Elders

Our S7elálexw (old people) have always been the holders of wisdom and teachers of the generations to come.  They are our most valuable resource.  Our program works hard to help them continue sharing their gifts.


Samish Elders and Caregiver Program:

The Elders/Caregiver program provides a healthy meal and social interaction for elders five days a week. Lunch is served Monday-Thursday and breakfast on Fridays.  Wednesdays, we gather earlier in the day for crafting and socializing.  Wednesday is also when individual health screenings, assessments, and medical counseling are offered by our professional staff.
