Covid 19 Resources For Helping The Elderly In Southern California

Covid-19 Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected older adults, who are at an increased risk for severe complications from the disease, as well as the negative effects of prolonged isolation and loneliness.

As an elder abuse law firm in Southern California, we care deeply about the elders in our community and want to see them thrive in their golden years. Our team has compiled a list of resources for those looking for ways to help the elders in their lives during this difficult time. The collection includes volunteer opportunities (both virtual and onsite in Southern California), nonprofit organizations providing food to vulnerable seniors, local government sites, resources for education/connection, legal resources, and additional web-based resource centers.

During COVID-19, all kinds of needs have increased, from blood donation to social connection. We hope this list will give you ideas of how you can help and connect you with opportunities to make a difference in the Southern California community.

Volunteer: Virtual/Remote

With the social limitations necessitated by the pandemic, there are more opportunities to volunteer from home than ever before. New initiatives have been created, while long-standing organizations have shifted their operations to be social-distancing-friendly. Some of the following include options for both remote and onsite volunteering. (Note: Since many of these organizations are focused on building social connection between generations, some of them also offer safe, remote volunteer opportunities for older adults who want to volunteer.)

Donate Food or Money

Food insecurity has increased tremendously during COVID-19, particularly among vulnerable groups such as low-income seniors. The need for compassionate social services has increased as well. Monetary and in-kind donations are greatly needed and appreciated during this time. Segmented by region, this list includes several organizations that are working to provide services and fight hunger among the elderly.

Local Resources

State, county, and city governments are offering and sharing significant COVID-19 resources, many of which are particularly relevant to the elderly. Here are the resource pages from local Southern California governments:

Education & Connection

Learning new skills and helping each other feel socially connected is important for all of us during COVID-19. These resources are relevant to older adults and those who help them.

Legal Resources

Elder abuse is on the rise during the pandemic. It’s harder than ever to keep an eye on elderly loved ones, but there are still ways to monitor for abuse. In addition to getting help from an elder law attorney in the case of abuse or neglect, these resources provide helpful information and reporting mechanisms.

Additional Resource Centers

Many state, national, and international organizations are collecting and providing COVID-19 resources for elders. Here are some of the best and most thorough:
