Coronavirus Update: W.Va. Directors of Senior & Community Services offer information regarding meals and services during the COVID-19 National State of Emergency

Release from the West Virginia Directors of Senior and Community Services:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Directors of Senior and Community Services, providers of senior services, are monitoring the ever-changing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and its effect on the state’s senior population. In the days and months ahead, the WVDSCS will continue to collaborate with state and federal agencies in order to continue to provide senior citizens in the state meals and in-home services as needed.

“Because so many seniors rely on us, at the present time, providers are continuing to offer services on a normal basis until the situation warrants otherwise,” said William Carpenter, President of the West Virginia Directors of Senior & Community Services. He added, “Many of the county meal providers throughout West Virginia have or are in the process of purchasing additional shelf stable meals to offer seniors in the event it would become necessary to close senior centers. Providers are also contacting in-home patients in order to update them on the current situation.” 

If any senior citizen in West Virginia should have questions regarding meals or in-home services, they can call their local provider for assistance.  Below is a list of links to various local, state and federal agencies.

The Provider members of the West Virginia Directors of Senior & Community Services are the group working to improve the quality of life, health, honor, and dignity for the aging population of West Virginia. For more information on services:
