About Us

Heart is the Core of Every Chateau Community

The Chateau Retirement Communities family is motivated by empathy, dignity, and respect for those we serve. We are committed to providing the best independent living, assisted living and memory care at our senior living locations in Bothell, Lynnwood and Renton. The bond between our employees and residents is deep.

Engage your mind, body, and spirit – your way!

We commit to treating every retirement community resident as if they were our only customer. Our mission is to co-create individualized retirement lifestyles for each resident, whether they choose independent living, assisted living, or memory care.

 

Enjoy delicious and nutritious meals and robust, diverse community activities that entertain, engage and enhance the body, mind and spirit.

 

Our core values and mission statement is present in every decision – from planning important management policy, to planning a scenic bus tour.

 

Why choose us? We invite you to come visit one of our retirement communities and ask a resident why they chose our senior living experience – and more importantly, why they choose to stay.

A Little About Us

At Chateau Retirement Communities, we’re proud of over 25 years of serving our customers as a locally-owned company. Our commitment to the region and the core values of our family-owned and operated company informs everything we do.

 

From the high-quality construction and finishes of our elegant yet cozy and home-like communities to the exceptional amenities and services we offer, we’re proud of our reputation as a compassionate, professional leader in the retirement and assisted living industry.

 

Above all, the respect and reputation we enjoy among our residents, their family members, and the larger community is our greatest accomplishment.

 

What drives the heart of the Chateau brand is just that – heart. Residents refer their friends and loved ones to our community – the highest possible compliment – because they feel part of a family. Our Chateau family is motivated by true empathy, dignity, and respect for those we serve.

 

Chateau Retirement residents talk about a true sense of belonging. Of being part of a larger senior living community that genuinely cares. For their wants – and desires. The relationships that develop in our Chateau family inspire employees to get up and go to work in the morning. It’s why our residents to call our retirement communities home.
