RE-COV research project

What is the purpose of this research project?
The primary aim of the research is to better understand the experiences of retirement village operators and extra care housing providers, and their residents and staff, during the pandemic.

The findings from this research project will be shared nationally and used to inform practice, planning and requirements during the current pandemic, as well as for pandemics occurring in the future.

The results will be shared with Government as the best evidence to date of the role operators of extra care housing and retirement villages have played in seeking to keep their residents safe and maintain their health and wellbeing.

There are two different surveys to complete as part of this research:
  • This main survey (below) is intended to be completed by each retirement village and extra care housing operator to provide us with data at an organisational level in terms of the impact of and response to Covid-19.
  • The supplementary site survey is intended to be completed, if possible, for each site that an operator has.
Please do not include any data or information that relates to care homes or sheltered housing within your villages or extra care schemes. This survey is not intended for operators that manage care homes only.
