Resumen

Las medidas de confinamiento ordenadas por los diversos gobiernos mundiales para frenar la propagación de la pandemia por COVID-19 han conllevado otros efectos desfavorables en la población mayor. Especialmente se han visto afectados por los problemas derivados de la soledad, el aislamiento y las dificultades de acceso a diversos servicios. Estas circunstancias hicieron necesario abordar de forma urgente estas dificultades. El objeto de este trabajo es identificar los problemas a los que se enfrenta el adulto mayor en el confinamiento y exponer algunas de las propuestas e intervenciones que se han llevado a cabo para proteger a este sector de la población.
