About For Senior’s Sake
Established in 2000, For Senior’s Sake is one organization with three entities, or facilities, that share a single mission: To provide high quality, well organized, collaborative care to senior’s who need every level of assistance with their activities of daily living, and done so in a clean, safe, residential "home" environment.
For Senior’s Sake, Inc. is owned and operated by Laura Cirves.
Laura is a Registered Nurse with a BS in Nutrition/Dietetics. She began her entrepreneurial career as a licensed hair dresser with a mobile hair service, “Hair on Wheels.” She visited a wide variety of homes and offices throughout Puget Sound, including about 50 adult family homes throughout King county.
Seeing the conditions in some of the adult family homes made her realize the need for better quality of care for the senior citizen population.
While obtaining her bachelors degree in nutrition the opportunity arose for Laura to purchase her own adult family home business. Laura bought the house, located in the Shoreline area, completely remodeled it and opened For Senior’s Sake, Inc. #1 in August of 2000.
Laura then decided to go to nursing school and became a registered nurse in 2005. In the meantime, she opened up two more homes all located in the same cul-de-sac.
Upon obtaining her RN license, Laura worked for a local hospital on the telemetry floor for about a year, but found she wanted closer relationships with the people she was caring for.
Laura trains and instructs her care givers with this same philosophy which has proven to build trust between the client, care giver and family.

"I enjoy the story of people’s lives and the journey that led them to my door. I want to know them personally, which is critical in giving day-to-day care for these fragile folks."
