The Village Retirement Center was built in 1963 as the fulfillment of a vision of some Seventh-day Adventist businessmen in the Pacific Northwest. It has served seniors of this community ever since, filling a need in the area for reasonably priced, not-for-profit senior housing.
In 1973, the ‘Villa North’ section was added to The Village family to serve the needs of those looking for smaller units.
In 1990 The Village added its Prestige Living option, offering three meals a day and some housekeeping services for those living in the Prestige area.
In 2006, The Village added the Redwoods – seven apartments with larger floor plans and extra amenities.
In 2011, The Village combined all of the areas as one operation in service to Seniors from around the United States and around the world.
Today The Village covers 15 acres and offers a total of 153 apartments.
Our Vision Statement
The outlook of The Village for the future is reflected in its vision statement:
As part of our service and our legacy, The Village realizes that living with purpose is important to everyone. We promote volunteering and service not only in our community but also in the community around us. We feel that everyone can be of service to others in some way.
We who serve here are dedicated to providing a nurturing environment within a well-maintained campus of independent homes.
To fulfill that vision, The Village is remodeling units as they become vacant. They are offering modern amenities as well as making them even more ‘senior-friendly’ by offering additional ADA options. Units are being increased in size. Studio apartments are being remodeled into larger apartments. Sidewalks are being upgraded and new siding has been installed. The vision is transforming The Village into a modern center for Senior Living.
At The Village Retirement Center, we strive to operate under the following values in all that we do:
A. Christian Compassion: Demonstrating to all we serve; grace, mercy, and tender love as reflected in the philosophy of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
B. Financial Responsibility: Maintaining honest, competent, and ethical financial practices.
C. Communication: Providing forthright, open, and direct dialogue.
D. Creativity: Pursuing innovative solutions, creative ideas, and ongoing improvements.
E. Servant Leadership: Leading with consideration, care, and service throughout the organization.
F. Respect: Honoring both residents and staff by maintaining high professional standards of conduct.
G. Dignity: Valuing each person throughout the aging process.
H. Enrichment: Providing an environment and activities that foster joy and fulfillment.
I. Customer Satisfaction: Providing excellent service that exceeds expectations.
The Village looks forward to continuing its service to seniors and their families for generations to come.
