Social Services Resource Center
The Huntington Beach Council on Aging and Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center help fund direct services to seniors. Care Managers focus on connections with programs and services for the frail and elderly, homebound and at-risk seniors. They link seniors with services that assist elders in the city with physical, social and nutritional needs. Professional staff and volunteers work directly with older adults, their families and the community to facilitate independence and aging in the community. Care Managers make weekly, monthly or quarterly contact with seniors needing on going services. Services vary from short term to long term, depending on need.
Transportation/Surf City Seniors on the Go!
Senior Services provides transportation for seniors, ages 60 and over. This program offers non-emergency medical trips, rides to the senior center for recreational and nutritional needs, and trips to any location in Huntington Beach, including Huntington Beach Hospital. The busses, vans and sedans that make up the transportation service also travel to Hoag Hospital Campus in Newport Beach, Fountain Valley Hospital and Orange Coast Medical Center in neighboring Fountain Valley. There is no cost to seniors although donations are greatly appreciated. To register and request transportation, call (714) 374-1742 and book a ride.
During the COVID19 viral outbreak, the Seniors On the Go transportation rides are being prioritized to ongoing medical care appointments such as dialysis and cancer treatments, doctors appointments, and grocery shopping needs.
The vehicles are sanitized after each ride and precautions are being taken to keep social distancing while transporting residents in cars. This includes keeping the windows down to increase air flow and sitting passengers in opposite corners from drivers.
If you are not feeling well for any reason, please call and cancel your ride to protect your community and the drivers.
