The impact of Covid-19 on older people and, in particular, on those who need care is frightening. Much has been written about the situation in care homes and the fact that older people are bearing the brunt of the infection.
Not wishing to add to ill-informed speculation, OLM will not be making comment, other to wish all readers and their families all the very best and to take care. We have removed some of our pages, since it is impossible to say at the moment which options are 'safe'. But we have left others visible, which deal in general advice.
Obviously, at this time, everyone needs to take particular account of infection in homes before making any decision about residence and to think of their older relatives and neighbours, who are especially vulnerable.
OLM will return once the crisis has subsided.
23 September 2020 - We have been criticised for not giving advice or information at this critical time and OLM can only apologise but reiterate that we do not wish to contribute to ill-informed speculation. This is a journalistic website and we are not medically or scientifically qualified.
