  In Israel during Covid-19 pandemic there was, till recently, an emphasis on how older people, especially those 70+ are the most vulnerable to become Corona victims. Also, especially during the early times of Covid-19, imposing strict restrictions and complete lock down led to social exclusion which caused especially many residents of nursing homes stress and anxiety. Thus, it became imperative to develop a social inclusion framework and empower elders in general, and especially those in long term care - the residents of 300 sheltered housing and old age nursing home facilities, in particular.
