Severe forms of Covid-19 infectious disease often affect the frail elderly. They can induce inaugural psychiatric manifestations or aggravate the underlying psychiatric pathologies. Some of these pathologies persist after the acute episode and require specific management. Doctors and caregivers involved in the care of infected patients are themselves exposed to psychological and even psychiatric difficulties and are looking for collaborative help complementing actions in the somatic care sectors.

The development of the coronavirus epidemic is disrupting the organization of medical units and increasing the burden of care for nursing staff. Care facilities for the elderly are particularly exposed. Staff express legitimate fears about this, especially since they are particularly at risk of contracting the virus. Their elderly residents develop severe forms of the disease. To the anxiety generated by the risk of being contaminated, is added the one linked to the physical distancing of visitors made necessary to protect them.

The health emergency linked to Covid-19 has been stressful for staff working in nursing home, and doubly painful for residents faced with the risk of infection and the reality of family separation. We explore in this article some psychological consequences resulting from their experience in the waning health crisis, hoping that the experience gained will allow greater efficiency in the event of a resumption of the pandemic.
