In 2018, West Health and The SCAN Foundation launched We Stand With Seniors… Will You? to shine a light on the growing challenges faced by California seniors and their families in accessing high-quality, affordable healthcare, dental care and supportive services.
The We Stand With Seniors… Will You? nonpartisan, public awareness and education campaign focuses on specific challenges affecting seniors and their families and the cost to the state if these challenges are not addressed. Keep up with #StandWithSeniors on social media via Facebook @WeStandWithSeniors and Twitter @WeStandWSeniors.
Solely funded by philanthropists Gary and Mary West, West Health includes the nonprofit and nonpartisan Gary and Mary West Health Institute and Gary and Mary West Foundation in San Diego, and the Gary and Mary West Health Policy Center in Washington, D.C. These organizations are working together toward a shared mission dedicated to lowering healthcare costs and enabling seniors to successfully age in place with access to high-quality, affordable health and support services that preserve and protect their dignity, quality of life and independence.
