So Happy I found Avamere Port Townsend!
I lived in NM n my home for 50+ years with no family around for the past 14 years. Although I loved my home and neighbors, it's not the same with out family. I realized how much I needed them and although the downsizing and move was difficult, I am so happy to be here now! I made the right decision! The staff at Avamere Port Townsend are so kind and helpful and made the transition as easy as possible by also sharing great resources and plan. My advice, don't wait too long to make this change - there is a life after your move!!

Meets the needs with positive aspects
The Avamere at Port Townsend appears to be very clean when w come to visit. Our loved one enjoys eating the meals there - now they are institutional meals but so far no real complaints. They do have plenty of activities to offer and we would recommend the community to other families. No complaints with the overall value either.

Great Experience - they are having a hard time hiring staff
I have lived at Avamere for around 2 years. I really am impressed by the new director, [name removed]. They have had a hard time hiring staff, but are in the process of getting more staff on-board. I find the caregiver and wait staff in the dining area work very hard and are very responsive.

It is a really nice place there is no question about it, and the price is very comprable. The only small complaint is that there are a lot of people in assisted living and they seem to just roam around the community and even fall asleep out in the open. I love my apartment, it is a one bedroom but it is very spacious. It has a full kitchen a nice patio, and im right across from a forest and i can see the beautiful grounds. On the independent living side everyone has a patio but on the assisted living side they do not, and there is no kitchen but they do have a microwave. All of the apartment seem comprable and the food here is very good.

Highly recommend it to anyone that has that need
The staff members at the community are very good, and when it comes to the care services they provide everything our loved ones needs help with. Under the current circumstances they are still doing activities, and they are coming up with new ways to keep the residents active and engaged.

Horrible, dangerous place
This is a horrible place for any family member, the meals are precooked frozen and reheated, the activity's are a joke, mostly feeding wine and booze to the fokes and the staff is non existent so short staffed it should be illegal sometimes only one person to take care of over 60 people. Run don't walk from this place if you truly love your family member.

Smells like a Nursing Home
So disappointed in the care and administration. My mom lived here for 6 months last year. Her needs were never adequately met. Care staff were rude. The entire place smelled of urine. Terrible experience.

Could use more staff!!
My mother is currently a resident at this community and things have not been the best for her so far. I have seen that they have a lack of staff available throughout the day and need to have more on the schedule in my opinion. There is not enough team members to take care of the all of the residents in a timely manor. There was also a short period of time where they did not have an activity directer so there was nothing going on for them throughout the day. One of my mothers biggest complaints is the meal times. She has waited over an hour to receive her food at times. I am hoping they can make some improvement in the near future.

The Other Possible Choice
The Seaport Landing our went great. Between another community, we were expecting my mother-in-law to pick this one. It is a much larger community and the people were great. We got to see everything for my mother-in-law to see.

I've only been here one week. So far I've found friendly people, both staff and residents. Food is good, plenty of choices and variety. Very clean and odorless hallways and public rooms. Activities are somewhat spotty as schedules are made up well in advance and when the time comes may need adjustment.

beware
Extreme staff turnover- important positions (nurse, care coordinator, activity director, cook) often vacant. Understaffed. Food fair to poor. Elevator often out of service, stranding non-ambulatory residents. Dishwasher in kitchen non-functional for weeks. Activities may be listed daily, but most do not happen.

It's going pretty good so far.
It's going pretty good so far. It's very clean. Everyone is pretty friendly. They do bingo and cards, and trips. They have been pretty responsive if anything has come up. They seem to be a little less than the national average in price. There haven't been any complaints about the food, it seems to be pretty good. Other than lowering the price, there really isn't anything I would like to see improved or done better.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Avamere at Port Townsend

Avamere at Port Townsend offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Avamere at Port Townsend 9 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
