Island Senior Resources has a new home for north island services! For at least the last 25 years, we have served the Oak Harbor community from offices inside the Center in Oak Harbor. Now we have our new facility located at 917 E. Whidbey Ave. Oak Harbor, WA 98277. We haven’t gone far; we are in the portable building just behind the Center. Our Oak Harbor office is not taking walk-ins at this time, in an abundance of caution related to COVID.
What services does Island Senior Resources provide in north Whidbey?
- The largest number of our Meals on Wheel clients are located in Oak Harbor and north Whidbey.
- We have dedicated Aging & Disabilities staff, Family Caregiver Support staff, and COPES Case Management staff in Oak Harbor serving north island residents every day.
- Our Medicaid Transportation services are in such high demand in Oak Harbor that we need more volunteer drivers. (if you are interested, contact Carol Colar, Medical Transportation Director at firstname.lastname@example.org – some eligibility requirements must be met, and drivers receive a mileage reimbursement).
- We offer support groups, SHIBA Medicare advising, and social security classes, all via Zoom.
If you know of a group that would benefit from having one of our staff or board members introduce our services, please contact our Community Education Specialist, Robin Bush, at email@example.com.
