WeHo Celebrating ‘Senior Month’

For more than two decades, the City of West Hollywood has organized an annual series of activities to engage its thriving population of older community members during Senior Month, also known as Older Americans Month, celebrated each May. 

West Hollywood’s ongoing efforts to support, celebrate, and value older adults is part of the commitment to being an age-friendly city.

Throughout the month of May, the City will educate and inform the broader community about the variety of available older adult programs and resources that make West Hollywood an age-friendly city. Community members are invited to follow @WehoCares on Facebook and Twitter to learn about West Hollywood’s transportation services, food and nutrition resources, well-being programs, and tools to stay civically engaged.

The month-long effort will spotlight services provided by West Hollywood’s contracted social service agencies and highlight how City departments have supported older adult community members during the COVID-19 pandemic. Keeping the community aware of available services for older adults is a goal of West Hollywood’s Aging In Place/Aging in Community Initiative. The community education effort will also include themes and information from the United States Department of Human Services, Administration for Community Living, which is promoting May 2021 through the theme: Communities of Strength.

Community members ages 50+ are also encouraged to enjoy the many programs and services offered by Los Angeles LGBT Center Senior Services Department.

Senior Month programming is presented by the City of West Hollywood and its Senior Advisory Board, as well as the Activities Program of West Hollywood Comprehensive Services Center of Jewish Family Service LA.

As community events continue to be offered virtually, the City of West Hollywood is offering free one-on-one tech support sessions to help community members learn basic Zoom skills. Tech support sessions start over the phone and switch to video chat on Zoom. To learn more and book an appointment, email recreation@weho.org or call (323) 848-6511.

In addition to one-on-one support, the City’s Recreation Services Division recently launched Community Connection, “a quarterly guide to thrive at any age.” The guide is available to everyone and features information especially relevant to community members ages 55 and older.

For more information about additional related programming in the month of May and about senior services in the City of West Hollywood, please visit www.weho.org/services/social-services/senior-services.
