Áegis Living Opens Innovative Mediterranean Inspired Senior Living Community
SEATTLE–Áegis Living, a nationally recognized leader in senior assisted living and memory care known for redefining the aging experience, announces its newest community—Áegis of West Seattle—with the ambience of a Mediterranean resort offering standout amenities and programs.
Áegis Living is a neighborhood-oriented company that combines inspired design with relevant regional character to its locations. Reminiscent of a hotel in sundrenched Capri, Italy, Áegis of West Seattle offers a visual feast for the senses with bright colors, imaginative touches and nautical design features characteristic of the restorative serenity that comes from living near the sea.
Original ocean themed art, vibrant blue accents, and outdoor terraces and decks for alfresco dining and events give the upbeat new senior living community a waterside resort vibe with the relaxed flair of a vacation villa.
The dramatic two-story open entry hall includes spectacular Viz blown glass chandeliers and a contemporary gas fireplace. Whimsical elements throughout include a submarine-sized and themed aquarium, an authentic tugboat, and local memorabilia creating a connection to the water-oriented lifestyle area residents know and love.
“Mediterranean Europe is influenced by a variety of cultures known for living life to the fullest,” said Dwayne J. Clark, CEO Áegis Living. “Knowing today’s seniors have lived full lives—from enjoying great food, 5-star hospitality, and active experiences—at Áegis of West Seattle we go above and beyond to exceed those continuing expectations of a life well lived. We embrace the Mediterranean zest for life with a fresh, vibrant setting for celebrating the magic of each day and provide a sense of family and community through the authentic, passionate care of our loving and highly trained staff.”
Áegis of West Seattle–located at 4700 S.W. Admiral Way, Seattle– houses 83 apartment-style units with 24-hour medical care and support service options to meet residents’ transitional needs: Assisted Living, for those who can no longer live independently; and Memory Care, for people with advanced memory loss. The innovative Life Enrichment program provides purposeful, engaging activities that elevate mind, body and spirit.
Nearly 700 people attended Áegis of West Seattle public Grand Opening festivities on August, 25, 2018.
In its continuing goal to be the most innovative senior assisted living company, Áegis Living currently has six assisted living and memory care communities in development. A lodge-themed community will open on Mercer Island, Wash. in 2019. Other communities are slated for Bellevue and Kirkland, WA; and South Lake Union in Seattle—the first targeted environmental Living Building in the senior living industry—in 2020, and beyond.
Áegis Living is a national leader in assisted living and memory care. The privately-held company founded in 1997 is headquartered in Bellevue, Wash., and operates 31 communities in Washington, California and Nevada.
