On February 21st of this year, Governor Kate Brown declared May Oregon’s Older Americans Month. We at the Central Oregon Health Council encourage you to support the physical, mental, social and emotional well-being of older Americans in your midst. Lend a hand with safe distance, look out for each other, and connect with resources that can help at centraloregonresources.org.
Here are two of our favorite resources available for older Americans in Central Oregon:
Joy 4 All
Students launch a hotline with jokes, stories and support for isolated seniors
By dialing 1-877-JOY-4ALL (1-877-569-4255), callers can hear pre-recorded, continuously updated messages tailored for the elderly and the isolated.
Medicare Coverage during COVID-19
The Central Oregon Council on Aging’s SHIBA Volunteers will continue to support seniors in the tri-county with their Medicare questions via phone until further notice.
