The Copper River Native Association (CRNA) is adjusting some of its service programs due to the coronavirus and a need to protect citizens and staff.
CRNA wrote a letter on March 18th, 2020, saying it  will be taking “additional steps” to protect senior citizens in their programs, as a pre-planned social distancing response program for the region’s elders.

The Elders Service Department of CRNA will be delivering daily Title VI meals to participants at their homes. Unfortunately, this service can only be made available to those already participating in the program.  This program typically offers hot meals to qualified elders who are 55 and over. Usually, they are also offered  bus service to the facility for their meals.

Title III meals will be made available for pickup in a take home box at the Robert Marshall CRNA building in Tazlina. All current participants of the Title III program are encouraged to take advantage of this service and continue to receive meals every weekday.

To protect those at greatest risk, “homemakers” will not be coming to homes at this time, CRNA wrote on March 18th. (The CRNA homemaker service typically includes basic home upkeep such as laundry, dishwashing, vacuuming, floor-cleaning, bathroom cleaning and social engagement.)

CRNA says that the purpose of these restrictions is to limit social interaction and large group congregating during the coronavirus episode.

If you have a specific question about the Elder Services Program, contact Gayle Kildal at CRNA: 822-5241.


ALWAYS CHECK TO SEE IF A SERVICE IS STILL BEING GIVEN.
