About Us

For over 40 years, Senior Services for South Sound’s mission is to improve the quality of life for people as they age by offering a wide range of programs for seniors and their families, addressing the ever-changing demands of our community and senior concerns. ¬†Our progressive and comprehensive services programs include Brighter Days Adult Day Program, Meals on Wheels, Senior Community Dining, Senior Transportation, Care Connection Caregiver Registry, Supportive Services, Health and Wellness Programs, Adult Learning, and Independent Living Programs. We are proud to provide dozens of activities at the Virgil Clarkson Lacey Senior Center and Olympia Senior Center and eight nutritional locations.

People as they age are empowered and engaged in the community, valued for their wisdom and experience, and have a positive sense of self-worth.
