Huntington Senior Care Network
Huntington Senior Care Network is a nationally recognized not-for-profit
program that has helped older adults and adults with disabilities and
their families remain healthy and independent since 1984. We are a department
of Pasadena’s Huntington Hospital, a 619-bed nonprofit community
hospital that provides a full range of medical services from basic health
care to highly specialized programs.
Our community-based team includes over 30 staff and additional volunteers
and students. Together we serve more than 600 community members with the
ultimate goal of helping seniors live safely in their homes.
We recently moved to a new home on the Huntington Hospital campus. Our
upgraded office space further supports the work we do to help our community’s
older adults, adults with disabilities and family caregivers remain healthy
and independent. We look forward to continuing to serve you for years to come.
