Aging and Independent Living
We believe our communities are richer when seniors and people with disabilities of all ethnic backgrounds are part of the social fabric.
We provide aging adults and people with disabilities with the services they need to live engaged and independent lives.
Serving Pierce and Kitsap Counties
A variety of elder services are available through our South Puget Sound offices in Tacoma and Bremerton. We offer a variety of programs aimed at making the lives of our senior population happier and heathier. One of the many ways is through our activities serving those living with dementia, traumatic brain injuries, and other cognitive challenges, as well as their care partners and loved ones, regardless of age.

Understanding Community Priorities Assessment
The Understanding Community Priorities Assessment was conducted by the LCSNW Aging and Independent Program (formerly the Senior Services Program) that surveyed several populations and communities across King County for three major language groups: Ukrainian and Russian speakers (Slavic communities), Arabic speakers (primarily Iraqi communities) and Pashto and Dari speakers (primarily Afghan communities). Funding for this project was provided by the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy (VSHSL) of King County, Washington. With our strong connections to those language groups through a network of services and partnerships, our aim was to gather direct feedback on their needs, wants, success, challenges and hopes, to help prioritize future resources and services that align with these communities’ voices and reflect local priorities and values. After surveying 100 people, we developed a report based on the data we received. The report is available in Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Russian, and Ukrainian.
