The Covid-19 emergency had a significant impact on elderly population, as the fragmented data currently available demonstrate. In this context, great emphasis has been attributed to the outbreak of the epidemic in elderly facilities, especially elderly residential centers, whose patients have been strongly exposed to the transmission. The objective of this article is to investigate how these phenomena have been managed and to trace a detailed analysis that considers the specificities of the elderly care sector in Italy, before and after Covid-19. The emergency has in fact uncovered an already highly fragmented context, both in service provision and policy configuration, escalating its critical issues. Finally, the absence of crisis management observed enables a reflection on the lessons learned so far.
Keywords: Elderly care, Covid-19, nursing home, assistance, needs, services.
