Take the Pledge to Combat Social Isolation Among Older Adults
April 1, 2020
Today, the California Department of Aging and the California Health and Human Services Agency announced the Stay Home, Save Lives, Check In Campaign. They’re encouraging people, like us, to take a few minutes out of each day to check-in with our older neighbors. Let’s make sure they feel connected and that they have the food, medicine, and other supplies they need while they stay at home to keep safe from COVID-19.
“It’s on all of us across the state to check in on the older adults in our lives – our friends, families and neighbors – to help them during this outbreak. Each and every one of us must reach out in a safe way to make sure that our older neighbors have someone to talk to and have enough food to eat during these difficult times.” – Governor Newsom, March 31st press conference
