The California Department of Aging (CDA) provides a range of services to help older adults, adults with disabilities, family caregivers, and residents of the state. These services include community services at home, food and nutrition, and personal care. For those living on a low income, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through CalFresh may be an option. This program provides funds through a debit card system that can be used for food purchases.
Additionally, Medi-Cal is a program for disabled and elderly people with limited income and resources. It provides personal care, nursing home care, and senior housing repair grants. Major cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, and Fremont have also implemented programs to help their elderly populations.
