Through its comprehensive transportation, housing, community living and health services programs, Bay Aging is committed to ensuring every neighbor in our region has a choice and ready access to a range of services to help them remain independent in their home, and work and play throughout the community, as long as they choose.
Helping Neighbors Program
With the rising prevalence of Coronavirus (COVID 19) in the region, many of us are self-quarantining. This creates challenges for many seniors and other self-quarantined individuals who still need access to groceries, medications, and other services or supplies. To help address these concerns, Bay Aging offers our Helping Neighbors program to link those interested in volunteering with our neighbors in need of assistance.
If you are interested in helping your neighbors stay fed and have access to much needed services/supplies during this crisis, or if you are quarantined/home-bound and need assistance, please fill out the Volunteer or Request for Assistance forms and we will connect volunteers with those in need. Please note, this service is available to ANY AGE, not just seniors.

Bay Aging is providing Meals on Wheels deliveries to an expanding number of recipients. The Community Volunteer and Request for Assistance program is a community service that Bay Aging is providing for information purposes only.
Bay Aging will only share contact information among those volunteering to provide services to those who are requesting services. This is strictly a VOLUNTEER service and reimbursements of any kind will not be provided by Bay Aging. Bay Aging has not conducted and will not conduct any background checks or any other investigations pertaining to the volunteers providing these services or the recipients. Participants should refer to CDC guidelines and use these services at their discretion.
Community Services List
Through a survey of area grocery stores and pharmacies, Bay Aging developed a guide that identifies businesses that offer special shopping hours for seniors, curbside delivery and even home delivery services. This comprehensive list of area grocery stores and pharmacies and any relevant services they are offering can be found here: Community Services During the COVID-19 Emergency
