Our Efforts in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

We closed all WHS senior center services, Senior Companion services, and the Foster Grandparent program from 3/16/2020 until they partially reopened in Fall 2020. Other Aging Services programs, such as the Caregiver program, case management services, etc., stopped face-to-face visits and started calling each client on a weekly basis. We have begun or continued the following unique services during this pandemic.

  • Needs-on-Wheels (NoW): Weber Human Services Area Agency on Aging staff are calling all of our registered clients, including Senor Companions, their clients, Foster Grandparents, clients of in-home and community programs, caregiver clients, New Choice Waiver clients, RSVP homebound clients, and so on. Several hundred seniors have been assessed for special needs, including fresh food, daily supplies, medication, in-home delivery, and so on. Aging Services workers shop for and deliver the needed items on a case-by-case basis, purchasing some items for NoW using our interim budget. We cannot call all the seniors in Weber-Morgan; however, we are taking this extra step for our clients whose addresses/phone numbers are in our records. We also accept requests (on a case-by-case basis) for our Needs-on-Wheels services from community seniors who are not our registered clients.

  • Meals-on-Wheels: All Nutrition staff continue to work for approximately 550 homebound seniors. We have started to accept seniors who are temporarily homebound due to self-isolation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Weber-Morgan Senior Art Gallery: I have uploaded new artwork to the Weber-Morgan Senior Art Gallery. The gallery has showcased only artworks created at senior centers. However, since the centers have been closed for awhile, artists have started to send me their artwork created at home. I have decided to upload these artworks to the gallery.
