Owned by Century Park Associates, Harbor Place at Cottesmore in Gig Harbor has provided seniors a beautiful place to call home since 2006.
“Century Park was founded on the tradition of caring for seniors, and the services and care we provide integrate entirely with those of Life Care Centers of America, our sister company,” said Sue Wilhelm, the campus sales and marketing director for Harbor Place at Cottesmore.
Making the transition from living in one’s own home to either an independent retirement or assisted living community can be difficult for some. But at Harbor Place at Cottesmore residents are thrilled about the truly unique lifestyle it offers.
With elegant amenities integrated with the comforts of home, residents can enjoy a carefree retirement and enjoy doing those things they enjoy.
“We cater to our residents with delicious chef-prepared, restaurant style meals with an extensive all day fine dining menu, housekeeping services and scheduled transportation,” said Wilhelm.
The staff at Harbor Place encourages their residents to remain active, so they maintain a full calendar of social and recreational activities to choose from. The activities planned also allow the residents to explore new experiences. Some of the things in which residents can engage in include shopping excursions, cultural events, educational seminars and local outings.
With no buy-in fees and convenient monthly leases for their residents, Wilhelm said the staff is committed to providing exceptional service and so much more.
“We are a family,” said Wilhelm. “Our warm, caring associates are dedicated to creating a community you will be proud to call home, and we are available to provide personal assistance if and when you need a helping hand.”
Harbor Place provides excellent expertise and care. The service they provide extends beyond the residents to the residents’ families as well. It is important that loved ones know their family member is being well cared for. The Cottesmore campus setting offers skilled nursing and rehabilitation services at Cottesmore of Life Care located next door to Harbor Place. Residents are able to access therapy services to help them work through life’s unexpected obstacles.
“Our management team longevity is very unique; our newest manager has worked at Harbor Place for eight years,” said Wilhelm of the dedicated staff.
Century Park Associates recently awarded the Assisted Living Community of the Year to Harbor Place at Cottesmore. It is an honor that Wilhelm said they are grateful for and credits Harbor Place Associates, Harbor Place Residents and the Gig Harbor community with helping them achieve.
In appreciation of the support they have received over the last decade from the Gig Harbor community, many who work at Harbor Place Cottesmore give back to the place they call home in countless ways. Some of their volunteer activities include Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North, Galloping Gertie Half Marathon, Courage Classic, Turkey Trot, Pierce County Friends and Athletes, Relay for Life, Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Aging Smart Network, Gig Harbor Senior Center, Health Care Providers of Pierce County, Gig Harbor Fire Health and Safety Expos, Fall Prevention Expos, Cascade Regional Blood Drive Host, Community Car Shows, Community Outdoor Concerts, Operation Christmas Child, and FISH and Key Peninsula Food Banks.
Wilhelm summed up the feeling of all who work at Harbor Place best when she expressed her joy at helping others live their life to the fullest. “It’s an honor to serve our seniors and give them many opportunities to thoroughly enjoy their retirement years,” she said.
