Pacifica Senior Living Lynnwood
4.5

I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The staff are wonderful and warm to the residents and the family. The communication is wonderful with the staff. The community provides three meals a day with snacks available for the residents. There are cabins for the residents to stay with similar care needed for the residents in the cabin. The food is made in one common area, and then delivered to the individual cabins. The activities director left, and they are currently don't have one. They are trying to replace this position and maintain as many activities as possible during the interim. They have music, crafting, bible study, and movies as some of the activities offered.

I would recommend this community for your loved one. There are a few things that they could improve on like the friendliness from some of the staff. You would just expect more from the staff in this type of setting when it comes to friendliness. They advertise cleaning every week and right now it is every two weeks due to a staffing shortage and we are not sure how long this will be happening. The landscaping could also be improved in certain areas of the community. Just make sure you research to make sure it is a good fit.

Cogir of Northgate Senior Living in Seattle, WA
4.2

What we really saw that was positive is the staff, from the front end staff, to the director, who is excellent to work with. They have excellent communication. We get emails all the time with any updates. They're close by to medical facilities, so that's been a Godsend. The shuttle service they have has been very accommodating, so we've been very happy with that. They take the residents to doctor appointments, and on outings. Recently they went to the Tulip Festival. My family members love the food. They were at a different place with turnover in the kitchen that negatively affected the food, and now at Cogir of Northgate they rave about the food. They have no complaints and are very happy. The only downside has been the fact that there aren't any sidewalks along 15th NE. So if they're out walking with their electric walkers, they don't feel comfortable going on an outing to the grocery store due to the lack of sidewalks. Overall we've had a good experience, and would definitely recommend it to others.
