Join the Healthy Aging Partnership
Healthy Aging Partnership (HAP) members are organizations and individuals who are passionate about serving older adults. We are committed to educating our community about the needs of older adults and caregivers, and the resources available to assist them. We foster healthy choices for all people as we age. We help older adults live longer, happier, and healthier lives.
HAP’s theme for 2018 and beyond is “Creating Age-Friendly Communities.” We celebrate Older Americans Month in May and sponsor or co-sponsor numerous events that promote networking and community dialogue about community needs, such as Engaging Aging—the Age Friendly Seattle women’s equity forum last fall. Several years ago, we coordinated film screenings and hosted a film festival that featured locally produced short movies about healthy aging.
Aging services providers are welcome to join HAP, which meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:00–10:30 a.m. in the Lillian Rice Building, 2208 Second Avenue, in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.
