Services & Lifestyle
Our residents are very much engaged in life. They want to go, do, laugh and learn, and they accomplish this through exercise programs, guest speakers, game nights, live entertainment and parties. But that is only the beginning. We also offer day and overnight trips for our residents. For example, getting out to a Mariners’ Game, visiting a museum, attending a play, trying a new restaurant, taking a ride over the mountains for the Autumn Show or whale watching, all of this can be had at Garden Court. Although there are lots of things to do, you don’t have to do anything at all of you don’t want to! We simply want you to be happy in your environment.
Our dining program is built on flavor, freshness, health and options. We provide the most elegant of cuisine prepared with quality ingredients such as choice prime rib, wild caught salmon and other seafoods. In addition, home cooked favorites, the occasional ethnic dish and even vegetarian options keep it interesting. We present a fresh menu every morning outlining the featured entrees, homemade soups and special salads made available throughout the day. And there are always standing menu options so you can find something you will enjoy over and over. Most importantly, we know independent seniors want to come and go as they please, so Dining On Demand allows residents to eat when it’s convenient for them. Dining on Demand is available from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm daily.
Housekeeping and linen service are included in your base rent. Weekly, we come to your apartment and handle the heavy cleaning tasks like scrubbing your floors and bathrooms, as well as vacuuming your carpets. We wash your sheets and towels and make the bed when finished. Having your life in order gives you peace of mind and it frees you to enjoy your spouse, family and friends.
Scheduled transportation is laid out monthly so you can plan your doctor visits, grocery store runs and church transports far in advance. Plus, Garden Court is the only community in this area that has a Free Open Transportation Program*, which means if you need to make a quick trip to Macy’s for a birthday gift, go to a quilting class at the fabric store or meet a friend for lunch in Mill Creek, our cars are running and waiting for you to jump in and get on your way! However, if you still enjoy driving, we offer free valet service to bring your car or park your car, so you stay safe and dry when needed.
*Some restrictions apply.

Independent living services are designed for those who need minor assistance with activities and daily living. These residents want a place to live that requires very little maintenance, they want to socialize with your peers and broaden your social network, as well as enjoy activities and meals in the company of others.
Garden Court Retirement was built from the ground up to provide all the comforts for active retired seniors. We offer a great Independent Living experience with the ability to entertain your friends and family, enjoy exercise activities such as walking the gardens, or just relax with a great book in front of the fire. Services are included with rent so that our residents can focus on enjoying the best parts of life. Many find they enjoy a higher quality of life here than they could by staying in their former home. You’re moving into a community that doesn’t rely on dependency but instead focuses on independence.
Assisted living services are designed to provide a bit more hands on assistance for residents who can’t independently do everything life requires. Trained caregivers provide attention and assistance with medication management, bathing, dressing and cooking 24-hours a day. In addition, staff will coordinate services with outside healthcare providers and monitor residents to ensure they are healthy.
At Garden Court Retirement, we believe assistance with your personal care should be used as a tool to keep you independent. Therefore, if you have surgery and need a little or a lot of care for a short period of time, you should have it. However, once you are back to your “baseline”, you can go off assisted living services and get back to normal. Our goal is to keep you as independent as possible while keeping you safe. Many residents live in our community for years, and as their care needs evolve, we adapt our services to address their change in condition (including Hospice).
We also have a licensed RN and LPN 6 days a week with 24/7 care staff. Our licensed staff work closely with your doctor to create a personalized care plan for you. Safety is a primary concern at Garden Court. Our entire staff is trained in first-aid and emergency procedures. And each apartment is equipped with check-in, emergency and fire safety systems.
