December Services at San Diego's Westminster Manor

Westminster Manor, an active senior PSCDC property in San Diego, was filled with activity in December as PSCDC Case Managers Alexis Jaimes and Paul Gonzales assisted their senior residents with full-time on-site services. Services included in-person social and well-being events, resource/referral gathering, technology support, food security, and more.


One food distribution took place throughout December. On December 22nd, which involved our local food bank partner, the San Diego Food Bank. The food bank donated 84 30-pound boxes of food filled with non-perishable goods, such as rice, beans, canned meats, soups, vegetables, soy milk, cereal, and more, for 78 senior households. Residents picked up their boxes in the community's garden, with Assemblymember Chris Ward attending and assisting with the food distribution.



Residents also scheduled one-on-one appointments with Alexis and Paul to receive specialized help in varying subjects. Our Case Managers assisted residents with technology/online support, document clarification, IHSS (In-Home Supportive Services) referrals, online DMV portal assistance, obtaining required documents for lease recertification, stimulus payment information, transportation assistance, SDG&E low-income applications, and online bill payment assistance.


Residents also attended various weekly events hosted by their PSCDC Case Managers. Coffee socials occurred every Monday, which allowed residents to enjoy fresh coffee and pastries provided by ConAM and PSCDC while conversing with neighbors and the Case Managers. The newly formed Westminster Manor Sports Club met every Tuesday to discuss sports and statistics. Wellness Wednesdays had residents start their mornings with Chair Zumba or Chair Stretching, and informative health relatable to seniors in the afternoon, with topics such as hypertension, diabetes management, and healthy eating.


Westminster Manor also celebrated the holidays with a holiday party hosted on Wednesday, December 22nd. Residents enjoyed snacks like nachos, sandwiches, chips, cupcakes, and cookies with water and soda. Residents also competed in an "Ugly Sweater" contest, and many dressed for the occasion! Two lucky winners were selected were awarded prizes for their attire.



PSCDC is looking forward to providing even more affordable housing and essential social services for our residents in this new year.
