Who We Are

The Snohomish County Advisory Council on Aging, mandated by the Older Americans Act of 1965, was established by Snohomish County as the Advisory Council to the County Executive and to the County's Human Services Department, Aging and Disability Services, Long Term Care and Aging (LTCA).

What We Do

 The purpose of the Council on Aging is to advise, assist, and advocate for older persons and those adults with disabilities in Snohomish County. We do this by:
  • Keeping the County Executive and other elected officials apprised of the concerns and needs of the older populations;
  • Assisting and guiding the work of the Long Term Care and Aging group in fulfilling its stated missions; and supporting ongoing evaluation of program services; and policy involved in the implementation of the Snohomish County Area Plan on Aging.

Happy New Year!


Albert Einstein is purported to have said, “the more you learn, the less you know.” As we get older, I think many of us agree this is true; I have also found, however, that recognizing how much there is to know has inspired me to want to learn more.  


As we head into 2022, we will have the opportunity to learn and grow in ways that many of us probably can’t even imagine as we sit here in January. On a national level, NASA recently launched the James Webb Telescope, which can see far further into space than any telescope before with resolution that is unprecedented. NASA says that “Webb will reveal new and unexpected discoveries and help humankind understand the origins of the universe, as well as our place in it.” Undoubtedly, as much as we ultimately learn from Webb, many more questions will arise, spurring further human exploration and ingenuity.

I hope we can each enter 2022 with a willingness to ask questions, learn from each other, practice compassion and empathy, realizing that as much as we know, there is always something more we can learn. 


Wishing you each a year full of wonder, joy, laughter, friends, family, and whatever else brings happiness and meaning to your life.
