King County is investing in programs specifically designed to improve the quality of life for our local seniors and their families. Thanks to King County voters, we are making healthy aging a priority, and the support we’re providing for these senior centers will significantly increase access to services for older adults throughout the region.

Older Adults FAQ

For purposes of funding under the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy, older adults and seniors are individuals 55 years of age or older.

A Caregiver is a person who, without pay, cares for or supervises another person who requires such care or supervision due to disability, chronic illness or, in the case of a senior, age-related decline.

Government-provided benefits or financial assistance provided directly to a person for being a caregiver are not considered pay for purposes of service eligibility.
