The aim of this guide is to share key information relating to older people during the Covid-19 pandemic and to prompt meaningful thinking about and engagement with older people in churches and communities . Churches are in a good position to respond to the rights and needs of older people in direct conversation with them, and to advocate for them, given the community access, goodwill and social trust of faith leaders. Because older people are at higher risk of complications from Covid-19, protecting them is vital. Engaging with older people is a key challenge for faith leaders and congregations: it calls for active and holistic engagement. Support for older people during the pandemic should be seen not only in physiological terms, but also in terms of other critical dimensions, such as emotional and spiritual aspects of support, which also matter greatly to them.
