After touring seven facilities in the Bellevue, WA area we selected Bellewood. It is family run and has been since its inception 30 years ago. The apartments are large and well appointed. The location is central to Issaquah, Sammamish and Bellevue. The facility is more a 4-star country resort. The staff is wonderful. Most senior staff have been there for years. It is a great home to age in place.

In today's world, it seems that retirement communities and assisted living facilities are always in the news for various issues. Not so at Bellewood! My grandmother has been living here for the past 10 years, and she enjoys it very much. Their services are standard; library, 24/7 wait staff, transportation and all that, but what really makes it worth it for her is the classes and seminars that the administration brings to the facility. While many facilities do this, Bellewood has a slightly higher caliber of guests; bringing in Cisco for gardening tips, for instance, was a recent seminar.That being said, the only thing that keeps this from getting a 5 star is the location. The website advertises it as being minutes away from Seattle, but this is hardly true. It's a 20 minute bus ride to the city. While there is a small shopping center close by, it's more of a suburban area. Additionally, traffic and noise can and does get bad when the adjacent middle school lets out its students. A friend of my grandmother was walking and was nearly hit by a car on their way there.All in all, it's a great place. I know that our family is very happy with it.
