Resident Reviews

"John and I moved to Foundation House at Northgate and like it very much! I walk to everything—the gym, Northgate Mall, the movie theatre, transit center, copy center, Weight Watchers, Target, Best Buy, etc. John participates in more of the activities than I do and that's a switch!"
~ Jessie

"We went on a trip to the Tacoma Art Museum and I think that Mary and Ryan are so organized with everything they do. Their driving is wonderful and we never have to worry. What they do makes it easy to go on these trips. It is so appreciated. Their service is "over the top". Thank you for making life here so easy."

"Foundation House is small enough to know everyone by first name."
~ Ruth


"My children know that I am in a very good and safe place. Interesting residents embrace me and together we are on the path into the autumn of our life. I am glad I don't have to cook anymore. Steve takes good care of that. Mary and Ryan move us around. I will enjoy the upcoming art class. All staff members are kind and helpful. Washer and dryer (in my apartment) are a big plus. No regrets of moving here."
~ Gertrud

"Many of the staff members have been here a long time. They are friendly, helpful and caring. I appreciate having my own washer, dryer and kitchen in my apartment. Convenient shopping is within walking distance. A variety of activities is offered so there is something for everyone. I especially enjoy Bingo, Wii Bowling, van rides, guest musicians, choir, art/craft classes, exercises and social time afterward."
