    Washington Oakes is a very nice place and feels very homey. We like it and are going to move there. The person who showed us around was very good, answered all our questions, and introduced us to a few of the residents. It was a very good tour. We enjoyed it very much and kept in touch with them.

    This is a very special community that excels at fun and enjoying life. If you want to, the manager Tad will even take you Salmon fishing with him! Great people, great atmosphere, and great fun. What more can you ask for?

    Washington Oaks is a beautiful facility, which has incredible dining, fabulous activities, and a team comprised of caregivers that are compassionate, caring, and dedicated to outstanding service! The entire staff goes above and beyond to ensure the atmosphere is warm, friendly and fun for not only the residents, but their family and friends as well! There are many services, activities and events provided for all levels. The caring staff at Washington Oaks does everything they can to create the highest quality environment. I would highly recommend Washington Oaks for retirement living or assisted care, whichever you or your family may need.

    Washington Oaks is a wonderfully-run lovely home for its residents. Every staff member I have met appears genuinely happy with their work, are kind and professional, provide warm service-with-a-smile to the residents and credit it all to their Manager. Tad, as he is called by all, is the quintessential professional greeting residents with a smile, addressing each person by his/her name and is sincerely concerned about their welfare and happiness. His high standards and style of management are reflected in every area of the facility from its upkeep and appearance, dining room and food service, special events and weekly activities to the wellbeing of the residents and staff. I would wholeheartedly recommend Washington Oaks to anyone seeking assisted living or retirement living where they can feel and be at home and thrive.

    Wow what a welcoming community. From the moment you walk in the door you can feel the excitement and warmth. What really made this community stand out for me was the location. It sits in a quiet neighborhood away from the main road. My mother really likes to walk and this location offers a safe area for her to enjoy those rare sunny days.

    Everytime you walk thru the door at Washington Oakes you are greeted with a smile. All of the employees are warm, caring and truly have a passion for the industry. The environment is warm and inviting and the food is exceptional with a wide variety to chose from. You can order breakfast for dinner if your heart desires or get a fantastic Monte Cristo sandwich, fresh fish or salad. The residents are able to enjoy a vast array of activities and ameneties throughout. Eveyone from the General Manager to the housekeeping staff strive to make the community the best home for the residents. As a placement specialist, I've had many families chose Washington Oakes when they orginally were looking in other areas because the people are fantastic!

    My friend lives at Washington Oaks and from the multiple times that I've visited and socialized with her at the regular events that they host, I've noticed that this place is more than just a safe environment to the members of the community, it's a home. The patience and enthusiasm that so-easily comes to their staff is surely what brings all of these vastly different people together as one community. The people that I've been introduced to thus far that live in the building were welcoming and also seemed to be having a great time at the events and the many different activities that they hosted. Over-all the place has a very comfortable atmosphere from the well-maintained grounds to the cozy design of their rooms. I had the pleasure of meeting Tad, a long-time manager there, and was blown away by the loyalty and respect that he had for the residents that stay there. This isn't the cheapest place to stay but for the quality of care, dining, and luxuries that are available daily to their residents I would consider there prices a steal! I'm very grateful to this community and their devoted staff for the dedication they have to making each of their residents feel like this is not just a home, but their home.

    Washington Oakes in Everett WA is a very nice place and definitely a great place for seniors to live. I was there visiting a friend, Betty, and I was shown all around the place and also had lunch there too. Their food staff was definitely helpful and the food was great. When I toured the place I was surprised with the accomodations how spacious they are and the staff that we ran into while I was taking the tour was very gracious and helpful. The price is great too and safe. The location of the place is nice too and not too far from places. I am definitely thinking of Washington Oakes when I am ready to move into a senior place and will definitely give Washington Oakes name to my friends that are looking for a place now and in the future

    This community is exceptionally a warm and friendly community. You walk thru the front door and immediately feel like you are in the living room of your own home. Not a big arena where one might feel a bit overwhelmed and cold. Just warm and fuzzy. You are greeted with smiles and someone insisting on helping or directing you whereever you need to go. The community was very clean and going to the bathroom was not a bad experience, but a good one. Everything was clean and the amenitites always seemed close by. Experiencing meals there was one of my favorite, home cooking and restaurant quality all in one bite! Even better you dont have to worry about preparation,shopping or doing the dishes. Also, I enjoyed being able to have coffee and something sweet at anytime. The staff there is professional and very knowledgeable in the care of the elderly. I felt a sense of peace knowing that my friend would be taken care of and her needs met. Also knowing there is a RN and certified nursing assistants there around the clock made me at ease. They have activities that seem to fit just about anyone's preference and outings that have been enjoyed by my friend and myself. If I was older, I would move in tomorrow! Thank you.

