Presentations will focus on how the ongoing pandemic is impacting services that serve the aging population
VANCOUVER – The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the area’s elderly population will be the topic of two presentations at this month’s meeting of the Clark County Commission on Aging.
The meeting, which takes place Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 4:30 p.m., will feature community resource organizations that assist and/or provide older adults with their everyday needs, such as food, supplies and medications
The commission wants to hear how COVID-19 has impacted the older adults they serve and how they have modified their services during the pandemic.
The presenters include:
- Mikayla Springob, Area Agency on Aging and Disabilities of SW Washington
- Emily Kaleel, Clark County Food Bank
- Jeananne Edwards, Human Services Council
The Commission on Aging, supported by the Clark County Council, is a nine-member volunteer group that implements the Aging Readiness Plan and provides leadership addressing the needs of aging community members.
