Assisted Living Reviews for University House Issaquah

I am a friend or relative of a resident

the grounds a clean, safe, and easy to get around. the staff is very friendly and professional- excellent bedside mannor. and they manage multiple levels of need, from hardly any, to total dependance with care and respect. the food is often locally sourced and was better than expected, with a great deal of variety. most importantly the community is very strong. not just the staff, but he residents as well. the whole buliding is very clean, and never felt sickly.

If there's a place I would want to be, it's definitely in this facility. They seem to have everything here. The amenities include: an entry area that looks like a fancy hotel, saltwater swimming pool, a salon that opens more often, a large dining room and larger variety of rooms configuration. It also has a broader mix of people; active seniors and some using walkers or in wheel chairs. This place has a unique policy, a policy to be actively friendly. If someone is new, one resident acts as a mentor to show the new one around. They also try to match up similar interests and likes. For instance, a woman started a painting group. They meet on their own every week to do some activities.

I visited this facility

University House Issaquah was not as expensive as the other places and a high rise of at least three stories. They had a lot of activities. I only spoke with one person, and she was very helpful. If you had to go from independent living to assisted living, you didn't have to move to a different apartment. You could stay in the same apartment and just get the extra services, and I thought that was nice. Their rooms were quite nice, large, and had a newer style.

This place is nice, clean, well maintained. The apartments seem to be spacious and well planned. The facilities average age is about 84 and many have dementia. Food seems to be good though not highly creative
