SOS Volunteer Remembrance Luncheon

Our Volunteer Remembrance Luncheon honors those volunteers who have passed away while also recognizing the volunteers who continue to support vulnerable elders in the community.

Special notice to our clients, patients, students, volunteers and friends

The Sanford Center for Aging is taking seriously the public health concerns about the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) and the special risks this poses to elders, adults living with chronic diseases, and those who work with them. While doing everything possible to avoid panic or rash action, we are taking all prudent precautions to reduce the spread of the virus. This means we are suspending all our group programs, large events and other activities, and will seek alternate ways to deliver these programs and services.

The clinical services offered in our Geriatrics Specialty Clinic will continue as usual, with necessary precautions.

Please contact us with any questions: (775) 784-4774 or | See complete details here.
