Isolation can be a relentless enemy for our LGBTQ seniors but those who find The Center discover powerful allies.
Isolation can be a relentless enemy for our LGBTQ seniors, especially during the Governor's Stay-At-Home order, but those who find The Center discover powerful allies. Senior Services – 50 and Better Together – strives to create a safe space where those 50 years and “better” have access to important resources and referrals regarding health care, social services, and community activities.
The Center is still holding our senior support groups, but now they are online via Zoom. Virtual groups include Senior Social Hour, HIV+ Discussion Group, Feeling Fit Club (3 times a week!), and a Grief and Loss Discussion Group. Click here to see Senior Service's May 2020 calendar.
We also know how important food security is to our senior community and this past week we held our monthly Senior Food Bank, serving over 241 individuals. Seniors received a box of food and this month's 'extras' were fresh pears and toilet paper. Seniors could line up using social distancing or, new this month, avail themselves of a drive-thru option with groceries loaded right into their cars. At North Park Senior Apartments beginning this May, we are thankful to Jewish Family Services who are delivering frozen meals to our seniors. For more information on our program, contact the Senior Services Manager at 619.692.2077 x147 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are able to donate to help us continue to provide Emergency Services, comfort, and care to our senior community, and all of our LGBTQ community, please visit thecentersd.org/giving. Thank you.
