The Covid19 pandemic has affected all of us in many different ways. We would like to learn more about how the pandemic has affected people ageing without children in the UK. Ageing without children covers a wide range of older people who cannot consistently rely on support from their adult children who are the most common source of help in later life. People ageing without children may also be ageing without a partner as well.
People ageing without children includes:
•         People who have no children at all through infertility, choice or circumstance or because they may have outlived their children
•         People whose children are unable to offer help or support e.g. they live at a great distance, or have care needs of their own
•         People whose children are unwilling to offer help and support e.g. they may have become estranged and have no contact.
