Well-being, Interventions & Support during Epidemics

(WISE) Study

We would like to learn how the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has affected the lives of older people, and how they are dealing with the changes it has brought.

This will help us to understand the kind of support that people would find helpful, and also to share people's insights and experiences with others in similar situations now or in the future.
