Silverado Senior Living, specializing in memory care services, recently expanded its presence into Washington state to manage two new communities, Silverado Senior Living—Everett and Silverado Senior Living—Bellingham.
The company assumed the operations of two dementia-care communities located at 524 75th Street SE, in Everett, and 848 W. Orchard Drive, in Bellingham, in December, and plans to spend about a million dollars on each community to upgrade the properties’ amenities and memory care services.
The communities will undergo “complete renovation” with new carpet, paint, and furniture, and will be repositioned to reflect Silverado’s brand, according to Paul Mullin, Vice President of Development at Silverado. The Bellingham property, with 74 beds, is currently under renovation, and the 60-bed Everett community will undergo renovations starting in June.
“The expansion into Washington is an important step in our goal of bringing Silverado’s innovative care practices to more memory-impaired individuals and their families throughout America,” said Silverado Co-Founder and CEO Loren Shook in a statement. “We look forward to partnering with these professional communities and establishing affiliations with those who share our compassion for this underserved population.”
The current census in both communities is pretty high, says Mullin. “Occupancy was OK when we got in the door, and now it’s great,” he says.
Irvine, Calif.-based Silverado now operates memory care communities in California, Texas, Arizona, Utah, Illinois, and Washington, in addition to offering home care (Life Care Management) and hospice services through its subsidiary service lines, Silverado At Home and Silverado Hospice, for a total of 36 operating locations.
