The COVID-19 situation requires senior to stay home to stay safe. To support those isolated at home the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance announces a new program “YHAA Phone Friends for Seniors” to decrease isolation and connect to needed services.
Beginning the week of March 30, Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance will be accepting participants to receive calls and volunteers to make calls. YHAA will then match these “phone friends” for daily social check ins. Along with socializing, volunteers should also ensure that their senior friend has the food and medicine that they need. YHAA will be assisting with connecting seniors to home delivery services for food and medication to make sure they remain safe during these difficult time.
A form to sign up will be on our website at https://www.yolohealthyaging.org/phone-friend-forms or you can call 530-757-5583 to sign up.
