Senior Fitness & Exercise


 

Providing opportunities for residents to stay active and fit is a key component of daily life at Daystar. Because senior fitness has a big impact on quality of life, we strive to offer a variety of ways that residents can participate in their own health and wellness.

The entire back portion of Daystar's campus is our beautiful park-like setting with a walking path, gardens, and other natural elements to afford residents a peaceful morning watching the sunrise, a relaxing afternoon walk, and a serene evening watching the sunset if so desired. These gardens are available to wander through so residents really can stop and smell the roses! The walking trail stretches across the entire length of the property.

In addition to the gardens and walking path, residents regularly utilize the courtyard area with grills for spontaneous and planned cookouts. Hot dogs and smores are common foods of choice. Residents can also enjoy the patio area.

Transportation


Buses run by Daystar

 

Daystar’s buses will take groups of residents to a general area on specific days during the week to attend to errands or simply enjoy a day out. Westwood Village is just across the street with banks, groceries, retail stores, and restaurants. Daystar is also just a few minutes from Highline Hospital, Group Health Co-op and many doctors.

Doctor Appointment Runs

You don’t have to keep paying for car insurance or maintenance just to make it to your scheduled doctor’s appointments. Our Daystar bus runs residents to the local medical hub twice per week.

Group Shopping Outings

We like to get our residents out and about more than just for practical things. That’s why we send a bus out twice a week for residents to enjoy a day out at Westwood Village.

Walking Group Outings

We also have a walking group here at Daystar who take scheduled trips to walking trails and new areas every month or so, like to the Tulip Fields.

For residents who need individualized transportation outside of the scheduled buses provided by Daystar, taxi services like Uber and Lyft are commonly used. Residents sometimes have another resident drive them as well.

Residents have access to a monthly and weekly activities calendar that will mark activities or trips off campus. This calendar can be viewed online and is also printed and posted throughout common areas. Residents can always RSVP at the front desk. The activities calendar will denote “RSVP” beside the event listing if you need to reserve your spot in advance.

 In general, bus transportation is provided on the following schedule:

  • Sundays - Church Transportation
  • Thursdays - Morning and Afternoon shopping trips (Banks, QFC, Fred Meyer, Rite Aid, Public Library)
  • Fridays - Scenic Van Ride
  • Off-Campus Outing once a week. (Tulip Fields, museums, movie theater, art exhibits, or any local attraction)
  • Doctor’s Appointment Runs twice per week

 

On-Site Parking

We do have on-site parking lots scattered throughout the entire campus. There is open parking and guests do NOT need to have a parking pass or anything to utilize the parking lots when visiting loved ones.

Covered parking is available if desired for an additional $30 per month. 

Non-covered is first come first served.

Homey Senior Living Options


Senior Houses & Apartments

 

You have two choices for senior living at Daystar. Based on your needs and desires you can choose our independent or assisted living retirement living option. The main difference is the level of care you or your loved one needs. If mobility isn't an issue you'll likely choose independent living. If, however you have trouble with tasks of everyday living, such as getting dressed, assisted living may be the better option. Each of our residency plans emphasizes flexibility, comfort, privacy, and as much independence as you want.
