Seniors’ Health and Well-being during COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in Alberta, this survey is focused on senior citizens, a group especially affected by the pandemic.

In addition to the risks the coronavirus presents to seniors’ physical health, the protective measures of physical distancing and isolation can take a toll on emotional and mental well-being, with many seniors already at increased risk of loneliness and feelings of depression.

This survey should take less than three minutes to complete.
