Coronavirus News for Seniors: Senior Centers Closed But Meals Are Available for PickupPosted on 03/18/20
To protect our most vulnerable Angelenos, the City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles Senior Centers have been closed to the public as of Monday March 16th. Meals will still be provided for seniors.
For now, packaged or frozen foods will be distributed for pickup at regular meal sites. Department of Aging is currently working with partners to provide a home delivery service for the meals previously served at dining centers. An update will be shared as soon as it is available. You can find information about the sites on this map: https://bit.ly/agingla
. Expect details to be added to the map in the coming days.
If you can, please send a caregiver, friend or family member under age 65 to pick up your meals, as the Governor’s Office has asked those ages 65+ to isolate themselves at home to prevent coronavirus exposure.
If you do not have someone to send, please call 213-482-7252 or call the center you normally visit for assistance.
The full announcement on senior meal service changes is below.
Some grocery stores are adding senior hours early in the morning. Gelsons in West Hollywood is the only one near BABCNC borders that we know of at the moment but we will provide updates as we learn more.
The LA City Department on Aging also notes that they are preparing online programming for seniors - look for their Age Mastery Program
