BIZNOTE: West Seattle senior-living complex changes name but not ownership

What was Daystar Retirement Village at 2615 SW Barton is now Village Green Senior Living (WSB sponsor). We photographed executive director Eva Thomas and CEO Monte Powell at a reception this week celebrating the change:

The company’s Federal Way complex also is named Village Green: “We feel that branding both campuses under one name promotes continuity within our organization and our philosophy, which is simple – we believe that all people deserve to be treated with kindness and respect, especially when needs change and a helping hand is needed.” The company notes that the Powell family, rooted in regional home construction, founded the company after they “began to take notice of the lack of services, community, and opportunity available for seniors.” Village Green in West Seattle offers independent living, assisted living, and short-term care. Signage changes are planned soon – permits are pending.

    What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell …

    Despite what the expensive ad agency tells you.

    The name doesn’t matter- this organization was an amazing home for my dad! He moved into the independent living, then transitioned into assisted living. They supported him (and us) lovingly and respectfully during his decline and eventual passing. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. His only regret was not moving in sooner when he had more energy for all the fun activities!

Sorry, comment time is over.
