Services Offered by Island Senior Resources
The later years of life treat each person differently. For some, health remains good, enabling them to participate in life fully and independently. Others are not so fortunate. Their lives tell a different, more fragile story.
Island Senior Resources serves as a hub and clearinghouse for information relative to seniors. We offer a wide range of services and invite you to explore this site thoroughly to become familiar with them. Here’s a brief overview of some of the main services:
Serves site-prepared meals at seven locations on Whidbey and Camano Islands. The Nutrition Program provides:
- Meals on Wheels (MOW) – delivers hot and frozen meals to homebound senior
- Liquid Nutrition (liquid nutritional products, i.e., Ensure)
- A Registered Dietitian for nutritional counseling and assistance.

Island Senior Resources owns and operates CamBey Apartments; a HUD subsidized 50-unit apartment community for seniors and disabled adults of independent living. If your need is for homecare, assisted living or long-term care, our Information and Assistance Specialists can advise you.
This is the front door to many other services. Its primary focus is to help link people age 60 and older and their families with the services and information they need to continue independent living. Case Management services are provided for low income seniors and adults with disabilities.
Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors program provides counseling to county citizens 18 years and older needing health care/insurance related information, including providing assistance with Medicare Part D-Prescription Medication Benefits.
Personal Care Services
We offer regular foot clinics and blood pressure screenings. We also keep a Job Bank, which lists names of people with a wide variety of useful skills that can help you do almost anything. Just ask for what you need!
Another way we advocate for seniors is by offering exposure to professionals that can supply much-needed information. Those services include a notary, Social Security information, legal info, Medicaid assistance, and income tax help.
