Aegis Living Greenwood celebrates grand opening 

The highly anticipated Aegis Living Greenwood assisted living and memory care community will open its doors with a grand opening celebration on Saturday, June 18th from 1-4 pm that is open to all. Local neighbors, families, and future residents are invited to enjoy an afternoon of live music, entertainment, and great food. Come meet the team and learn about Aegis Living’s expert care, innovative Life Enrichment programming, and chef-prepared meals. Located on Holman Road, the newest Aegis Living community offers 96 senior living apartments—56 in assisted living and 40 dedicated to memory care.

Drawing from 25 years of experience, Aegis Living is a best-in-class senior housing operator known for offering personalized care to every resident—from light assistance to a high level of care. Whether you want to enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle, partake in a dynamic calendar of activities, or live somewhere with 24-hour care staff, the community will meet your needs and exceed your expectations in service and hospitality.

Moving again can be disruptive and stressful once a resident has settled in and feels that deep sense of belonging. Therefore, Aegis Living offers a full range of assisted living and memory care services to address a spectrum of concerns. As needs change, Aegis Living can increase levels of care so residents can remain in their apartments. 

Without having to leave the comfort of your home, you have access to on-site visits from a range of medical professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, geriatric psychiatrists, and a community physician. And the around-the-clock care teams and seven-day-per-week nursing staff are always available to assist with personal care and support, like daily insulin injections or two-person transfers due to mobility issues. 

“No matter your age, we all want that sense of belonging,” said Alice Bouman, Aegis Living Vice President of Operations. “By addressing a resident’s needs, whatever those needs may be, they can create meaningful connections with neighbors and make new friends. When their concerns, anxiety, or challenges are lifted, residents are free to relax, enjoy each other’s company, and revel in the amenities and activities available to them every day.” 

By offering multiple levels of care, Aegis Living is also adept at seamlessly accommodating couples to meet their individual needs. Many aging couples rely on each other for support and companionship in their golden years. But with age, a couple’s physical, mental, and social needs may differ. At Aegis Living, each person receives the customized care and support they need without having to live apart. 

Aegis Living also recognizes the vital role that a much-loved pet plays in the lives of seniors. They believe pets are family and close companions. For this reason, Aegis Living accommodates furry friends and welcomes family pets to move into the community with their owners.

In addition to superior hospitality and a keen sensitivity to the needs of seniors, Aegis Living is known for its expertise in memory care. Its Life’s Neighborhood ™ memory care concept provides a thoughtfully designed and secured community-within-the-community to nurture the needs of residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Their memory care philosophy focuses on finding joy in the present and igniting fond memories from the past. 

An example of Aegis Living’s novel approach to memory care can be found in Greenwood’s expansive Life’s Neighborhood outdoor courtyard. The largest memory care open-air courtyard in Northwest Seattle, the Neighborhood Terrace transports residents to another time and place. A detailed façade of a picturesque village immerses residents and their family members as they stroll the quaint town with interactive storefronts and grand front porches. The unique use of experiential design is a tool to encourage engagement among residents and spark the youthful memories of yesteryear. 

Aegis Living understands the progression of dementia is as unique as the individual. Behaviors and changes can ebb and flow at different times. Transitional care is a unique alternative offered by Aegis Living, enabling those with light to moderate dementia to live fully and safely in assisted living. For individuals who may be experiencing lapses in memory or mild changes, transitional care offers the extra support, understanding, and sensitivity they need to adjust. 

The new Greenwood community will employ both seasoned caregivers who have worked for Aegis Living in other communities, bringing years of experience, along with newly trained staff joining the team for a fresh perspective. The makeup of the care team is a wonderful blend of personalities and backgrounds who are dedicated to providing the best comfort and care. The team is looking forward to welcoming new residents in the days ahead.

“This new community is absolutely stunning,” said Melissa Dalton, Aegis Living Greenwood’s General Manager, “spacious and beautifully designed, with attention to every last detail. But we know that what is really going to make this a wonderful place to live is our people. We have an absolutely incredible team here, kind and dedicated people who are committed to making a difference for our residents.”
