Retirement Living Where You Can Find
Connection and Joy in Everyday Living

Premier independent and assisted living retirement communities in Seattle, Renton, Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Issaquah

Era Living retirement communities help you stay engaged and connected—while covering the cooking, cleaning, care if you need it, and more. Locally and family owned and operated, our mission is to honor older adults by enhancing the quality of their lives. We value arts, culture, and beauty, and you would never think of the word “facility” when you walk onto one of our beautiful senior living properties. You’ll find meticulously landscaped gardens with year-round color, elegant common spaces with Chihuly glass and rotating, professionally curated artwork, exquisite cuisine, and a caring staff that feels like family. We believe in a holistic approach to healthy aging that considers the mind, body, and spirit, and our extensive activity calendars are designed to help you thrive. We are proud of our long-standing partnerships with the University of Washington Schools of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work, which help us bring education, support, and evidence-informed wellness programming to our residents. Whether you choose to live independently, or are seeking assisted living care, our compassionate services are designed with your unique lifestyle in mind.

We have a diverse staff and welcome residents from all backgrounds. We aim to create inclusive, mutually respectful environments for employees, residents, and family members regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, ability, gender identity, etc. Learn more about what you can expect to find at all Era Living retirement communities in the greater Seattle area.



COVID-19 Update: How we are protecting our senior living communities

At Era Living, the safety, health, and emotional well-being of our residents and staff is our top priority. We took swift, robust measures to protect our residents and staff when COVID-19 became an imminent threat in our state and are proud of our overall results. We are grateful to report that at least 89% of our residents and staff are vaccinated, and we have been following the state’s guidance on returning to normal life in our retirement communities.

What Others Have To Say
  • I cannot imagine a better place to be during this extraordinary time. For everything that has been lost being in quarantine, an alternative has been provided.

    - Linda, resident of Aljoya Thornton Place
  • The #COVID19 outbreak that DIDN’T happen in independent & assisted living community. Even with many vulnerable people, physical distancing can succeed!

    - Tom Frieden, former CDC director
  • I am completely convinced that my being here has been my greatest safeguard. I don’t feel like I could be in a safer place.

    - Van, resident of The Gardens at Town Square
  • On March 6 the center’s administration, staff and residents instituted stringent infection prevention measures. These included physical distancing, in-room isolation with no communal meals or activities, visitor restrictions, exclusion of ill staff, and stricter hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting practices. All of these are now CDC guidelines for coronavirus prevention in independent and assisted living communities.

    - UW Medicine, Newsroom
  • I feel younger now. I am eating better and exercising more. My son doesn’t worry about me so much because he receives regular email updates from our Executive Director. We know exactly what is going on and it makes me feel confident about living here.

  • With test results in hand and the invisible COVID-19 cases revealed, Ida Culver House was able to squelch an outbreak.

  • Choose a place where you can live like you do at home, but without the headaches! And it's not just where you live. Choose how you want to live.
