Many old people live with challenges, poor health and hardship in their life. In spite of the crisis and losses, they tend to experience low impact as compared to the general population, which may be accounted to their resilience. Resilience is achieving the same level of functional ability as such of the pre-crisis state. A study was conducted online to assess resilience amongst the elderly during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in a selected rural community area, Chengalpattu district, Tamil Nadu, India. A descriptive research design was used. The sample size was 67. Convenient sampling technique was adopted. The demographic profile and the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale-25 were used as data collection instruments. Many older people showed moderate levels of resilience, and the mean score was 57.86. Gender and educational status and family income were significantly associated with resilience.
