COVID-19 / Stay Connected

Stay Connected Program

The “Stay Connected” Program involves outreach and support to older adults experiencing greater isolation due to COVID-19. Participants may be identified by the primary care team, or identified via contact with known housing or social service agencies in the grantees’ communities.

The program was introduced to Care Partners sites in April of 2020, after the COVID-19 pandemic emerged. The program is focused on using phone calls to more effectively reach out to isolated older adults. The Stay Connected program will now roll out to senior centers and public housing facilities in Washington. Click here for the news release about it.
