Message from Umbrella:

As an organization specifically dedicated to helping adults 60+ live better lives at home, we have been closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and continually evaluating how we can best serve you.  

In order to protect our thousands of Members and Neighbors—and all of the people living in the areas we serve— we are postponing all nonessential Umbrella jobs until April 1st .

Doing this allows us to turn our full focus to helping each Member get the items and services you need right now, in the most affordable way, using Umbrella Neighbors or local services in your area (while minimizing contact). You can read more below, and  visit our coronavirus response page for more details.

Umbrella can help you get the items and services you need during the coronavirus outbreak .
Groceries & supplies
Do you have everything you need in order to stay in your home safely (food, household supplies, pet supplies)? We will help you arrange the most affordable option—whether it’s an Umbrella Neighbor or by ordering groceries online on your behalf. 

Medication pickup
If you need prescription or over-the-counter medications to be picked up or delivered, we will find the most affordable option to get these to you (in many cases, free delivery is available).

Essential transportation
If you have a doctor’s appointment (and your doctor approves that you should go out in order to make the appointment), we can arrange transportation for you. 

Special requests & emergencies
If a plumbing, electrical, or other issue comes up that would make it unsafe for you to stay in your home, please call us and we will help you get the service you need.   
Additionally, to minimize contact, Umbrella Neighbors will not take your signature at the end of a job. You will still receive an email receipt for your automatic credit card charge as usual. Are there other ways we can help? Please call, text, or email us to let us know.

Be well,
Julie from Umbrella
