Calistoga Seniors to Get Help from Napa County

In an attempt to better respond to the growing needs of senior citizens in Calistoga, the Napa County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) and the Calistoga Family Center are partnering on the Calistoga Senior Services Project. Beginning this month, representatives of the Napa County HHSA, in collaboration with the Calistoga Family Center, will interview Calistoga city representatives, community members and nonprofit agencies to evaluate the adequacy and accessibility of senior social services, such as eligibility for medical benefits and accessibility to daily supportive services, in Calistoga.

Due to the rural nature of the community, many Calistoga senior citizens have been unable to access social services outside of Calistoga.

            The project team will use the information they gather to assess the challenges encountered by the large and growing senior population in rural Calistoga and to develop strategies to improve the coordination and delivery of social services to those residents. 

The team expects the final report to be completed in December 2013.

If you would like to be contacted as part of the project, please contact Victoria Li at (707) 942-6206 or Jim Featherstone at j.featherstone@att.net.

Senior citizens don't need help.Who need the help is the young people with unfair labor practice non union employment working only part time with no medical or retirement benefits.They need the help not the old they had it good in life I feel sorrow for the young.They don't have much to look forward to ??
