COVID-19 - Resources for Professionals in Aging and Elder Services

Sanford Center for Aging

COVID-19 Resources

The Sanford Center for Aging will update this list as we get changes and additions.

During the COVID-19 Aging Services Crisis, the entire team at the Sanford Center has been receiving web resources from a wide range of sources. We have decided to consolidate those resources we feel are credible and make them available to our aging-services partners. We will update this list as we get changes and additions. Email ybeasley@med.unr.edu with ideas for additions.

List updated May 3, 2020. Please let us know if you'd like to see something added by emailing ybeasley@med.unr.edu
