More Senior Housing Options Coming To The Vancouver, WA Area

We are fortunate to have a variety of senior housing options available in the Vancouver and Clark County Washington area.  Those options include adult family homes, assisted living, independent living, retirement communities, memory care and Parkinson’s units, among others. Amenities and services at each differ.  And many of these options have been combined for easy transitioning to a higher level of care if needed.  But, currently these resources have a 90 percent occupancy rate. And, with Vancouver being a popular spot to retire and the population aging, it means we will soon need more senior housing which is just what is in the plans.

There are over 187 units of assisted living, memory care and independent living apartments underway. Some will have pet-friendly parks and, just to name a few of the various amenities and services, others will have exercise rooms, gardening programs, and nursing services.

There is recent news that on October 4, one of the senior living complex owners will be breaking ground on a new development. Groundbreaking will occur at 11:00 a.m. for The Hamptons at Salmon Creek, a development with 43 rooms (25 semi-private and 18 private) for seniors with memory issues related to dementias including Alzheimer’s disease. The opening is planned for June 2013.  You can attend the 11:00 a.m. groundbreaking at the project site (2305 NE 129th Street in Vancouver or join the 2:30 p.m. celebration at their senior living complex in east Vancouver on 1617 SE Talton Avenue where you can enjoy their newly remodeled courtyard.

We, here at A Caring Heart, keep a pulse on all of the senior housing options in the Vancouver and Clark County area for you. And with more choices coming, this will become even more important for those of you who are considering some level of assisted living now or in the future.
