Elders are fully treasured as an integral and contributing part of our vibrant, caring community where all of us are comfortable, connected, useful, and respected.


Our mission is to enable older residents of Central Seattle to participate in an intergenerational community that shares knowledge, experience, and services with each other so living is easier and more joyful.

We do this by providing, vetting, and recommending resources so adults can remain in their homes for as long as they choose.  We offer members a harmonious blend of health and in-home services, shared social and cultural activities, and community engagement_all designed to foster belonging, security, and contribution.
