Seniors and individuals living with disabilities thrive when they are able to remain in their own homes, surrounded by a community of friends and family.
Impact NW’s Seniors & Adults with Disabilities Services program gives clients the tools and support they need to be healthy, happy, and active, and to live at home safely.
There are many ways we engage with seniors and adults with disabilities. Our “Friendly Visitors” program connects community volunteers with isolated seniors through weekly visits to provide companionship and support. Our Senior Guardian Assistance Program (“Senior GAP”) offers money management services for seniors who are otherwise self-sufficient but struggle to manage their own financial affairs. Congregate Housing Services meets the needs of seniors and adults with disabilities living in public housing through in-home care coordination, transportation to shopping and medical appointments, money management and legal services, and on-site meal services. Impact NW provides more than 14,000 rides to clients who need help getting to medical appointments or performing errands. And our Southeast Multicultural Senior Center is a hub of activity where seniors gather for meals, games, celebrations and friendship.
Impact NW’s programs take a holistic view of healthy aging, addressing each client’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. We are committed to helping our region’s most vulnerable seniors and adults with disabilities access resources that enable them to remain in their homes successfully, while still being able to participate in the community in which they live.
Annually, more than 1,500 individuals are supported by Impact NW’s Seniors & Adults with Disabilities Services programs.
