Members of our community who are 60+ are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19. In order to support San Ramon Seniors who must remain home during the current public health order, we are offering the following resource:

Senior Resource Flyer

Driver's License Renewal: The DMV has provided an automatic (one-year) extension to Californians age 70 and older with a noncommercial driver license with an expiration date between March 1 and December 31, 2020. This action delays the requirement for this population to visit a DMV office during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Senior Hotline (English): (925) 973-3250

The City of San Ramon has set up a hotline, which Seniors can call Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. to:

  • Sign up for meal delivery through the Senior Nutrition Program

  • Let us know what else you need (ex: food items, paper goods, prescription pick-up, etc.) so that we can figure out how to help

Senior Hotline (Mandarin)(925) 973-3277

This voicemail line for Mandarin speakers will be checked between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday–Friday. San Ramon Seniors who speak Mandarin are encouraged to leave a message if they are in need of a meal or goods.

 

Friendship Line California: 1-888-670-1360

California is expanding Friendship Line California to support lonely and isolated older Californians across the state. Friendship Line California is toll-free and available to provide emotional support to older Californians facing loneliness, isolation and anxiety. The California Department of Aging is partnering with the Institute on Aging to support this effort.

Senior Nutrition Program

Seniors ages 60+ should call (925) 973-3250 by noon on Monday to request lunches for the following day. A five-day meal pack will be delivered or available for curbside pickup on Tuesdays only, from 12:00 – 1:30pm.

During the "shelter at home" order, meal deliveries will be made by County staff orCity staff, who will be wearing a staff shirt and have an ID badge.

To qualify for lunches, residents will need to fill out a NAPIS form & County paperwork to be eligible for the Senior Nutrition Program.

In addition, CalFresh Food is offering application assistance to those interested in a CalFresh Card, which enables residents to buy food at participating grocery stores and Farmers' Markets. To apply, visit the CalFresh Food website.

 

Interested in volunteering to help?

Click here to sign up as a City Lights volunteer, and select the “Sign Up” button next to the COVID-19 Community Response program. As needs within our community are identified, volunteers will be notified of opportunities to help.

One opportunity to help would be to donate new and unopened goods for care packages that can be distributed to Seniors who cannot leave their homes at this time. Useful items may include toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, canned goods, pasta, etc—as requests come in through the Senior Hotline. Donations will be accepted at the Alcosta Senior and Community Center, Monday–Friday, 11 a.m.–2 p.m., beginning Wednesday, March 18.

We also encourage those who are able, to reach out to Seniors in your own neighborhoods. A simple way to help would be to share the number of the Senior Hotline (925-973-3250) with them so they can request meals by noon on the previous business day.
