Senior Living Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Who lives here at Daystar? Tell me about the people who live here. Daystar residents are just like you. They might hail from Montana or Missouri, eastern Washington or southern California. Some enjoy a game of Bridge; others are crazy about old radio programs; many love the Symphony, the ballet, and a good play. Daystar residents make good neighbors and good friends because they care about people. Like you, they are looking for companionship with folks in their age group, who like doing the things they like to do.
What if I need more help in the future? Daystar offers up to five levels of assistance. We can help you with a shower or remind you to take your morning medication. Our professional, caring staff will provide the physical support you need whether you are recovering from an injury or illness, or have long-term needs requiring daily attention. You can be confident that you can remain in your home here unless you require skilled nursing services.
How do I get my errands done and get a ride if I need one? The Daystar bus takes residents shopping and to doctor's appointments on scheduled days every week. If you need transportation outside of our normal schedule, there are several options available to you and we are happy to help you make arrangements.
How close is Daystar to the closest hospital? Daystar is very close to some of the northwest’s best medical care. Just a short drive to the local hospital and minutes from a selection of local doctors' offices. Schedule a simple appointment, or access an area hospital for more immediate care.
What if I have my own car? Can I keep it at Daystar? Absolutely. We have free parking onsite for residents and for their guests.
What is a non-intrusive well-being check?
Twice a day — once in the morning and once again in the evening — our residents let us know that they are well by placing a sign on their apartment door handle. Our staff takes note of the signal, but they do not disturb you in the process unless the sign is not there. In addition, at meal times, we note who is present and who is not. If the resident is absent, we call the resident’s apartment to check on his/her well being.
Can my family share a meal with me? Of course! We'd love to meet your family. Many of our residents’ families get to know each other over a meal at Daystar. Families are encouraged to come and enjoy meals with residents, and get to know the staff, and we foster these relationships. Throughout the year, we host brunches, lunches and special events to which family and friends are invited.
Can I have a meal tray delivered to my apartment?
Certainly! We offer up to three deliveries a month at no charge. Sometimes our residents require delivery of your meals for a longer period of time, and we can gladly arrange that as well for a nominal delivery fee.
