Navigating the Elder Care Maze

“I need to find assisted living for my mom”
“My father-in-law doesn’t drive and can’t use Metro.
He needs information on transportation options”
“I’m providing regular care for my adult son, who has a disability. I need help! Who do I call?!

Do those questions sound familiar? Finding help for an older adult or a loved one can be a daunting task. Fortunately, two local programs provide guidance in navigating the maze of community and government programs:

Senior Information and Assistance (1-888-4ELDERS) is the go-to number for anyone age 60+ and their family members who needs help identifying resources that meet their needs.

The King County Caregiver Support Network provides guidance to unpaid primary caregivers of adults of any age who are unable to care for themselves, typically family members or close friends or neighbors.