    Well maintained community. Updated decor and dining room. Has a really nice Bistro, that is inviting and always stocked with goodies. The front desk staff and management team make you feel at home when walking in the front door. They are always friendly, helpful and very approachable. Very creative and well attended activity program. The food, presentation and portions served are outstanding. The wait staff go out of their way to ensure you have a good experience and have everything you want during your meal. The atmosphere is very upbeat and engauging. Residents seem to enjoy living there.

    Wa Oaks is a lovely retirement center. The grounds are manicured and the buildings are very well maintained. Everyone employed at Wa Oaks has a wonderful attitude, always smiling, friendly and courteous. The beauty shop and the store are convenient and have many needed items. It is a relief to know there are always staff available to help those in need. All in all, this is a wonderful place for seniors to live!

    Washington Oaks is a very friendly facility with a delightful staff. All of the staff know every name of each resident as well as their extended families. It is comforting to know there are always people around to help our loved ones 24/7. The nurses and caregivers always give prompt, caring attention to the resident in need. The buildings are kept updated, furnished beautifully, well maintained and always clean and fresh. The meals are healthy and flavorful with different choices each meal. Great and courteous wait staff! It is always a pleasure to go visit family at WA OAKS, and often I talk with other residents who I may or may not know.

    Love living here. Manager and staff are great. There is never a time when you need them, via bell or ask. The people that live here and your neighbors are just as good, if not the problems are resolved in a very courteous manner.My husband has the same feeling. My daughter who handles all our financial affairs wants to move in but she is not old enough. The food is great and if there is a complaint from yourself or others the food committee and chefs try to take care of the problem as soon as they can. A new idea is considered, but not always able to be expedited. Thanks for our opportunity to give our chance to let you know our feelings

    Our Mom, who is 95, has lived in Washington Oakes for over two years. She has received the most kind, loving and attentive care that we could ever hope for. The staff is cheerful and reliable. The food in the recently remodeled dining room is excellent. In fact, we often join her for meals. As Mom gradually needs additional help, Washington Oakes has been able to provide more assistance. The people living at WO are friendly and supportive of each other.

    This is the best assisted living facility I have ever reviewed! My mom has been living their for over 2 months and loves it. I had researched many assisted living facilities in the area and the quality, security, management, and all the staff as well as the residents are remarkably professional, courteous, and friendly! It is truly a beautiful facility with all the amenities, totally first class all the way. I would strongly recommend Washington Oakes to anyone who needs to have an assisted living facility for a family member. Candie Parsons, daughter of resident Eileen

    Washington Oakes is great retirement community. There are great amenities and wonderful staff members that cater to residents. It is wonderful to see them go out and be busy with the activities that are available. I have gone to a hockey game, picnics, and other activities with these residents and they are very happy. The location is close to other important facilities for seniors as well;number of churches, the YMCA, Grocery and Pharmaceutical stores, and Providence Medical Center. Definitely 5 star!

    Part of my hearing practice takes me to several area retirement communities and I look at them as if my own parents would live there. Washington Oaks is an exemplary community. Being corporate owned and all the expectations that come with that can make it a challenge to create a comfortable and home-like feel. The staff at Washington Oaks has done that at a surprisingly high level. I see a lot of residents who are very happy with the place they call home and absolutely thrive. I am happy and proud to be a small part of what Washington Oaks has to offer.

Food service for the residents is second to none. Of special note is the true caring nature of the general manager who works tirelessly to insure each resident is special. A wonderful place to have family members call their home.

    The quality of care my parents receive gives me great comfort as I live 1200 miles away and can only come to visit a couple of times a year. My parent's health has improved tremendously since they moved into Washington Oakes. They have made new friends and keep very busy. When I call they are often in the middle of a pinnacle game with other residents. I just got off the phone with my mom who said she was excited about their monthly excursion to a local casino. My parents have the services they need while maintaining an independent life. The staff are responsive to questions and do not hesitate to call to talk with me about care options for my parents. They are my eyes and ears. What I like best about the staff is they take the time to listen to my parents and to understand what services and support they need. They also work with me to make sure I am aware of any changes in their health so that together with my parents we can plan the best support options. My parents have struggled with health issues for years and I have worried about their well being. They are now in a safe, caring environment. They and I could not be more pleased with the services and support. I sleep better at night knowing that others have joined my efforts to ensure that my parents can live their lives in the comfort of their own home while getting the help they need for those parts of their lives they can no longer manage. I highly recommend Washington Oakes, the staff are my extended family and together we ensure the quality of life my parents deserve.

