Stanwood offers residents apartment-style independent living with the convenience of assisted living services – all the amenities of a home without the work. There are studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes. Residents can enjoy socializing in the library, comfortable lounge areas and activity rooms. There is a private dining room for special events, a hair salon and barbershop, plentiful resident and guest parking, weekly housekeeping, and a resident call system in every apartment. Small pets are welcome.
Our staff is dedicated to making each day special. The 24-hour staff is available and ready to respond to resident needs. We also have a licensed nurse on-site. Our staff is caring and professionally trained. The community offers on-site maintenance and concierge services.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We strive to create symbiotic relationships with our local healthcare providers by educating them on and offering access to our community wellness programs. These programs benefit their clientele as well as our residents. We also provide weekly transportation to physicians and local hospitals in the area.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful, Active Lifestyle
Stanwood residents enjoy outings and trips, bridge clubs, gathering around the fireplace with our book club, taking walks to a nearby park, and choosing from many other scheduled activities. We have happy hours several times per week and live music at least once a week. Regular exercise classes allow residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle by encouraging movement and socialization. Non-denominational church services are available on-site. Transportation to other local churches is provided.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
We are active in the community. We partner with Camano Island Senior Center and Stanwood Senior Center. Some of the community events that our residents enjoy are Relay for Life, Stanwood Community Parade, and Alzheimer’s Walk for Life.
Restaurant-style “anytime” dining is offered from 7:30am to 7:00pm. There are no assigned seats or meal times. We host a special fine dining event once a quarter. Additionally, residents enjoy a theme dinner with live music in the main dining room once a month. There is a wide variety of dining choices, including fresh fruits and vegetables, salad bar, and homemade soup every day. Our Dining Service Director previously owned her own local restaurant and is well-known for providing delicious meals.
