This book provides new insights into the challenges facing older people in Greater Manchester in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing on novel longitudinal research, the book analyses their lived experiences and those of organisations working to support them, shedding light on the isolating effects of social distancing. The book provides policy makers and communities with recommendations for how to ensure that the 'age-friendly' approaches meet the changing conditions of urban life for the older population.
