Thanks so much for the info!! My moms pretty much full care. I know the program there is similar to Oregon's. Just havent had the best of luck finding quality people with agencies OR the registry here. Hoping for much bettee once we move. Id like to go back to work. If I can't find people who will show up or wont be late or a center that offers a full day program I'll just have to keep takong care of her full time. Thanks for the assist.

Hi,

NorthShore Senior Center, in Bothell, has a really nice day program. A person cannot necessarily go every day though, because they seem to serve different clientele on different days. They have a van, but it only goes to the north of Seattle.

Full Life runs day programs in a couple of locations (one on the south side and one on the north side). The Access bus system will transport qualified clients.

There is a place in Edmonds, maybe it is called Rosewood, which took drop-in clients at an hourly rate. It is a memory care facility.

You don't say what kind of in-home help you require. Seniors Helping Seniors offers companion help, I liked it because it is small and personal. But there are many agencies. There is a family caregiver assistance program in the Seattle area, you should be able to find it with an online search. The purpose is to support the caregiver.

Thanks for the links. Do you have any experience dealing with home care agencies or caregivers from the state registry? As far as reliability?
