How has COVID-19 impacted your life and how should lessons learned from the pandemic inform the Master Plan for Aging?
The California Department of Aging wants to hear your story.
COVID-19 has changed the lives of Californians in so many ways. Millions of people of all ages are staying home and reinventing how to live, work, and connect with family, friends, and communities. Many are experiencing isolation, interruption in services, and loss of income due to the pandemic and resulting recession. Others cannot stay home, because of essential work and services, or do not have a home, and face greater risks of exposure.
The California Department of Aging (CDA) is committed to learning from the challenges, changes, and losses due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). CDA will use these learnings to inform the Governor’s Master Plan for Aging, which will be released in December 2020.
This is an opportunity to tell the CDA about your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and your thoughts on to increase support for older adults, persons with disabilities, and families and caregivers in California. Feel free to share the survey with your personal and professional networks so they can add their voices too.
