Services at the Center

Community Lunch at the Center

Lunch is served 4 days a week at noon. Join us for a well-balanced and hearty lunch for seniors prepared by our esteemable cooks, Kate & Jamila. Lunch includes salad, a main course, vegetable side and tempting dessert. We have vegetarian meals on occasion. And we offer takeout. The suggested donation is $4.50 but no one is turned away for lack of funds. You may purchase a 10-lunch punch card for $40. Join us in this community event where we have frequent parties and holiday celebrations.

Ride the Care-a-Van

We will pick you up at your door and bring you to lunch at noon. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday our “personality plus driver”, Joe will pick you up in our 10-passenger fully accessible van. Enjoy lunch and we will take you home again. There's no charge for the service. Granny's Attic has generously funded the program. Of course, you'll want to buy lunch when you get here ($4.50 for lunch). Call the Center at 206-463-5173 to schedule your ride. We will give you all the information when you call.

Neighbor to Neighbor

Help is available for on-island transportation, shopping, light housework, even yard work. We can also provide occasional respite care, telephone check-in calls, social visits and other services, all provided by volunteers. These trained and qualified volunteers help seniors 55+ to remain in their homes as long as safely possible. This service is for seniors who are economically disadvantaged and living on a fixed income. Call 206-463-5173 for all the information.

Bluebird Medical Transportation

Off-island transportation for medical appointments is available. The driver will pick you up at your home and take you to your medical appointment, wait for you and return you home again. This service is free of charge, generously funded by Granny's Attic and other members of the Vashon community. Your payment of the ferry fare is appreciated. Bluebird Medical Transportation is available 8 am to 2 pm Monday through Friday. Call 206-463-5173 for all the information.

Here are more resources. You can also pick up a brochure at the Center.
