At the time of writing this book, the world was in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many countries have experienced two lengthy lockdowns where contact with others was significantly curtailed. In this chapter, based on first studies done in and outside Europe, and more specifically in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, we reflect more in depth on the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic for people living with dementia, their families and professional caregivers in different care settings: at home, day care facilities and nursing homes.
