Set to open its doors in March 2024 on Ballard’s Market Street, Aegis Living Ballard is a culmination of over 25 years of senior living expertise. The brand-new assisted living and memory care community redefines senior care in the neighborhood, combining a wealth of experience with personalized programming. From enriching activities to delightful dining experiences, the community promises a fulfilling senior lifestyle while seamlessly integrating into the neighborhood.
Guided by the Seven Dimensions of Health and Wellness, Aegis Living Ballard ensures that physical activity, social interactions, and cognitive stimulation are at the forefront of daily life. The result is a thoughtfully crafted Life Enrichment schedule that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit.
Aegis Living Ballard is dedicated to fostering close-knit relationships among residents while ensuring each day is filled with new opportunities. With an impressive 200 events per month, the dedicated Life Enrichment team brings residents together so they immediately feel part of the community and can make new friends easily.
One of the hallmarks of Aegis Living is its personalized approach to each resident. Drawing from the latest technology and bringing in strategic partnerships, the Life Enrichment team designs activities that resonate with residents’ individual interests and unique stories. Whether residents wish to continue their yoga practice, satisfy their wanderlust in a foreign language class, or take part in a music history lecture, each day presents fresh opportunities to explore new passions and engage with their neighbors, friends, and team members.
In honor of Ballard’s deep Scandinavian roots, Aegis Living Ballard has partnered with the National Nordic Museum, adding an extra layer of connection to the greater community. Through this collaboration, residents can delve into the neighborhood’s heritage, engaging in learning experiences and exploring exhibits.
“Friends and family can also stay closely connected to their loved ones with our proprietary Family Link app,” said Chris Corrigall, Vice President of Life Enrichment. “Family members can access the daily activities, shared photo galleries, and messages from our team members to gain a window into their loved one’s day and understand how they are settling into their new home.”
For individuals in Aegis Living’s Memory Care program, the Life’s Neighborhood wing provides a caring and purpose-driven environment. Understanding that every resident and the progression of their memory loss is unique, the Life Enrichment team adapts quickly and sensitively to evolving needs. The thoughtful programming, based on scientific research and drawing from years of experience in dementia care, focuses on sensory engagement and connecting with nostalgic memories to create daily joyful moments. From morning gratitude programs to aromatherapy and pet therapy, each activity is carefully curated to stimulate the senses and cognitive function.
Art and music therapy, including the Masterpiece Art program and certified music therapists, offers profound benefits to all residents, particularly for those navigating dementia. Aegis Living Ballard uses these therapeutic interventions to alleviate anxiety, combat depression, and offer gentle redirection. Participating in group music or art activities encourages residents to socialize, promoting a sense of community and creative expression.
As residents gather around the table, communal dining is another opportunity to share quality time together and deepen their connections by getting to know each other better. Culinary excellence is a cornerstone of the Aegis Living brand. Aegis Living Ballard’s chefs and a registered dietitian collaborate to craft delectable and health-conscious meals. The main dining room, with its captivating two-story ceiling adorned with a sail-like lighting installation, sets the stage for elegant shared culinary experiences. For casual dining, residents can enjoy a daily special from the pizza oven in the bistro or visit the pub, Skål, which pays homage to Ballard’s famous beer hall.
Reminiscent of a favorite restaurant, daily dining options include seasonal delights and timeless classics tailored to the resident’s preferences. Whether residents gather for a hearty breakfast or gourmet dinner, dining together allows for shared moments and lively conversations. Aegis Living is more than a community—it’s home to purposeful living, unforgettable memories, and genuine connections.
