Island House hosts ‘grand opening’ with residents, community

The Mercer Island assisted living facility was recently remodeled.

Island House Assisted Living hosted a grand opening on July 31, welcoming the community to explore its recently remodeled facility. Many of the common spaces had been renovated and redecorated, with an emphasis on the “island” theme.

At the event, staff offered tours, refreshments, a gourmet “World Food Tour” and a variety of live entertainment, including music and a virtual reality experience.

A ribbon cutting was held in the private interior courtyard. Other amenities are: a private dining room, welcoming library, parlor for socializing, activities center, beauty salon and barber shop and landscaped grounds and walking paths.

Island House offers a choice of living options, including assisted living, independent living, and short-term/respite stays. It is located in downtown Mercer Island, at 7810 SE 30th St.
