Advocates for Bay Area seniors this week will convene around a vexing social problem: As the number of elderly living in poverty grows, safety net programs from Meals on Wheels to basic medical coverage continue to shrink. Wednesday’s Bay Area Senior Health Policy Forum will bring a busload of seniors from Santa Clara County together with state legislators and federal officials, Gray Panthers, doctors, affordable housing advocates and social workers.
