As a community organization serving a vulnerable population, The Edmonds Senior Center makes the health and safety of its members and participants a priority. With the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19), we are taking careful preventative measures. Here’s how you can help:

-Stay home if you are sick. If you have or have had a fever, cough, or shortness of breath within the last 24 hours, please stay home.

-Notify us if you get covid-19. If you are confirmed to have covid-19 and have been to ESC recently, please let us know.

-Prevent the spread of germs. Wash hands often and well, cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, and avoid touching your face.

-Bear with us if cancellations or closures become necessary.

Our Seniors Need Your Help

During these times of uncertainty, due to Covid19, many of us are feeling anxious and are concerned for those most vulnerable, people  over 60 years old, and individuals with underlying health conditions. Many of our seniors are concerned about leaving the house. While many of our seniors have family and a large social support system, many do not. Our isolated seniors do not have family members and neighbors who are able to help them during these difficult times.


As the social worker at the Edmonds Senior Center (ESC), I get multiple phone calls a day from concerned seniors and their family members that live in other parts of the country.  The ESC staff, along with other community members, have been discussing ways to help this isolated  group of seniors.  We have decided that we can be a bridge that connects those that need help to those who would like to help.

One way our seniors need assistance is through physical tasks.  This could entail getting groceries, running errands, light yard work, and/or even taking  their garbage can out to the street. Our low-income seniors also need assistance with food and paying for medicine.  To assure safety we are taking two steps.  First, we conduct background checks for all volunteers. Second, we are in regular contact with Verdant Health Commission regarding safest practices to avoid  transmitting  the virus unintentionally.


If you need assistance or would like to offer assistance, please contact

Michelle Reitan at (425) 954-2523.  You may also email me .


Another way you can help is through financial assistance. We have established a  “Helping Hands Fund”. The contributions will be used to help purchase food and other needed items. If you would like to make a donation to our Helping Hands Fund please click this link.


Direct mail donations are also welcome by sending to PO Box 717,

Edmonds, WA 98020. Please indicate "Helping Hands Fund" on your check.


Even in less stressful times, seniors experience social isolation and loneliness. These experiences increase in times like these.  Remember to look out for the seniors within our community.  Please consider reaching out and checking in on them with a simple phone call or other friendly means to let them know you are thinking of, and caring for, them. Thank You!


Michelle Reitan, MSW

Re: In response to the COVID-19 Virus Edmonds Senior Center will suspend all Programs and Activities effective Thursday March 5, 2020


Earlier today Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers declared a State of Emergency in the County in response to the COVID-19 virus. The Edmonds Senior Center has decided out of an abundance of caution to suspend all programs and activities until further notice effective Thursday March 5. The Everett Senior Center closed earlier today.


Seniors are one of the highest at-risk groups. In consideration of our priority for member safety we believe this is the appropriate response. One of the factors in our decision is that unlike every other Senior Center in the County we are spread over 14 different transition locations, and thus are not in control of maintenance and custodial operations.  


We will monitor the situation continuously and keep you and the community informed. The administrative office will remain open and the Board and Committees will continue to function. 


Farrell Fleming, Executive Director



Please call the office with any questions and for updates at 425-774-5555 ext 104
