Where the Heart Is Assisted Living and Memory Care
What we like best about this facility is the overall pleasant, upbeat atmosphere provided by the friendly staff and brightly decorated common spaces with plenty of natural light. Residents can choose from pet-friendly, spacious studio and one-bedroom apartments. The on-site executive chef prepares three restaurant-style meals per day, and snacks and beverages are available at any time. There is scheduled transportation for off-site social events, and residents also have access to a full calendar of exciting on-site activities.
With a resident capacity of just 40, this facility is ideal for those who don't feel comfortable being part of a large crowd. We also like the homey atmosphere of the dining room here and the covered porch with comfortable seating overlooking the attractively landscaped gardens. On-site amenities include a beauty salon/barbershop, a fitness center with programs and classes designed for a variety of personal preferences and ability levels, a computer room and several libraries. This facility does not allow pets, so it's a good choice for those who are allergic to animals.

On-site activities include yoga, gardening, arts and crafts, movies, music and religious services. There is a game room where residents can play cribbage or other card games, do puzzles and watch television programs and movies and an on-site salon/barbershop.
The Bridge at Mt. Vernon
We are impressed with this facility's attractively landscaped courtyard with a gazebo and picnic areas and the bright, welcoming atmosphere of the interior common spaces. Residents enjoy regularly scheduled outings to community events and places of interest, on-site restaurant-style dining using fresh, local ingredients whenever possible and a hair salon/barbershop. There is also a crafts room where residents can explore their creative side and several cozy fireplaces throughout the building where they can sit and read a book or visit with others.
Creekside Continuing Care Community
We love the variety of floor plans this pet-friendly facility has to offer. Residents have the option of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units as well as companion suites. All apartments are equipped with in-room kitchenettes or kitchens and 24-hour emergency alert systems. Outdoor amenities include hiking trails and garden areas and patios with plenty of comfortable seating.

Chandler's Square Senior Living Community
This pet-friendly, faith-based community offers morning and afternoon on-site religious services each Sunday as well as regular weekday meditation sessions, Bible study and spiritual support group meetings. The activities calendar really got our attention — coloring clubs, lunch outings, Wii Sports, Pinochle tournaments, resident walks, movies and live music are just a few of the many available options. Floor plans include studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with washers and dryers and cable. Scheduled transportation is available within Anacortes on a daily basis. We particularly like how resident committees provide residents with a voice in how the facility is operated.
Mountain Glen Retirement Community
We particularly like that Mountain Glen Retirement Community uses the EverFit Fitness Program, which is designed to provide seniors with a balanced range of low-impact exercise possibilities. Options include tai chi, low-impact aerobics, strength and balance classes, aquatic exercise and walking programs. Residents also have the opportunity to enjoy live musical performances by talented local musicians on a weekly basis, and there are weekly ice cream socials to satisfy the sweet tooth. The fountain courtyard provides a peaceful outdoor environment for relaxing with a book, puzzle or conversing with friends, and the indoor fireplace sitting area is ideal for rainy days.
Spring Creek By Bonaventure
This facility offers everything from an indoor hospitality suite with a bar and poker tables to outdoor walking paths where residents and their small pets can enjoy fresh air and exercise. We also like that residents have plenty of access to personal growth activities such as classes in painting and music and participating in special interest clubs. This facility also has a fitness center, computer workstations with complimentary Wi-Fi, a full-service salon and barbershop.
One of the reasons we included this pet-friendly facility on our top 10 list is because of its Personal Solutions Program, which provides residents with the opportunity to have a wide range of personal care products delivered directly to their apartments. Items include personal hygiene products such as soap, body wash, shaving products, incontinence products, tissue and paper towels and hearing aid batteries. We are also impressed with this facility's common areas, which include an on-site pub, a pleasant sunroom, a fireside living room, a piano and well-kept outdoor areas with walking trails and seating areas.
