The Commission on Aging dedicated its ninth year to the topic of the road to recovery from COVID-19
VANCOUVER – The Commission on Aging will hold a joint meeting with the Clark County Council and present a summary of its ninth year of work on Wed., March 16. The 4:30 p.m. meeting will be held in a virtual format via Webex.
This meeting was rescheduled from its original date of Feb. 16.
The Commission on Aging dedicated its ninth year to the topic of the road to recovery from COVID-19. At each meeting, experts provided insights on a specific aspect of what we can learn from the COVID-19 pandemic, especially related to older adults, to better cope with the current situation and to make sure our community is better prepared for a future large-scale or global emergency. The guest experts discussed different ways to connect with older adults, community support for caregivers, meeting the nutritional needs of our older community members, working to address housing and houselessness needs and emergency preparedness among others.
The March 16 meeting will provide the opportunity for the commission to share with the council and public what they learned.
The commission will also outline its 2022 work program, which will focus on the need to connect people to resources, to information and to each other on a personal level.
