We Love Packers!

Volunteer “packers” at work in our Meals on Wheels kitchen. In this video you will see them pack over 300 low-sodium frozen meals.

If you (and your friends) would like to be volunteer “packers” please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Penni Richter, at 735-1911 or email prichter@seniorliferesources.org.

Providing Dignity, Care, and Nourishment one person at a time.

 

Senior Life Resources Northwest’s mission is to preserve and enhance the quality of life at home, with dignity and care.

By providing an array of professional supportive care services, we offer an alternative to institutional care for those who live in Southeastern Washington State.

Home Care Services

Provides trained and licensed staff that help with personal care, transportation, errands, homemaking, medication reminders, and respite for family caregivers. Our service area includes Yakima, Kittitas, Benton, Franklin, Columbia, Garfield, Asotin, and Walla Walla counties. We also serve the Yakama Indian Nation and Nez Perce county in Idaho.

What is the Community Saying?

“WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOUR HOME CARE PROVIDERS for their great care of my dad. My dad would often comment on how well he was treated by them. Also, they went beyond the call of duty with their care and they should be commended for their hard work. Thank you so much.”

“YOU GUYS SAVED MY LIFE! After my husband died I was worn out and underfed and weighed only 72 pounds. I couldn’t even put a sandwich together. Your meals literally saved me. I know I wouldn’t be here today if you hadn’t taken care of me.”

Although summer doesn’t officially end until September 22nd, I always view August as the last real month of summer, as the kids all return to school at the end of August or early September. Summer seems to go so quickly! In addition to staff and volunteers enjoying...
