Health Alert: Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Education and Information
Older adults are at increased risk for
COVID-19 complications due to age or because of an underlying medical condition, so it is especially important to take actions to reduce risk of exposure.
Maricopa County Department of Public Health has specialized tips for older adults and their family members to safeguard and lower chances of exposure and inform seniors what to do if you get sick.
The Human Services Department provides programming and services for older adults at 15 senior centers. Each center provides a wealth of opportunities for activity, education and personal development. Some of what participants can expect to enjoy include recreation and social activities, nutrition programs, educational opportunities, and social services such as emergency utility and rental assistance and eviction prevention/move-in assistance. Centers also provide case management services for areas such as employment, budgeting, social and life-skills development. Moreover, each center provides information on senior programs and resources, such as Neighborhood Services' minor home appliance replacement/repair for seniors and community senior discount programs.
For additional city services for seniors and adults with disabilities, see the Older Adult Programs listing.
