Abstract

Maria Evandrou, Jane Falkingham, Min Qin and Athina Vlachantoni highlight the experiences of older people who did not quality for formal home care visits during the lockdown. They find that while many did receive assistance with activities such as shopping (and some received more such help than previously), a small group were at risk of not having the support they needed, something which may be repeated in future lockdowns.
