Recent reviews of Senior Apartments in Bellingham, WA
The Vintage at Mount Vernon

I've had a great experience here so far, I'd recommend this place highly! You get quite a lot for what you pay here, they are "apartment homes" so each unit has a small fully equipped kitchen, and a washer and dryer. The complex also has a gym, billiard room, and a great room for socializing. The front office people are very friendly, cordial, and personable, and they made the transition as easy as could be!

Brookdale Fairhaven in Bellingham, WA

So far our family has had a good experience with Brookdale Fairhaven, and we would definitely recommend families to come and check them out for their loved ones since everyone is different. Our loved one has really enjoyed the meals, he thinks they are really good. We have really appreciated the staffs friendliness and approachability.

Avista Ferndale

The caregivers have made all efforts to make sure my father is taken care of. They genuinely care! I love the smaller atmosphere, it feels very homey. The facility is clean, and I appreciate everything is all on one level. The garden area is beautiful, and my father loves hearing and seeing all of the birds. There are always activities going on, and residents seem happy. I would highly recommend!
