Sammamish Seniors is a virtual place for all adults 50+ in Sammamish, Washington to gather online or in a physical location to enhance their overall health by making new friends and reconnecting with old ones.

We come together through community walks or hikes, visit after caring for a loved one, meet for lively book and movie discussions, educational and community speakers, cognitive skills games, virtual cooking/nutrition classes and simply chatting over a cup of coffee. These are a few of the many possibilities that help them maintain optimal health, making Sammamish a healthier city.

Action
is Needed:
We Can
Do This!

A healthy older population in Sammamish will benefit from intentional activities because Sammamish Seniors will help address their emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs. These needs are pressing, now more than ever.

The pandemic has taken its toll on every age cohort, with older adults being especially isolated without school or workplace contacts. Loneliness is acute among seniors of all ages. Every area adjacent to or near Sammamish has a Senior Center. As one of the highest income areas in Washington State, it is possible for Sammamish to have a permanent place where its older adults can gather in a safe and healthy environment and it’s needed! Data shows the need for a permanent gathering place in Sammamish for older adults. Resource: 2018 Sammamish Needs Assessment report.

FUNDING & SUPPORT
ARE NEEDED

Funding sources to establish Sammamish Seniors permanently will seed an organization that can currently serve the generation that founded this city, the community where older adults – especially the low income: 669 individuals <$20,000 per year or less; 1,117 <$40,000 per year or less – and those who love them, are empowered to choose and develop more joyful, healthful, and meaningful lives. Funding sources to establish Sammamish Seniors permanently will seed an organization that can currently serve the generation that founded this city, the Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964), and lay a strong foundation for Generation X (born 1965-1979). As the city ages, so will its population base. Those who are 50+ now will be the beneficiaries of a vibrant program in just ten years! The Xennials (born 1979-1983) and Millennials (born 1984-1996) will inherit the long-term benefits of today’s efforts.
