Seattle Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Seattle:

Meals

Address: Not listed
Phone Number: (206) 684-0660

The City of Seattle funds the Aging and Disability Services programs, including the congregate meal and home meal delivery services. The meal services are provided through a network of nonprofit community-based organizations throughout the city. Volunteers serve meals at eleven congregate meals centers to thousands of seniors over the age of 60 every day. There is a small charge requested for each meal, but nobody will be turned away if they can’t pay. Nutrition education classes are offered after or before the meals to help seniors learn how to prepare basic meals for themselves. There is a home delivery service for seniors who are homebound. Seniors who cannot prepare a meal for themselves receive a hot meal each day from Monday to Friday and a pack of freezer meals for the weekend.  

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 700 5th Avenue, Suite 5700, Seattle, WA 98104
Phone Number: (206) 684-0244

The Weatherization Assistance Program is a system funded by the federal government and the state of Washington. The aim of the program is to assist low-income households with reducing their utility bills by making the home more energy-efficient. Priority is given to seniors over the age of 60 and households with very young children. All of the services provided by the program, including air sealing, insulation, energy audits and furnace repairs or replacements, are free of charge.

Sound Generations

Address: 2208 Second Avenue, Suite 100, Seattle, WA 98121
Phone Number: (206) 448-5757

Sound Generations is a nonprofit organization that has been providing a range of services to seniors in the area since 1967. Services offered include Meals on Wheels home food delivery, community dining programs, Hyde Shuttle senior transport, fitness classes and health management programs. Additionally, the organization provides legal assistance, minor home repairs and caregiver support services at no charge. The majority of the services offered by the group do not incur any charges, but donations are always appreciated. Some of the programs require an application to establish age and income eligibility.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
