Our mission to support and educate older adults and their families is especially important in these most challenging times. A public health crisis like the coronavirus can cause uncertainty and stress for people of all ages, and the isolation caused by social distancing can feel lonely. These feelings may be new for some. But for many of the older adults served by AgingNext, 78% of whom are considered low-income and 63% of whom are homebound, stress and loneliness are experienced regularly. This crisis only exacerbates those feelings.
AgingNext staff and volunteers are working hard on the front lines to support our clients. Our team has delivered over 150 meals in the last week alone. We are doing all that we can to ensure our 16-city area’s older adults stay safe, feel secure, and have all they need to remain healthy at home until the day when our normal programs and services are back up and running in their full capacity.
While our office is closed to walk-in traffic, our resource specialists continue to:
- deliver groceries to older adults in need
- make friendly phone calls to ensure health and safety
- provide rides to medical appointments
- pick-up prescriptions at the pharmacy
We understand this new normal has affected everyone. You may be struggling as well. Yet given the high risk the coronavirus poses to adults aged 65+, many of the older adults that we serve are in vital need of support and are looking to us as providers of that support. Any donation during this time will meaningfully impact so many people in our local communities.
