Sequoia Senior Living Provides All-Inclusive Care to Support Every Need

Sequoia Senior Living first opened its doors in 1996, and in 2022 underwent an incredible remodel to make the community more modern. This million-dollar investment really revitalized the shared spaces and individual rooms, giving residents a relaxing environment to call home.

They provide assisted living and hospice care, so residents can get the care they need for every phase of aging. “Assisted living provides 24-hour care, 365 days a year, with staff on each floor dedicated to keeping every resident safe and happy,” shares Marketing Director Lark Church. All daily needs are cared for with kindness and support, and each resident is issued a pendant they can press in case of emergency for immediate assistance, any time of the day or night.

In addition to routine care, Sequoia Senior Living also includes housekeeping, transportation, maintenance, and meals throughout the day so you can sit back and relax. Instead of being bogged down with cleaning, cooking, or home repairs, you can spend your time doing the things you really enjoy. “We have a great chef who is very passionate about feeding our residents whatever they need, especially through fresh ingredients and homemade food,” explains Lark. “We have a bus driver to take residents out shopping, to appointments, and even on field trips in the area, such as Lakefair or to see Christmas lights during the holidays.”

These main areas of care are specified individually for every resident to ensure their unique needs are met every day. When a resident is getting ready to move in, the Sequoia Senior Living care team identifies all of their needs and develops a plan to support their daily living and provide whatever assistance is needed. “Every person is different, so our staff work with each person to establish schedules that work for them,” Lark says. “We have a very community-driven environment, so it is really like living with a big family.” The staff are one of the most noteworthy aspects of this close-knit assisted living community, and really make the whole place feel like a big, welcoming home. 

Sequoia Senior Living Keeps Fun and Connection Alive through Activities and Entertainment

Sequoia Senior Living is excited about creating opportunities for residents to explore their passions, take on new hobbies and socialize with their neighbors. “One of the worst things we can do as we get older is isolate ourselves, so we like to help people get connected,” Lark shares. “There are a lot of friendships that are developed here, which is important for mental and emotional health.” Rather than being alone in a big house, residents of Sequoia Senior Living can mingle and mix in the shared spaces, chat together at meal time, or take trips out into the community together. This type of environment can really help with living a full and purposeful life even as mobility and health changes happen.

One of the best parts about Sequoia Senior Living is the packed activities calendar, giving residents plenty of opportunities to connect and experience something new. During holidays, the community likes to feature themed gatherings and invites special entertainers to bring the festivities to life. “We have special events quarterly and host a family night every month with entertainment and games,” says Lark. “It’s a time for everyone to come together with their loved ones and enjoy some great food and fun.” Dancers, musicians, and more are invited throughout Thurston, Mason, Lewis, and Pierce counties to bring an exciting new vibe to gatherings.

Outside of these featured events, Sequoia Senior Living offers daily and weekly activities for residents to enjoy. Fan favorites like bingo and trivia are offered frequently to bring people together for a little friendly competition, while therapeutic activities like art and chair yoga give residents a space for self-care. Having a consistent calendar gives residents something fun to look forward to in their free time, and creates a natural space for friends to meet and spend quality time together.
