Vulnerable seniors are at the greatest risk amid COVID-19. Area Agencies on Aging, like SWIRCA & More are doing all they can to ensure older Americans, those living with disabilities, and caregivers are getting the support and resources they desperately need to remain safe, healthy, and nourished. SWIRCA & More is swiftly monitoring and evolving with the COVID-19 situation and will continue to update our constituents and the community as quickly as possible.
SWIRCA staff and volunteers are able to screen individuals as they are making and receiving calls to see if someone would qualify to receive an in-home COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone who is in a current eligible age group and feels they would fall into the home bound criteria can call our main number at 812-464-7800 to inquire further. Once someone qualifies, they go on a list that the local health department can see and the Health Department works with EMS providers in the area to schedule in-home vaccinations. The homebound individual will be given notice of when they will be receiving the vaccine. These vaccinations would occur after 3:00pm. The in-home vaccination program is not for scheduling a second vaccination. It is for someone who has not had any vaccinations, is in an eligible age group, and would be considered homebound.

With our team, clients, members and their families at the center of everything we do as an agency, I’d like to take the time to address concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the steps we’re taking in our agency to continue our focus on keeping people safe and healthy.
We are closely monitoring the situation and following guidance from public health officials and government agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, so we can make ongoing assessments and stay in constant communication with our team to provide information and guidance as developments unfold.
SWIRCA staff will comply with all CDC prevention measures at all programs, until such a time that the situation subsides or prevents SWIRCA & More from hosting our programs and/or events.
What We Ask of You:
We understand this situation is top of mind for all of us right now. As circumstances continue to change, our goal is, and will continue to be, to provide a safe destination for all guest and team members. We promise to communicate clearly and in a timely manner as we make decisions.
We will be posting updates going forward to our website, so please check there frequently for further information. For all other questions please email or contact President Rhonda Zuber at 812-464-7800 or firstname.lastname@example.org

In times of uncertainty, anxiety and crisis, it is a sad truth that fraudsters ramp up their efforts. But we are on to them. Federal and state governments are not only ramping up virus surveillance, they are on the look-out for those that would take advantage of the situation. Here are some examples to watch out for:
Hoosiers are urged to be on alert for phishing scams or fraudulent emails, especially those pretending to be from the CDC or offering testing or vaccination, and verify that any charity seeking your assistance is legitimate before donating. Consumers who believe they may have been the victim of a scam can contact or file a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General’s Office.
