WELCOME TO SENIOR SERVICES
SERVING SENIORS IN WASHOE COUNTY FOR OVER 38 YEARS                                      
 
Due to Covid-19 concerns in our Community, our doors remain closed to the public. However, home delivered and takeout meals for seniors are not impacted.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but the health of Washoe County’s elderly is priority during this trying time.

Seniors that must go out for groceries, gas, medications, or any other reason necessary should do the following:

  • Remain at least 6 feet from another person in public.
  • Stay away from anyone who is sick or exhibiting signs of illness.
  • Cough or sneeze in sleeve.

For more information about COVID-19, please head to the Regional Information Center’s website.

We thank you in advance for understanding.

Sincerely,

Washoe County Senior Services Division Director Steve McBride.
