Solano County launches SolanoCares4Seniors.org

Introducing a new way to get seniors in Solano County informed, involved and connected to services! Solano County Department of Health and Social Services has launched a free, one-stop resource website for seniors, their families, caregivers and service providers. The website, SolanoCares4Seniors.org, is a user-friendly portal of resources designed to simplify the search for senior services.

Online information about resources for seniors is currently scattered across various websites and pages, making it frustrating to find the right services available for them. Developed in collaboration with the Senior Coalition of Solano County and the Area Agency on Aging, the website addresses this issue by centralizing local, state and federal resources for seniors in one convenient place.

The website tackles the information gap that exists between services provided and the ability for seniors to know about them. The website directly connects seniors to these resources by giving them the ability to search for up-to-date information in one convenient place. The website also helps caregivers and service providers search for resources by cutting down search time and increasing valuable interaction with senior clients or patients.

SolanoCares4Seniors.org is a one-stop resource designed to inform, connect and empower seniors and their families.  The website includes service up-to-date listings for Alzheimer’s, housing, transportation, healthcare, medical supplies, locations of senior centers, immigration, and much more.  Users also have access to daily news clippings, pending legislation and means to contact local officials.

 Here are the key features of the website:

  • The Service Directory is a comprehensive list of local, state, and national services for seniors. It enables users to find services, connect to providers, and make informed choices about what they need.
  • The Community Calendar features up-to-date events and classes throughout the county.
  • The Learning Center is designed to educate, inform, and provide access to the most relevant information available for a particular subject area.
  • The Legislate tool tracks pending legislation on the state and federal levels that can affect the lives of seniors. A bill tracker lets site visitors follow bills pending in the current legislative session. And a built-in email tool makes it simple for seniors to contact their elected representative.

SolanoCares4Seniors.org is fully ADA-compliant
and available in multiple languages.

Get informed, get involved and get connected.
