Thank you, Governor Newsom!

We Stand With Seniors applauds Governor Gavin Newsom for including the development of a statewide Master Plan for Aging among his top initiatives in his State of the State address and prioritizing the needs of California’s aging population. With the number of seniors increasing by nearly 90 percent, or four million people by 2030, California is heading for a crisis in caring for its’ older adults. We Stand With Seniors looks forward to working with the governor and his administration on the development of this Master Plan for Aging and making successful aging a reality for seniors throughout the Golden State.

1 out of 5 older adults in California lives in poverty and that number will rapidly increase in the near future. Those seniors won’t be able to afford healthcare, food or housing, with many slipping into homelessness.

West Health and The SCAN Foundation launched We Stand With Seniors… Will You? to shine a light on the growing challenges faced by California seniors and their families and the cost to the state if these issues are not addressed.

The We Stand With Seniors nonpartisan, education and awareness campaign is designed to engage seniors, advocates and policymakers throughout the state to discuss and address these issues. Learn more about the campaign and how you can #StandWithSeniors.
