According to the data published so far, the pandemic caused by COVID-19 has severely affected older people, especially those living in residential centres. The vulnerability and poor prognosis of the disease in this population group has led to the implementation of more restrictive preventive measures of confinement, isolation and social distancing than in any other group, accompanied by ageist attitudes that are determinant in essential issues such as treatment or access to services by older people.

It may be easy to talk about people over 80 in the country with the highest life expectancy globally. But we're always plagued by the question "and how is life then, how should it be": it's easy to say, "add life, quality of life, to the years". What is the reality, is our environment ready, what activities are performed and can be performed? The last table of the #JornadasAES is dedicated to this issue, "What are we doing for the quality of life of people beyond the age of 80?".
