Pandemic fatigue can affect many aspects of day to day life for senior citizens. There is a lot of stress associated with Covid and the ways that it can be spread. Older adults are more at risk of becoming infected and suffering the most severe symptoms, which has lead to caregivers, family, and friends taking additional steps to keep them safe. These safety measures can provide peace of mind, but sometimes they are not enough to completely overcome pandemic fears.