    I have been a resident of Washington-Oakes for 8 years. I am quite comfortable and would recommend it to all. WashOaks is fortunate to be located in a working class community where both residents and staff are at home." The management and Staff are excellent. The food service is exemplary. The facility is just fine. We are located at a juncture convenient for walking to the waters' edge and to both grocery and pharmacy. The neighborhood enjoys our presence, even the City employees are helpful and friend to all of us. I think Washington Oakes deserves special recognition by SeniorHomes.com

    I have had parents of many friends go through the emotional trauma of finding a new home for their loved ones. I have universally heard nothing but positive glowing reviews about Washington Oakes staff - their welcoming attitudes, the caring service provision, the food service and amenities offered, and most importantly the high recommendations from family and residents whenever I have visited the facility. I think the fact that the residents seem so happy and enthused about their homes speaks volumes for the staff and service. If I need or if my parents need to move in the future, this is the location I hope to be able to choose.

    my uncle moved to Washington Oakes from Los Angeles about 3 years ago. He has been so happy there, enjoying the food, activities, staff and other residents. He has made many friends. The family is very relieved that we know he is eating properly and there are people close by at all times if anything should happen.

    The care my father has been receiving has been extraordinary. the friendliness of all staff members creates a real family atmosphere. And the abundant amount of activities keeps him entertained. Best of all is the restaurant style dining with high quality food.

    I've been knowing about W.O. since about 8 yrs ago I came with other Deacons from church (1st Pres) to serve communion. When I was 80, I put money down to reserve option to live here, & through the years, was invited to many affairs, some of which I attended. Everyone I met was happy to be here. I arrived Mar. 23 and am very comfortable.

    The food was very good when I came here over 2 years ago. For the past year it hasn't been very good. If this was was a restaurant they would have been out of business a long time ago.

    I am most pleased with Washington Oakes. They have a 16 passenger bus with seat belts. On Sundays the bus takes us to 5 different church locations. W.O. has a van that can take 3 passengers most anywhere in North Everett

    We have an excellent Mgr. He is hands-on - his door is always open and if he can't help you with a problem he will find someone who can. The entire staff are genial, helpful & compassionate & can multi-task. They offer activities to help keep our minds & bodies active & well & offer a bus and in house means to fulfill one's religious practices. I feel safe & secure here. It's a wonderful place to call "home."

    I haven't had health care, but I'm sure it is 5 too. Our manager makes sure we are happy. Our housekeepers are good. The food is good. The dining room manager is always interested in making sure our meals are satisfactory.

    When my son Paul who is retired from Boeing Aircraft decided to move my husband and me from NY to Everett we were very nervous about leaving. However, we cannot tell you how happy we are to have made the move. Washington Oakes is a wonderful retirement home and we are thrilled with everything they offer. We recommend it highly.

    Living here is like having an extended family. Everyone here is so warm & friendly, including the residents. The only 4 above is because of several activities scheduled at the same time or of scheduled events that don't happen.

    Cannot praise the manager, Ted Kasuga, and his staff enough. As a chaplain in a few organizations thru the years I've seen the worst and good ones. Wa Oakes is outstanding for being friendly and helpful. My brother, Melvin Thomas was a resident years ago, so I know. I am grateful to be here surrounded by caring and helpful staff.

    I don't use health services as an independent resident, so won't grade them. We've been here 7+ yrs. & love living here. Staff is our extended family & all the residents are warm & friendly. this is a very close knit community.

    Washington Oakes has an amazing staff! They are the reason that the community is so successful. It's attraction is the lively hood in their four walls. Being greeted at the front desk with a welcoming smile a sincere inquiry with why I was there. A very thorough tour of the community and meeting staff. Each staff member took the time to ask me how I was doing, and listening, not listening past me. I never felt like anyone had the "car salesman" on being pushy. What I was most impressed with was their ability to keep the residents active and interested in so many ways. There is music, game time, lectures, exercise etc., how do they do it? I felt great going to visit this location and have them in the runnings for making the move for my parents.

    I have visited this property several times over the years, as well as numerous other senior living properties. This is the only choice I would make to move into full time. The amenities are first class, the finishes throughout are well above average, but above all is the staff... not enough stars to rate all of the wonderful people I make contact with at this beautiful property.

    I have lunch with my father almost every day at Washington Oakes. It is simply the best place for him to be. Almost all the residents I have had the pleasure to lunch with while visiting my father, have come from other retirement homes; they all stop searching, without acception, when they find the Washington Oakes. Thank you Tad, Al and especially the cooks" your meals and daily home made soups and COOKIES!!" and staff for making Washington Oakes the great place it is. The entire staffs genuine, kind, loving, care is what reinforces my conviction that my father is living at the very best place he can call home. Thank you, you guys are the best!

    The people here make you feel like family. They get to know what you like and guess what, they make sure you have it. My father-in-law lived here until recently. I can't think of a place better than this one. From the management to the person who serves the food. They are the BEST!!
