    Aljoya located on Mercer Island is a beautiful senior facility in the heart of town, convenient for seniors to walk to nearby shops, parks, and the waterfront.

    Aljoya has a special place in my heart, several years ago, my best friend’s father become a recluse after his wife passed. The decision to move him to Aljoya was an excellent choice. He started to come of his shell and began socializing and getting out more, and he loved the staff and hung out with a couple guys that also resided there. When my girlfriend and I would visit, he would take us all around and show us the fun things he got to do and all the great friends he had made. For the first couple of years he was jubilant and kept busy, his health did decline and the staff was fantastic he was able to get the increased support that he needed.

    The staff at Aljoya is fantastic and always patient, supportive, and kept good communication with this family. I have the highest respect for the staff, and the quality of care that they provide. Staff takes the time to be sure the residents are well served, are responsive and always attentive to make residents comfortable.

    There is always something to for residents to do, from socializing with the facilities many parties like root beer floats night or fine wine & cheese, floor parties, or theme oriented parties are lots of fun. Her dad loved to play chess he found a great partner and was so excited for their chess dates every Wednesday.

    I highly recommend Aljoya it is an excellent alternative for aging loved ones providing a place for comfort, warmth and best of all a place where they can feel alive and enjoy life. The food isn’t too bad either they made some of his favorites.
    If you’re considering Aljoya, I recommend it, the staff alone makes this place a great place and give it the warm and inviting feeling when you walk through the doors. Combined with its location and amenities, Aljoya is a great choice.

    My mother lived at Aljoya for over 3 years. The staff and the entire environment were great. It was a very classy and well kept up spot to live at. The staff knew everyone’s name, including mine. I would highly recommend Aljoya. The food was very nice, there was a pool and Jacuzzi to use as well. The parking was very easy.
