I visited this facility

Bellingham was very nice. They had a nice, clean and pleasant location. The staff was good. They had private rooms. They had some activities. However, it was more expensive than what we could afford.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I went with my partner at Bellingham to see the place and he was able to get a two-bedroom apartment. The rooms are spacious. If you didn't know that the apartment is in a facility, you wouldn't know because of the looks of it. It was updated, they put new carpeting in, they painted the whole place so it was nice and fresh for him. They also have an assisted living section and then they also have a dementia unit. They also have nursing unit available there. They have a local office that provides personal care and that was something attractive because we were using personal care services. You can just hire somebody for as little as half an hour. They also have a room there wherein you can reserve so that if you have a family that is coming in from out of town they can stay there like a hotel. We like that idea because his children are in California and it not really that expensive. They also have cleaning service. It's almost likely they have everything right there.

My parents are doing fine at Bellingham. They can get where they have to go and they do what they want to do. I like that the facility is very clean and they are constantly updating the facility.
