I liked Ballard Landmark very much. It had very friendly people, a wonderful location, and a little therapeutic pool for exercising. There were a variety of apartments available at good prices. We liked the dining facilities. Of the places we visited, we liked this community the best because it seems more like what we’re looking for in a facility.

Not long ago I located to the Seattle and immediately fell in love with the culture and weather. Soon after my events beyond our control our father needed additional care and a new start on life. Not having any experience in finding a senior care community I was nervous and unsure where to turn.
By chance I was having coffee in Ballard and overheard two distinguished women talking at the table besides mine. One thing led to the other and I felt comfortable asking where they lived, in which one replied “Ballard Landmark”. During our conversation they spoke very highly of this place. When I called the receptionist she directed me to Mindy. She was friendly and with great patience listened to my concerns and we agreed to schedule a date and time for me and my father to visit.
On the day of the visit we entering the Ballard Community and were impressed with the decor and open layout. The reception area and the adjoining rooms were inviting and well used by the residents. Mindy greeted us and we quickly moved into a private room for us to discuss our needs. Afterwards she gave us a tour and it was at this time we met friendly staff and residents. One thing to note is that we were invited to a complimentary lunch and it was delicious. This was a pleasant surprise! Needless to say my father and I were impressed and he is now a resident. The support staff at Ballard Landmark was very helpful to me in the process and even if this home was not the right fit for my father, Mindy’s caring approach and non biased information on assisted living was very valuable.
I can now relax and enjoy my visits with my father. Thank you.

The Ballard Landmark would get a five for cleanliness, activities, and convenient location. They have a good bus service, they have activities, and the food is very good. They have arts and crafts and other activities, and they are located a block or two from the hospital, so those are all pluses in my book. It was very clean.
