My family members toilet had overflowed all over the bathroom floor and out into the room. We told various staff members at least 3 times about it. They relayed the message to housekeeping. During the 1.5 hours we were there, housekeeping NEVER came :\

Overall friendly but expensive... Staff is helpful at the adminlevelbut the place is dated. The fees are never ending and they are not as affordable as an adult family home.

My mother and father lived in one of the six plexes until my father died. During this time they had live in care givers and enjoyed their lives in the company of neighbors and gardening in the community garden while they were able.
The problem we experienced was when my mother had to be in the nursing home section for awhile. There were several things that should have been seen to or prevented. My mother fell out of bed and lay there for perhaps an hour. Her bed linens were left wet for sometimes as long as one complete shift. Her medications were not noticed when they fell onto the bed. Very spotty skilled care.

Description of Tacoma Lutheran Home in TACOMA, WA

Number of Beds : 187

Assisted living is a good solution for seniors who require a little help but desire to preserve their self-reliance. Assisted living is advantageous for seniors. Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to a happier life. Assisted living offers senior-friendly residences and a warm staff. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Laundry, housekeeping, social programs, and local transportation are typically provided as well. Senator John Glenn once said, “Too many people, when they get old, think they have to live by the calendar.” A rejection of ‘calendar living’ perfectly describes the kind of world the senior living industry creates for millions of Americans over 55. Senior living is a lifestyle of personal choice. Those in senior living communities are never beholden to the calendar. They are free to be as active or inactive as they wish. If they want to relax and watch TV, they are free to do that, too. If they are healthy and independent and wish only to take advantage of fine housing, home-cooked meals, and cleaning services, they are free to do so. If they need assistance with some aspects of daily living, that type of community is available, too. Senior living also includes housing for those who require daily medical care as well as care for seniors who want to stay in their own homes. A well-organized system of care, senior living welcomes you for what YOU want to do.
