During these uncharted events of COVID-19, the Arcadia Recreation and Community Service Department has been providing wellness phone calls to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of the local senior population. The department encourages Arcadians to reach out to a senior in the community. Seniors who are alone or homebound may appreciate any type of support whether it be a simple phone call or a shop-and-drop of essential items at their door. Remember not to have direct contact with others and practice social distancing.

Below are a few resources for seniors:
