COVID-19 has changed the lives of Californians in so many ways. Millions of people of all ages are staying home and reinventing how to live, work, and connect with family, friends, and communities. Many are experiencing isolation, interruption in services, and loss of income due to the pandemic and resulting recession. Others cannot stay home, because of essential work and services, or do not have a home, and face greater risks of exposure.
CDA is committed to learning from the challenges, changes, and losses due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The COVID-19 Impacts & Recommendation Survey, available in English, Spanish, and Chinese, invites respondents to share their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and thoughts on how, together, we can increase support for older adults, persons with disabilities, and families and caregivers throughout California.
The survey will run through July 24th. CDA will use these learnings to inform the Governor’s Master Plan for Aging, which will be released in December 2020.
