The value of retirement living in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic

Keeping our elderly population safe: The value of retirement living in the face of COVID-19

During the first week of the UK lockdown to stem the advance of
COVID-19, many news outlets reported on Doreen, Dotty and Carol, three
ladies in their 70s moving in to one of their respective houses to
isolate together. They were doing so, they told inquisitive reporters
via Skype, because they couldn’t bear the idea of isolating alone and
so, to avoid getting lonely, they would live together, getting through
the weeks ahead on a shared love for cheap wine and box-sets of The
Crown!
