Gencare Renton at the lodge is located in Renton close to all downtown Renton has to offer. The building itself sits on a hill and looks just like a lodge. The building is clean; furniture is a little worn but is clean. I met the nursing staff they are attentive and friendly. The facility offers residents Whole Life Promise Program The intent is great but the monthly calendar is redundant and although they offer some nice outings it is the something all month.
They do have several on-site things to keep residents busy, I liked the theatre room Thelma and Louise was playing when I was there. They have a billiards room. The computer room had a few residents when I visited. There is plenty outdoor area to walk and sit and enjoy the outside. Residents can partake in gardening as there are plenty of raised garden beds. The grounds itself are quite large so there are plenty of options to walk and be outdoors.
I like that the rooms were all bright and everything seemed so happy.
Pets are welcome with a one-time pet deposit.
There is an elevator making it easy for residents who can’t get up and down stairs.
The dining area and food are pretty good they seem to have a good selection as well a gluten free menu. I ate pizza and salad it was quite tasty. There is an area for residents to get beverages throughout the day.
My favorite is the area with the fireplace it is so cozy and inviting. There is the library and it has a lot of books more so than in other facilities I have been to.
They provide two meals a day. Apartments are nice the two bedroom cottages are free standing and quiet costly starting at $3500.00 monthly. The studio and one bedroom are good sized and nicely furnished.
They do provide assisted care and have 24 hour staff on-site. But it is limited care from what the staff said.
Overall this is a very nice facility, clean and a friendly caring staff, plenty for residents to do, even though there is a lot of redundancy with the activities.
The Ballard Landmark is located on a busy street with a shared parking area with a Health Club. The back of the building is on a lovely quiet street that on Sundays becomes part of a 3 block farmers market. The saltwater swimming pool area is heated and feels like a sauna so no cold shivers when you get out of the water. They even have a lift for the residents that use a wheelchair. The community recently removed their age requirements because of the number of disabled persons that were not seniors wanting to move into the community. I went for Mardi Gras and they had a live fais deaux deaux band and dancing. I was very impressed with a young man who was a resident and completely blind, that did not stop him from dancing with another resident though. The apartments all come with a stackable washer and dryer. The views south toward the Ballard locks was not stupendous, but OK. The residents were very friendly and I was impressed with their menu posting outside the "restaurant" on a small chalkboard. It looked like a fancy Parisian restaurant with Prix-Fixe dining. The community is private pay only. Because of the location on a bus route, the availability of parking, the quiet back street with restaurants and brick a brak shops, the Sunday Farmers Market behind the building, and the closeness to the Ballard Locks, I was advised that the community was waitlist only to get in. Very very pricey community and worth every penny.
My mom has lived at The Village for 6 years now. She was hesitant at first to make a move from her house into a retirement community. It is a smaller community but has all the benefits of a larger community. It has a "homey" feel to it. The staff are all great and have been working here for many years! The residents are happy and the food is wonderful.
This building has a checkered past but has recently been acquired by Gencare. It is modest, clean, and has fairly large apartments with very wide doors (40") going into the apartments. A lot of first floor apartments, well priced, nice feel.
This is a very vibrant community with many active seniors and quite a wonderful neighborhood to live in. Walking distance many activities. The amenities here are wonderful. The caring staff is always thinking of creative ideas to keep the seniors actively involved, as well as a very high level of sincere care for their assisted living residents.
Gen Care Lifestyle fo Lynnwood is an older building with some large apartments. They have made some improvements to the building in the last several months. At this time, they are a Retirement Community that uses an outside Home Care to provide services to residents as needed. This is working for them, they are in the process of getting their Assisted Living license and will begin providing those services soon. They have a state of the art exercise and wellness program along with organic food choices. Most of the staff has been there a long time and are friendly and knowledgable. I would place a parent here.
