Woah! Is it Halloween time already? Where did October go?! No matter how fast life is flying by for us all, we try to stop and smell the roses occasionally here at Pacific Regent. Or in this case, speed by pretty leaves while it's cold and rainy. Last week, we took a Halloween-themed train ride […]
A few weeks ago, we loaded up the bus and headed South to the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park for a day of animals and nature! One of the residents recommended this park to me, and after a few months of trying to schedule it, we were finally able to make it happen. This trip was […]
Sometimes we go on local outings... sometimes we venture out a little farther! Sometimes our outings have so many people signing up that we need to start a waitlist, and sometimes it's not about quantity of residents signed up, but quality of the trip. Last week, three of us woke up very early to catch […]
At the beginning of every month, we put out a new batch of sign-up sheets for that month. While some offerings are less popular, many others are spilling over with residents clambering for a spot. The Woodland Park Zoo is a Seattle favorite for many people - it's a well-done, well-kept, large, happy zoo just on the outskirts […]
Here at Pacific Regent, we get to do some very special things quite often. One of our most cherished outings is our annual trip to a Mariner's Game! With beautiful views, wonderful food, and the Moose visiting us, it was a perfect day for a ballgame! Plus it didn't hurt that the Mariner's WON!!
Earlier this month, a small group from our community took a short trip around the corner to the women and children's shelter, "Sophia's Way" to donate approximately 30 coffee mugs and tour their facility. We learned that about 20 women who are experiencing homelessness are welcomed to call Sophia's Way home for six months while they work to […]
On Tuesday, March 21st our new Community Life Director, Erin Sattler, took 11 of our residents to the Starbucks Roastery & Tasting Room located in Capitol Hill in Seattle! The residents took a short self-guided tour around the facility, getting to learn about the process it takes for Starbucks' reserve coffee beans to be roasted and distributed to […]
Today, we took a trip to the Heathman Hotel in Downtown Kirkland to enjoy an afternoon of tea and wonderful goodies. From choosing our favorite teas and sampling the towers of sweet and savory bites, we definitely did not leave hungry! The patio was heated and the sun was out so we had a small respite […]
On Friday, we attended the Seattle Art Museum's presentation of Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, showcasing highlights from the legendary designer’s 44-year career. Drawn from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition featured new acquisitions by the Foundation that have never been shown publicly before. The exhibit was a sight to […]
The residents here at Pacific Regent Bellevue have spent the last month collecting toys and food to help some wonderful organizations. We collected toys to support the Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation, who has sponsored the Holiday Toy Drive to benefit Crossroads Community Center for the past several years. We were able to deliver our load of toys, […]
Make no mistake about it, Pacific Regent Bellevue residents love watching the Mariners. So when they were given the opportunity to enjoy the game from the owner’s box at Safeco Field on May 11th, 2016, it was a thrilling time for all. The Snohomish Times also published an article about the extraordinary outing on June 5th, […]
For the 3rd year in a row, we attended the Overlake Bandage Ball. Yes, we enjoyed every minute of it! This year, the Overlake Medical Center Foundation and Auxiliaries raised nearly $1,000,000 in support of Mental Health Services. Our live auction donation of 10 downtown Bellvue dining experiences coupled with a night stay at the Hyatt raised over $4,000 […]
