Resilient or stubborn? Pre-boomers coping better in time of pandemic

Resilient or stubborn? Pre-boomers coping better in time of pandemic

31 Jul, 2020

Commissioned by the Australian Seniors insurance company, a survey found three in every four people aged 75 and older say the isolation and social distancing during the crisis has had no impact on their mental health.

Overall the survey of more than 5000 people aged 50 and older finds 90 per cent feel they have adapted well to the COVID crisis. But a deeper dive finds that pre-boomers are more likely than baby boomers or Generation X to be chugging along feeling pretty much the same emotionally and physically as before COVID-19.
