Alone Together is a research project that aims to understand the experiences of older people from culturally and linguistic diverse community backgrounds during COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everybody, but we know that its impact has been worse for older people who live independently. We also know that if you come from other countries or if English is your second language your social networks can sometimes be further away and physical distancing and lockdowns can make you feel isolated.
As part of the Alone Together project we are inviting older people from culturally and linguistic diverse communities to talk with one of our research team. We would like to know how COVID-19 has impacted your everyday life; how you are coping with these changes; and what type of services have been useful.
These conversations will help us to understand how to provide better support to older people from these communities in the future.
The Participant Information section will provide you more information about the project and what participation would involve. Feel free to contact us if you want to participate or would like to get more information about the project.
This project is supported by the Design & Creative Practice ECP (RMIT University)
