City Beat News Honors Senior Living Communities in Washington with Spectrum Awards

City Beat News’ most recent group of Spectrum Award recipients includes four senior living communities in Washington, both repeat and first-time winners.

Lapeer, MI, April 25, 2019 --( Recently, four senior living communities in Washington were honored by City Beat News with Spectrum Awards for outstanding customer/patient satisfaction ratings. All four communities are managed by CarePartners, a locally owned and operated management company serving western Washington with 11 senior living communities, including assisted living and memory care facilities.

Vineyard Park at Mountlake Terrace ( is the perfect alternative for seniors who can no longer live on their own at home but don’t need 24-hour, complex medical supervision. The retirement community includes assisted living options with personalized assistance, support services and compassionate care in a professionally managed, carefully designed setting. Additionally, dementia care is available in a secure, specialized cottages lane on the facility’s top floor and offers the exclusive Bonded Pairs Program where residents with dementia don’t have to be separated from their spouse or significant other because of varying care needs. The focus at Vineyard Park at Mountlake Terrace is on wellness and keeping residents as independent as possible by providing a tailored plan for each individual. Amenities include beautifully appointed living spaces, delicious meals, engaging social activities and transportation. The community has earned five consecutive Spectrum Awards; visit its Award Page at

Vineyard Park at Bothell Landing ( is an assisted living community within a senior-focused neighborhood nestled on the southern shore of the Sammamish River. Bothell Landing is anchored by the Northshore Senior Center, one of the largest and most dynamic senior centers on the West Coast. Additional amenities at Vineyard Park include on-site beauty/barber shops, stores and more. The retirement community is the ideal solution for seniors who need some help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and medication reminders, but also want the comforts of home.

The Cottages at Edgewood ( is a memory care community that offers residents individual attention provided by a professionally managed, highly trained and compassionate staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Ideally located in downtown Edgewood with easy access to all services, the community includes three self-contained cottages with 20 residents living in each. The cottages are secure and open into an outside courtyard to allow residents to stroll, exercise and enjoy open space and fresh air. Just opened in 2015, the community earned its first Spectrum Award this year; visit its Award Page at

The Cottages at University Place ( is another memory care community with three cozy cottages that each hold a maximum of 20 residents. This design concept allows residents to receive the one-on-one care and personal attention they deserve in a familiar, intimate, calm and safe environment. Each cottage is self-contained with its own kitchen, dining room, laundry, living room area with fireplace, and private resident rooms. Residents create a sense of truly being at home by personalizing their bedrooms with familiar furnishings and cherished mementos.
