There are 2 nursing homes in Shoreline, WA and 3 nursing homes nearby.
The city of Shoreline is a convenient 15 miles north of downtown Seattle and one of Washington’s newest cities, incorporated in 1995. Shoreline is primarily a residential community comprised of 14 neighborhoods, and is an easy commute from Seattle and the surrounding cities of Edmonds and Lake Forest Park. With a population of over 53,000, Shoreline was Washington’s fifteenth largest city in 2007 and the sixth largest city in King County.
A resident of a Shoreline nursing home enjoys a quiet suburban life in the area’s abundant natural beauty with easy access to nearby metropolitan activities and medical care.
In selecting the right type of facility, it is important to understand the differences in the terms used in senior housing. A “nursing home” has professional staff that provides intensive medical care to residents with serious, chronic conditions. An “assisted living” facility is typically designed for seniors who may need support in daily activities such as meals, personal hygiene, or may have some physical limitations or frailty. Here is information about Shoreline assisted living residences.
Shoreline nursing home residents benefit from quick access to Stevens Hospital in Edmonds, Northwest Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, and a number of other hospitals and medical centers in the surrounding area.
The Emergency Department at Stevens Hospital pledges to provide its patients with excellent care and its waiting times are the shortest of any hospital in Western Washington.
Understanding how stressful an emergency medical situation may be, patient care liaisons circulate throughout the waiting room to keep patients and their families continually informed of their status.
Northwest Hospital and Medical Center is home to the most ultra-modern emergency department in the Seattle area. The Emergency Department provides a triage room that is staffed 24 hours a day, quick access to other key treatment areas in the hospital, mobile admitting stations to allow beside patient admissions, and 24 private treatment rooms.
With over 25 parks in Shoreline city’s park system, nursing home residents may spend a pleasant day outdoors, experiencing the natural beauty that surrounds Shoreline. Situated between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, Shoreline nursing home residents may also enjoy saltwater and freshwater beaches.
Docent led tours of the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, a plant collection rich in Pacific Northwest native plants and unusual species from other lands set in a four-acre, wooded, park-like atmosphere, are wheelchair accessible and free. The Shoreline Historical Museum offers free exhibits and programs focusing on the history of the Shoreline area and its relationship to the Northwest.
Throughout the year, the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council offers such community cultural activities and events such as Concerts in the Parks, Arts in Culture Series and the Shoreline Arts Festival, and manages a gallery featuring local and regional visual artists.
