We will discuss why the COVID-19 virus is so lethal to frail older adults, and the devastating impact it is having in nursing homes around the country. Then, Dr. Wasserman will explore how this public health crisis contributes further to the isolation that older adults experience, and why person-centered care can make the difference in quality care delivery. Actually, getting to know the patient – and his or her goals and preferences – best defines this approach, and we will shine a light on how it can be practiced in our work with older adults.
