Island Senior Resources seeks to share the joys and help meet the challenges of aging in our Island County communities by providing integrated programs and services.

Resources and Coaching

Free assistance to help clients identify, understand, and access the services they need to live their best life. 

Laura’s savings were depleted while caring for her husband, and Social Security no longer covered her rent and food. She skipped meals to cover expenses until she met with our Resources and Coaching staff.  We helped her apply for food benefits, receive Meals on Wheels, and obtain subsidies that waived her Medicare Part B and D premiums. Now she feels safe, eats well, and enjoys new friends thanks to ISR and people who care.

Our Resource Specialists provide information about programs, services, and resources to older adults, and those who care for them. We support the independence, dignity, and health of older adults and caregivers.
