Abstract

Exposure cases to Covid-19 in Indonesia continue to increase, and from time to time there is a substantial increase, and it is not yet known when it will stop, and it is feared that it will continue to rise. One of the most at risk / vulnerable to Covid-19 exposure is the elderly population. Because of their physical state, elderly people, whoever they live with are in fact extremely vulnerable to being exposed to Covid-19. Elderly citizens who live in institutions of social care, for example, the Centre for Elderly Social Rehabilitation (BRSLU), which is operated by the central government (Ministry of Social RI), the Social Rehabilitation Institution for Elderly Protection (PSRPLU), which is managed by the local government, and the Social Welfare Institution for Elderly Age (LKSLU), which is organized by the community, have an important role to play in the protection of the elderly throughout their lifetime. The focus of this study is to identify the social security of the elderly in social services institutions coordinated by the government, the local government and the community during the Covid-19 pandemic, and to identify the priority needs of these elderly social services institutions to provide social protection during the Covid-19 pandemic. On the basis of the implementation of social protection during the Covid-19 pandemic, senior social protection agencies coordinated by the government, local governments, and the community. It is concluded that the social security of the elderly during the Covid-19 pandemic by these organizations is carried out by improvements in activities and refocusing the budget.
