At Seniors Helping Seniors® Shoreline, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owners, Kim and Tom Stege, firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Shoreline, North Seattle, Edmonds, and surrounding communities.
Tom and Kim Stege chose to start their Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services agency as a second career path together and as a way to give back to their community. They were inspired by the values and mission of Seniors Helping Seniors® and believe strongly in the model of matching active seniors with seniors who need a little help. The couple, relating to their own parents' desire to remain in their homes as they age, are excited to be able to deliver this unique business model and exceptional caregiving mission of Seniors Helping Seniors® to their neighbors in Shoreline and surrounding cities.

About Our Founders
