We provide a number of different services for our seniors including:
A wide variety of services exist in San Mateo County to support the needs of aging adults and their families, and to support independent living.
Among the biggest challenges facing aging adults and their families is learning about and accessing those services. Services Link is the City of San Mateo’s effort to help link you to those many services.
S.A.S.H. – Shopping Assistance for Seniors who are Homebound
S.A.S.H. is a grocery shopping and delivery service for homebound seniors who are able to cook for themselves. A volunteer shopper will shop and deliver groceries to you on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Your volunteer will take your order and deliver your groceries the next day. You only pay for the groceries; there is no fee for the service. For more information on receiving service or volunteering your time, contact Amber Shong-Brown at (650) 522-7493.
