It’s no secret that our most vulnerable population during this COVID-19 pandemic has been our seniors and older adults. They need extra protection and closer oversight because of the isolation they have been put in. The questions that remain include things like, “Who is there to make sure necessary care doesn’t fall through the cracks?” “How can I stay in touch with my loved one?” “Who can I reach out to if I don’t feel like my loved one is properly cared for?”

To help answer these questions and more, Executive Director Nicole Howell, from Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda joins us for a new episode of Absolute Trust Talk. She has been on the frontlines of COVID-19 safety efforts among seniors and elderly in long-term care across the Bay Area, and we’re excited to have her join us to share the latest on all things elder care.
