PROGRAM UPDATE REGARDING THE SENIOR CENTER

At the City of Pico Rivera the health and safety of our residents and employees is our primary goal.  Given that priority, the City continues to monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation that is not only affecting the County, but the State of California as well.  As a result of the general advisement from the State Governor Gavin Newsom, we have made the tough but necessary decision to cancel or postpone our City events and programs in order to protect our residents and employees and supplement  the County’s and the State’s efforts to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

As of Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the Pico Rivera Senior Center will CLOSE and all programs and events at the Senior Center including the SASSFA Lunch Program will be suspended until further notice.  SASSFA will be providing an alternative meal service for those that participate in the SASSFA meal program (Please see below).  The Senior Center’s caseworker will continue to take scheduled appointments over the phone, and the AARP Tax Assistance program will be suspended. 

This decision did not come lightly; however, the health and welfare of our residents, our participants, and especially our most vulnerable population, seniors and children, are of the utmost importance.

"LEt's stay connected" Telephone reassurance Program

Due to the COVID19 crisis and Los Angeles County’s Safer at Home Order, the City’s Parks and Recreation Department established a program that would help ensure the safety and security of the seniors in our community. City Staff has implemented the “Let’s Stay Connected” Program to connect with our seniors and monitor their well-being while they remain Safer at Home.  “Let’s Stay Connected” is a free telephone reassurance program. Parks and Recreation staff will conduct friendly phone calls to Pico Rivera Senior Center patrons. The purpose of the phone call is to increase the participant’s social ties, provide support for resources, and check on their overall well-being. “Let’s Stay Connected” calls began earlier this month and will continue weekly until Health Officials allow the Senior Center to be open again.

To register for this program, call the Senior Center at 562.948.4844.
