Many people say home is where your heart is. At Avamere at Port Townsend, an assisted and independent living community, this is just as true for the employees as it is for the residents.
The team works hard to provide a caring environment for all their residents. They gather together each morning to discuss residents’ wants and needs.
Their efforts center around Avamere’s mission: “To enhance the life of every person we serve.” One of the ways they uphold this is by listening to their residents’ needs. They encourage residents to share their voice during their monthly resident town hall meetings.
To meet recent wants and needs, they provide fresh local vegetables in their dining rooms – something the residents love!
Avamere at Port Townsend is proud of their strong clinical teams and devoted leadership who work to make the community a better place.
“Our dedicated leaders have created a strong culture at Avamere at Port Townsend,” affirms Alex McVay, Regional Director of Operations.
A full activities calendar keeps the residents involved. They can join clubs, like book club and bingo. Especially popular are the visits from preforming groups on “Wine Wednesdays.”
Avamere at Port Townsend also takes their residents on day trips to the beach, zoo, or other local areas. They even have the freedom to run errands and come and go as they please on the Avamere bus.
The team is truly involved in the residents’ lives and enjoys getting to know each one of them.
The personal connection the team has with their residents is what makes this place not just a building – but a home.
