California Launches Effort to Combat Senior Isolation & Keep Seniors Safe

The California Department of Aging and the California Health and Human Services Agency recently announced a new effort, encouraging residents to continue to stay home to protect the most vulnerable and also to check in with older neighbors to make sure they feel connected and offer to help them obtain food, medication, or other supplies to keep them home and safe from COVID-19. 

The campaign includes a pledge and a statewide hotline — 833-544-2374 — in coordination with the non-profit local 2-1-1 systems, so that Californians have a one-stop shop to answer their questions and get assistance during this crisis.
