LIFE ElderCare COVID Update: Focus on Food & Connection

As you all know, the Alameda County shelter-in-place (SIP) order resulted in thousands more seniors becoming suddenly homebound. To ensure that these elders continued to have access to healthy food, LIFE ElderCare expanded its Meals on Wheels program and relaxed eligibility requirements so that we could provide healthy mid-day meals to senior in need.

The SIP caused a huge spike in demand for Meals on Wheels. We are grateful to share with you all that we have been able to fulfil every request for assistance and are delivering 50% more meals per day than average! Meals are delivered with no contact to porches and front doors; then masked volunteers wait from 6 feet away to say hello and provide a daily well-check.

Even as parts of the community slowly reopen, isolation will remain the stark reality for the many seniors who are at risk. And so, LIFE ElderCare will continue to function as their lifeline to essential services, support, and connection. Whether they healthy meals, groceries, meds or other essentials; a friendly phone call; help connecting with other resources; or reassurance about how to protect themselves during the pandemic – we are there to provide help as needed so that vulnerable elders can continue to safely shelter-in-place.

We have been able to meet the sharply increased need for meals because of community support from kind people like yourself. We have been deeply moved by this outpouring of support: those who have donated time, money, and supplies to ensure that we can continue to provide essential services for vulnerable elders.

Thank you for helping us care for our aging neighbors. You support ensures that no senior is hungry and alone – especially during these challenging times. Take care and stay well.
