Aging and Independent Living
We believe our communities are richer when seniors and people with disabilities 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. We offer meal programs and holiday gifts to homebound seniors, home care services and companionship, and offer them opportunities to give back to their communities. We also have programs that support caregivers who help our elderly and disabled neighbors maintain their independence.
We are increasing awareness about dementia and offer supportive services by being a leader in creating a dementia friendly Pierce County. We offer three new dementia friendly services including Dementia Friends, Memory Ensemble, and Opening Minds through Art (OMA). Learn more on our Tacoma page.
It is estimated that there are 18,000 people living with dementia in Pierce County. We are helping create a Dementia Friendly Pierce County by offering free information sessions on how to become a Dementia Friend. Participants will learn what dementia is, what it’s like to live with the disease, and tips for communicating with people who have dementia.
