About the Program

Care Connection provides people of all ages with an affordable, trusted and reliable place to turn to when needing a variety of assistance – companionship, personal care support, dementia-specific needs, personal assistance, end of life care and more. When you hire a caregiver or housekeeper through the Care Connection registry, you receive a qualified, skilled Independent Provider who works directly for you, not a franchise or corporation. Our registry of Independent Providers are screened and interviewed, to ensure you are receiving the safe support you or your loved one needs.

As a nonprofit program of Senior Services for South Sound, profits go back to helping seniors with our programs and services!  Consultation services are provided to individuals and their families who may have needs other than in-home care, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, planning for long-term care, support for family caregivers and questions about other community resources. Cost of care is determined during home assessment visit. For more information, contact April Slee at 360.586.4491 or care@southsoundseniors.org.
