Walla Walla County 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 Walla Walla County:

Southeast Washington Aging and Long Term Care – Walla Walla County

The SE Washington Aging & Long Term Care Council of Governments is a regional governmental agency that provides a coordinated series of services for older adults living in several South East Washington counties, including Walla Walla County. The organization offers resources, referrals, case management and free support for elderly adults, seniors with disabilities and their family members.

Washington Aging and Long-Term Support Administration

The Washington Aging and Long-Term Support Administration is a government agency funded by the state of Washington that assists elderly adults and their families in finding health resources, in-home care services, Medicaid coordination and nursing assistance. Its services include helping seniors find state benefits programs that will subsidize the cost of their food, living and medical needs. One example of this is the Aged Blind or Disabled (ABD) Program of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, which offers health coverage for seniors 65 years or older who have income below that of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) standard.

Its services include basics such as free hot lunches daily from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an adult day care center for assisting families caring for an elderly individual. Among its services are dance classes, exercise, digital photography and basic computer aptitude programs, free 30-minute legal counsel sessions and free clinics for blood pressure testing, physicals and foot care. There are also monthly social dinner events and a volunteer program for matching seniors with organizations in need of their skill sets.

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.
