Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities

The City of Seattle and the Seattle Human Services Department promote a high quality of life, independence and choice for older people and adults with disabilities.

In partnership with United Way and King County, we support services and programs that:

  • Improve the health and quality of life for seniors and adults with disabilities;
  • Connect seniors and adults with disabilities with helpful resources; and
  • Provide help and support for caregivers.

The Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens is the primary resource for City programs serving older adults and adults with disabilities living in Seattle. It provides an array of services including assistance with utility and other bills, employment resources, computer classes, and arts and special events. A unique program for adults with disabilities is the FLASH card (Fun Leisure Access Savings and Health) card, which provides discounts on some services and products.

Information & Assistance is available to elders, their family members and others who care for them through Aging and Disability Services. Seattle programs for younger adults and individuals with disabilities are most easily accessed through the 211 Community Information Line, by dialing 211 or 1-800-621-4636.
