Age Concern Wellington Region – 2022 Survey of Seniors
Since the reporting of New Zealand’s first Covid-19 case on February 28, 2020, Covid-19 has forced New Zealanders to change the way they live. For many seniors, this disruption to normal life has been exhausting and stressful.
When the Omicron wave began to impact New Zealand in early 2022, we heard stories of many seniors staying home and isolating. We also heard of some seniors still keen to get out and about. We wanted to discover more about what was happening for seniors as large numbers of the population began to be impacted by Omicron. This survey represents a snapshot of the wellbeing of seniors in early March 2022.
