The effect of COVID-19 in residential and nursing homes

Professor Chris Phillipson from MICRA has authored a blog on coronavirus and the effects of the crisis in residential and nursing homes.

Can society be trusted to run care homes? An age-old question but one which has come back with a vengeance with the emerging catastrophe caused by COVID-19.

In the new blog, Chris Phillipson, Professor of Sociology and Gerontology at The University of Manchester, asks powerful questions relating to the current coronavirus health crisis and how this has unfolded in residential and nursing homes.

The British Society of Gerontology has published the blog and you can read it in full here.
