The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed every part of our society and brought to light inequalities and risk factors that must be addressed as we move forward together. Foremost on the mind of Adult Advocacy Centers consultant Dr. Diana Spore has been the mental health and well-being of seniors with disabilities, who have been isolated both in the community and in care facilities.

The paper also includes a helpful resource guide.
