civilizations in the same way that negative changes arise in all epidemics. Several personal changes such as regulation of emotions (anxiety, depression, aggression), internal pressure about changes in social norms and rules, and social isolation make the COVID-19 more complicated. Older adults have been negatively affected by COVID-19. What is occurring is causing anxiety and panic among older individuals in a world where life is reframed with "#stay at home." Individual changes, social isolation practices, and mental health outcomes for older individuals are all discussed in the framework of COVID-19. Previous study findings are reviewed in the context of preventative initiatives for older people.

The National and Applied Gerontology Association (NASAG) is a leading non-profit organization in Turkey that promotes healthy and productive aging via evidence-based research. The utilization of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in gerontology is crucial in integrating research, practice, and policy, given the need for evidence-based programming to improve the quality of life in old age. As an advocate for social action for older people, the NASAG is particularly concerned that public policies are strongly and genuinely focused on supporting and protecting the most vulnerable, marginalized, or disadvantaged older people.
