Seniors are among those most at risk for serious health outcomes from COVID-19. As a result, many are facing isolation and neglect in ways they have never before experienced.
Through its Elder Abuse Resources and Supports (EARS) program, CSS works with hundreds of seniors each year who are experiencing, or are at risk of, physical, emotional, or financial abuse, and neglect.
This takes on new forms and meaning amid the COVID-19 pandemic and our EARS program coordinators are adapting to meet this population’s changing needs.
We are committed to maintaining our outreach and assessment work, respecting safe social distancing, and finding ways to continue to support seniors through video and phone.
Our seniors need us now, more than ever before.
Will you help us ensure our seniors are not left to face this crisis alone?
Your donations allows us to help hundreds of seniors through our EARS outreach and assessment.
