HCoA Message re: COVID-19

Dear Friends and Partners,

As our government and community continue to respond to reduce the risk of community spread of COVID-19, the Hamilton Council on Aging is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and members.

For the foreseeable future, the Hamilton Council on Aging will be cancelling all scheduled program events and activities, along with any in-person meetings until further notice.

We recognize that this is an exceptionally challenging time, especially as we all strive to follow government recommendations for physical distancing, while ensuring our own physical, mental and social health. With this in mind, we have gathered an abbreviated list of phone numbers, programs, services and resources that we hope may be useful to help you and older adults in our community stay positive, informed and connected! (attached)

We encourage partner organizations to please forward us information about useful services/links for older adults to access during this time. We will continue to update our website with relevant links and resources that will empower us all to stay healthy, connected and supportive of one another and our family, friends and neighbours – #stronger together!

Sincerely,

The Hamilton Council on Aging (HCoA) www.coahamilton.ca
