Home Care Program
Home Care Program
Sea Mar Home Care Program provides non-medical assistance to aging individuals and those with disabilities living in their homes in King County for all income levels.

Home care workers do everything from housework, grocery shopping, laundry and dish washing to personal care such as dressing, bathing and help transferring from beds.
Home care assistance may only be just a few hours a day, or 24 hours a day. Sea Mar Home Care brings affordable, personal care every day, sustaining those who are served with dignity in the home they cherish.

In collaboration with the Sea Mar Latino Senior Information and Assistance Program, Sea Mar Home Care assists elders in accessing and receiving social and health services through ongoing case management, support and referrals.
