New publication on pilot study "Health and Support in Times of Corona"

The health risks, social as well as mental consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are unequally distributed across the population. A pilot study at TU Dortmund University examined in early summer 2020 changes in support and well-being among older people against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the results of this study, an article has just been published Open Access in “Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie":
