We are increasingly training participants and/or their caregivers who have not yet participated, so they can access Zoom, and join in the fun.

This has been an especially difficult time for our participants’ caregivers who are now giving their loved ones 24/7 care. Many of them badly need respite, and we are working to provide some solutions for them.

Information & Assistance
I&A is open, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and is actively supporting seniors through this crisis. Spanish language support is available. Call Tiffanie at 707.253.4248 for assistance.

“The phone is ringing constantly, with assistance requests from seniors all over the county, ” writes Program manager, Tiffanie Walker. ” At the beginning of the Shelter in Place, we had many requests for food, water, and toilet paper. However, current needs are more complex. We have formed multiple alliances with other local organizations to address them. Our greatest needs right now are:

We are in serious need of Caregivers for the Caregiver Referral Registry to care for seniors in the community. However, in order to provide caregiver services in Napa County, there are some county and state requirements that need to be satisfied. Contact Tiffanie at twalker@collabriacare or call her at 707-253-4248 For more details. These are paid positions.

We are also in need of volunteers who can drive seniors to various appointments. Please contact Anne House at ahouse@collabriacare.org or 707.815.7065.

We appreciate your support and referrals.”

UpValley Village
UpValley Village continues to provide support and connections to the necessary resources to its members by phone. Call Tracy at 707.815.0217 for assistance.

“UpValley Village has continued full operations during the pandemic, “ writes Program Manager, Tracy Rodriguez-Biggs. “We have been able to continue providing support to our members by picking up and delivering items, anything from groceries, medications, and other necessary items. We have also continued to provide medically necessary transportation to our villagers as other means of transportation in the community have become limited.

We are currently transitioning to Emergency Preparedness as we quickly approach Power Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) and Fire Season. We have begun assessing our Village Members and connecting them to emergency preparedness programs and supports. In addition to emergency preparedness, we are also collaborating with other community-based organizations (COAD, Information and Assistance, UVFC and more) to be as up to date on our changing situation and to provide an additional layer of support for our village as well as for the rest of the community.”
