Welcome to NorthWest Senior and Disability Services
Update in Response to COVID-19
At NWSDS, the health and safety of those we serve, our volunteers, and our employees are our top priority.
In response to COVID-19, NWSDS is following guidance from the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, and local government. All of our locations are currently open but with limited staff on site. Most things will not require you to come to an office and can be handled by phone so we ask that you call your local office first to find out the best way to meet your needs.

Because the information regarding COVID-19 vaccination is changing rapidly, we encourage you to visit the state’s website for COVID-19 vaccination or your individual county health departments where you live or work in Clatsop, Marion, Polk, Tillamook, or Yamhill Counties.