This community is an urban village in many ways. Located in downtown Ballard it is relatively new and a wonderful addition to the housing options there. One of the focuses of this community is the food, which is primarily fresh and organic and prepared in a healthy way. The facilities are very nice, and they offer some moderate income apartments. Rates are very competitive.
One of the main features of this community is the indoor swimming pool. Lots of water exercise classes and special needs uses are common. The assisted living care is more on the light side with most residents not needing services. A very pleasent place to spend your time, with lots of shops and restaurants close by and places to stroll on those warm summer evenings.
A great place to live. it has everything a person or a couple would need. the food is excellent and made for a healthy long life with taste. The building is Perfectly placed in Ballard with the weekly farmers market at the back door. nice sidewalks to walk on and easy to get around. Truly the best place and environment to live. My mother loved it and was so happy with this place. the people are the icing on this cake. They are nice, warm and attentive. I wanted to move in myself and am considering it when my age permits.
The Lodge is an excellent facility with great staff who are warm and friendly. The facility is always clean and welcoming. As a family member - I am very happy that my Mother is there. The food is good, the activities are inviting, and the staff are wonderful.
I visited the Ballard Landmark during their Mardi Gras celebration and was extremely impressed with this lovely community! Walking into the lobby, I was greeted by friendly and professional staff, live zydeco music, and a very happy bunch of residents dancing and enjoying one another's company as well as some tasty food. It was obvious at the outset that the Ballard Landmark works hard to create a real sense of community and to make a diverse group of seniors (and some younger residents, too) feel at home and comfortable in their surroundings. By all accounts the team of managers and caregivers has been very successful. The Ballard Landmark seems a welcoming and caring place to call home.
They also have a great set of amenities, including a theater, a therapy pool, and a relationship with the nearby athletic club. Old Ballard is right at the community's doorstep, with a host of delicious restaurants as well the weekly farmer's market every weekend. The apartment unit that I saw, although small, was wheelchair accessible, cozy, and had large windows with a view of the water as well as a full kitchen. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a safe, lively, and supportive senior community.
I can't begin to say enough about the Ballard Landmark. I toured approximately a year ago on behalf of my newly retired parents (they are looking to move to a community with amenities in approx 5 years or so) and honestly, this community's perspective and absolute love and care for their residents brought tears to my eyes. Everything they do for their residents focuses on total care. Their 'Whole Life Living' program focuses on Mind, Body, and soul. What is not to love about that!? From their diverse menu focusing on organic, fresh, local, and in season meals (YUM!) to their volunteer opportunities, fitness classes (water aerobics, seriously sign ME up too!) and all the lovely field trips and outings they take (Tulip tour anyone?) I was totally sold. I also love the location...it's within walking distance of stores and restaurants and close to the bus line. The staff are amazing...everyone smiled and chatted with me. I could tell they truly enjoyed what they were doing and it was clear they care for the residents very much. The apartments are quite spacious with huge (I thought) bathrooms. I think my parents would definitely consider this community for their future. Thank you Ballard Landmark for setting the stage for what senior living is all about.
The Ballard Landmark is one of the most wonderful retirement apartments I have ever seen. Immaculate inside and out. I was visiting a friend that has a 1 bedroom apartment in the building. The apartment for the price was amazing. Big windows that overlook the Ballard Locks. Full kitchen and a really good sized bathroom that had lots of space. A convenient washing machine and dryer was in the apartment. The community has a full gym with very "high tech" work out machines. They also have a salt water pool that is indoors and heated. There is a beauty salon and barber shop on the ground floor and a rear exit to the street side that has wonderful little restaurants and shops. On Sunday's there is a farmers market on the same street. My friend told me that the community provides meals, transportation, activities, utilities, and flat linen laundering. Considering the cost of food, utilities, home taxes, gardening costs, etc., this would be a great option to owning your own home. I inquired about any type of age restriction at the community with the receptionist and she advised me that there was none. Lucky for me! I'm only 55 and most places had restrictions of 62 and over.
