Senior Citizen Resources from our Councilmember, Scott Sherman

While most of our District 7 staff has been forced to work remotely on most days, our office is still working every day responding to constituents concerns. If you have problems or concerns in your community, please continue to call or email my office at 619-236-6677, or ScottSherman@SanDiego.Gov.
I received an email yesterday from a constituent who did an excellent job compiling information regarding resources for seniors. It was so thorough that I am sharing it with you now. I hope it is helpful, and if possible, please pass along to any seniors who may benefit.
Healthcare Professionals Needed
First and most importantly, San Diego County is asking for help from healthcare professionals, including people who recently retired or have extra time to volunteer. More information here.
