About PNA Village

PNA Village Mission: Empowering people to remain in their homes and neighborhoods while staying active and engaged as they age.

The PNA Village program is an “aging in place” program which helps people to remain in their homes and neighborhoods while staying active and engaged as they age. The PNA Village encompasses three primary program areas:

Network of Helpers – Help with small tasks and larger projects from neighborly volunteers. All PNA Village staff and volunteers will have passed a background check. Examples of help may include: yard maintenance, minor home repairs, transportation, shopping assistance or help with pets. PNA Village members may also serve in a volunteer capacity, sharing their abilities with other village members.

Information & Referrals – Assistance in finding the resources to meet your changing needs with a preferred vendor list. Each vendor has been vetted by the PNA Village, based on adopted PNA Village standards. Examples include: plumbers, electricians, painters, dog walkers, tech support or lawn mowing services. Selection of the service provider and payment for the service is the responsibility of the member.

Community Building Activities – Programs and events to help village members stay connected to their community while making new friends. Examples may include: conversation groups, educational programs, information about issues of concern to members or book and movie discussions.

Who can join?

PNA Village serves persons living between 50th Street and 105th Street, and Aurora Ave to 15th Ave NW. Click here for a map, highlighting our catchment area.)

CPR/Stroke Classes for Seniors

Lear Hands-Only CPR flier

Of the many people who experience major medical emergencies each year, a number of the victims do not receive the help they need because their emergencies are not obvious—to themselves or passersby.

EMS has designed a free, non-certifiable course especially for seniors* to help them recognize the signs of stroke, learn hands-only CPR, and learn what to say to 911 dispatchers when someone is experiencing a medical emergency.

There will be a free, one-hour training at Balllard Community Center on Oct. 23 from 10:30-11:30 am.

Ballard Community Center
6020 28th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107
October 23, 2017
10:30 – 11:30 AM

Please consider taking the time to attend this class. You could be the difference in someone’s life.

* Notes: This class is intended for those 60 and older, but you will not be turned away if you attend.  This is a FREE class. No preregistration required. Just show up and sign in when you arrive. If you cannot attend one of the classes offered in October, there will be others offered in locations around Seattle through winter and spring of 2018.
