Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the physical, psychological, social and financial health of older persons. On this subject, the United Nations published a policy brief on the impact of Covid-19 on older persons in May 2020. In line with this, the purpose of this general review is to address three issues affecting older persons living in residential care facilities. Protective measures implemented to block the virus' entry, the type of mistreatment most frequently experienced and the necessity to promote and defend the rights of these persons.
