Longtime residents of Mercer Island know the best part of living here has always been the community. When you’re tucked away slightly off the beaten path, neighbors tend to look out for each other and make that extra effort to build relationships.
At Island House MBK Senior Living, residents and staff have held onto that island philosophy, and you’ll notice a warm, family feeling as soon as you step inside the boutique senior community.
“It’s an intimate setting where residents really care about each other and take the time to get to know their neighbors,” says Katrina Ondracek, Executive Director of Island House MBK Senior Living. “One gentleman just moved in a week and a half ago, and already has new friends. His family is so happy for him — they said Dad was so lonely at home, and now look at him!”
Serving the Island’s seniors since 1989
Island House is a tight-knit community of 79 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments in the heart of town center. About half of the seniors live independently, and half take advantage of assisted living services like medication monitoring, mobility assistance and nursing needs. You can move in as a young senior and age in place.
“Our team establishes relationships with each of our residents — not just their health history but also their preferences and personality. Each person brings their own stories, experiences, and values and together we create a strong and diverse community where we support each other,” Ondracek says.
Residents have a wide selection of amenities to enrich their day-to-day lives:
- 3 chef-prepared daily meals in the restaurant with all-day dining.
- Mind and body wellness events for all your passions, from watercolour painting to weights, TED Talk debates to trivia.
- Housekeeping and laundry in each apartment.
- 24-hours a day care services, seven days a week.
- Complimentary transportation.
- Garden courtyard, fitness studio, bistro and private dining room.
“We want Island House to feel like your home, not a hotel. Of course we offer a wide variety of luxury services, but everything is personalized. It’s all catered to our community’s changing needs.”
