I am a friend or relative of a resident

My grandmother lives at Faerland Terrace and it's a beautiful place! It's located right in downtown Seattle and is accessible to everything. It does not feel like a home for elderly people. In fact, it's bright, cheerful, and the staff is so welcoming. It just feels like a fancy apartment building with staff. My grandmother needs some help caring for herself and the staff there are always willing to lend a hand but also encourage my grandmother to do things for herself when she can. I am able to visit her there about once a week and look forward to my visits there. They have guest meals available so I'm able to eat dinner with my grandmother when I'm there. The food is great and tastes just like a regular restaurant - not at all institutional feeling. They also have activities for the residents to participate in and plan lots of fun things for them to do, if they choose. I'm really happy we found this place for my grandmother and definitely would recommend it to other people looking for a vibrant place for their elderly relative to live.

I am a friend or relative of resident

My cousin lives at the facility. The facility has a reputation for great customer care. After a while of searching for a assisted living facility that would accept him we stumble upon this one. Every time i visit my cousin he always has something nice to say about the staff and other residents. While visiting i met some of his friends and they all said the staff makes multiple checks on them daily. The feeling of knowing that he is not being mistreated releases a burden off of my shoulders. Whenever I visit the staff treats me with respect as if i was a resident. One of the qualities that this facility offers that i highly appreciate is the communications they provide.

Visited this facility

This facility is located in downtown Seattle in a very well kept building with free visitor parking. I have visited several residents of Faerland Terrace over the past year and have been consistently impressed with the facility and general staff. The dining room is lovely and residents report enjoying their meals. Resident activities (both inside and outside the building) are available throughout the day everyday. The nursing staff is competent but does not always follow through with detailed recommendations for individual residents.
