New assisted living and memory care community to be opened by Koelsch Communities

$93 million facility planned to open next Spring after construction.

Koelsch Communities say they are on schedule to open a new campus called Belle Harbour in Spring 2022.

The 2.89 acre campus, located at 2110 116th Ave NE, will offer over 140 senior living suites divided between two separate senior living communities.

CEO of Koelsch Communities, Aaron Koelsch, said the Belle Harbour campus will include an assisted living community for more independent residents as well as a memory care community focused on catering to and protecting residents with memory loss.

“Our number one job with people experiencing memory loss is to keep them safe in this environment,” Koelsch said.

The memory care community will be staffed with caretakers “intensely,” trained to care for individuals with memory loss, according to Koelsch.

The memory care community is designed to include a nostalgic “Main Street,” made to look like a mid-century American town, with an ice cream shop and antique cars included.

The $93 million dollar project, expected to be completed in the next 12 months, was designed with details in mind. It includes parlors, game rooms, dining rooms, patios and terraces.

Koelsch said once complete, the facility will be staffed with nearly 180 employees, including chefs and licensed nurses, and will have a collective payroll of $350,000 a month.

This will be Koelsch Communities’ fourteenth property in the state of Washington.
