I loved Solstice Senior Living at Renton. I had a room that I had chosen to move into. It was a beautiful 1-bedroom with a slider door out to a patio and a green grassy area. I have a dog so that was going to be wonderful. I had lunch there and everything was very good. The people were very inviting and introduced themselves. The staff was wonderful. I have nothing bad to say about it. The staff member who interviewed me and showed me around were both very upfront with everything they had to offer. They were amazing.
I really loved Solstice Senior Living at Renton. It was very nice and the food was delicious. The facilities was clean as a whistle. Everything was lovely. I highly recommend it. The staff was very kind and they have things going on every day. I almost got tired trying to think of all the things I could participate in. It was very nice. They have a beauty shop, an activity, an exercise room, game room, and a TV room.
We had lunch with the residents of Evergreen Place. They had shared rooms, studio rooms, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. They had laundry services, helpers who we can pay by the hour and someone who can give the medicines to my parents. They had a doctor who visits the residents for general care, and transportation to take them to their appointments.
The management and staff were friendly. Salesperson was not so much talked poorly about other staff, management, and residents and had no respect for people. This left a bad taste in your mouth and was very pushy! The facility itself was run down looking ie bathrooms (cut out tubs), kitch ((tiny fridge on the floor which is difficult for older people to bend down to) Not much counter space for Microwave ect...) for library mismatched furniture and "gym"(Too small of a space crammed into the same area as the "Games" . The food was excellent and Chef and the staff serving the food seemed that they loved their jobs.
The community is rated as independent living however, the residents that I met were very sedate. I would say that the average age is 75 although the minimum age to move in is 55. The community dining area is themed after a cruise ship and has a very tall ceiling that reaches up 3 stories. I was invited by staff to have lunch and it smelled delicious but I did not have the time. The community is private pay only. They do work with the VA benefit aid and attendance for assistance with ADL's. They don't take medicaid. On site there are a few "cottages" that there is a waitlist for. The beautiful walking "trail" is completely paved and is gated to keep out critters. The community has laundry rooms on every floor so no trips to the basement to do laundry. The units them selves come with balcony's or patios. Cable TV is included in the rent along with utilities and transportation. I drove past the community a couple of times. The entrance is very small and not well marked and is on the side of a hill. There are small shops across the street from the community but its rather steep, so I would not recommend the neighborhood for those that like walking for exercise.
I noticed that there were people everywhere, walking, reading, visiting, waxing their car. For retired people, they were very very busy and active. The smell of the previous meal was everywhere in the entry area and it smelled wonderful. I wish I would have come to tour earlier. There was a high vaulted ceiling in the dining room area and it was a huge area. They had a real library and their own fenced outside walking path in a garden setting. The exercise room was small with only three machines but Janet the manager told me that the one piece of machinery that was perfect for seniors was their version of a sit down eliptical. I had never seen anything like it before. I would love to try it since it would take pressure off my knees. Since they don't provide assisted living I did not rate it. I did not take a meal so I really don't know how good their food is, so again I did not rate that.
