However, we have found that these activities are not being participated by all of our residents. We have found a better approach to meet all the needs of our residents by providing activities by which each resident’s physical and cognitive abilities can be met. This approach is being done daily by our staff and if needed one-on-one activities are being done with each client.

A few comments from resident's family.
Dear Winnah and Bernard,
As you’ve heard me say many times, we looked and looked for a home for Mom and Dad and we weren’t happy until we found A Kind Heart. The name completely sums up the loving care you provided them. We learned by looking that the single most important part of a great place is only THE PEOPLE and what’s in their hearts when they care for their resident family.
Mom and Dad really enjoyed being at AKH, which was such a relief to all of us in the family. We hated to have them living away from a family member, but they needed a lot of help with daily care and none of us were able to manage it. AKH provided them with a safe, loving, caring home where they felt truly at home. They loved the people, the food and their surroundings. When we made frequent visits, we were always welcomed and had fun with Mom and Dad, as well as the staff.
One part that was unique and should be mentioned. As they approached the end of their lives, they didn’t have to re-locate and start over by getting to know a new group of care givers or new surroundings at a nursing home or other end of life place which would have been very depressing. Being able to stay at A Kind Heart was a HUGE plus for them and the family. It was such a relief to know they were home and wouldn’t have to move again. I think being at AKH helped them live longer, happier lives. Naturally, they are deeply missed, but at least we know they were in good hands until the end. Dad was 99 and Mom was 95.
Thank you again for your special gifts of loving care. It helped our entire family more then you know.

I want to thank all of you that took care of Mom. We all felt that we were very lucky to have found your home. We were made to feel a part of your family and that Mom had another family there. I know that it made Mom very happy to have your children call her Grandma Marie. I saw her light up when they did. Thank you for the help and support with the doctors and hospital stays that was more than we could even expected.
Best wishes from us all.
Karl K., Edmonds, WA
Dear Winnah & Bernard,
We don’t know what we would have done had we not found your beautiful adult family home and all of your wonderful people that took such good care of our Mom.
Thank you so much for the beautiful edible fruit bouquet and the gorgeous flower heart you sent to Mom’s funeral. The flowers added so much warmth to a very sad day. For all the great parties you put on for the people living there that all of us were invited to attend. Dr. Scarr was a blessing you lead us to.
We can’t thank Rex & Rissa enough for the wonderful care and attention they gave Mom. It takes special people to do what they do so well and they truly very special.
So many things to thank all of you for. Pleases to know your kindness and thoughtfulness is sincerely appreciated.
Gary and Barbara E.
In case I forget to in all of this I just want to let you know how much I appreciate all you have done. I felt so comfortable leaving Mom in your care, it was a huge weight off my shoulders when we moved her in – And while we both know she was not a happy person she was a very well cared for and couldn’t have been in a safer place. I will always be grateful for A Kind Heart and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your homes to anyone who might ask.
Again, my sincere thanks to both you and Bernard and all the staff.
Cynthia T., Seattle

This is a very short list of agencies that can offer help. We will do all we can to help you find the right solution for whatever comes up and we will also cooperate with any of these (and other) agencies designed to help your loved ones. Our goal is to help all our residents as if they are our own family.
VA Benefits are often available to help people who served in the armed forces to qualify for financial assistance. Contact Veteran’s Administration for details.
Evergreen Hospice. A highly recommended of caring people who will make sure loved ones are comfortable and family is kept aware of what’s going on.
Funeral Arrangements in advance. It might sound sad and cold to discuss, but it’s a good way to eliminate worries and a way to make sure all the details of a sad occasion are handled, so you can focus on the loss of a loved one.
You are invited to call or email to set a time to come visit, so you will see first-hand that we're the same as we are represented here online.
