Impact of The Covid-19 Epidemic On The Rights of Older Adults
The aim of the paper is to present the plight of older people at the time of the measures and restrictions to prevent the spread of Covido-19 infection, drawing attention to the importance of exercising rights and highlighting the violation of the social interaction of older adults in their living environment. Research results will be presented on how the rights to dignity and autonomy, social and social and cognitive rights, and actuarial and the sensual rights, safety, health and status rights of older adults in various forms in the mood of adult living have been exercised or violated. Especially since we have been (faced) with a lack of properly trained staff, which is due to inadequate and lack of staffing standards in the care of older adults and to all the lack of occupations in the field of care for the older adults and ignorance of the emergence of new-e.g. social gerontologist in the light of the social isolation of older adults. The authors conclude their contribution with those positive solutions and opportunities that we need to realize immediately in Slovenian postmodern society in order to help the older adults and thus the whole society.
