The new Bellevue community, which will be the second for Aegis in Bellevue, will include a wide array of amenities including a private movie theater, library, massage and salon. To facilitate a vibrant lifestyle, Aegis residents will be encouraged to enjoy a large variety of services including the brain gym, food theatre kitchen, card room, craft room, full exercise gym, activity garden and outdoor sensory garden for Memory Care. The
community also will include secured underground parking and will offer a variety of dining options for residents including patio dining, private dining room, and bistro.
