One of the best ways to make the most out of Life Plan Communities or Senior Living Communities is to take part in group activities. New residents at CRISTA Senior Living find many events, classes, and social gatherings to enjoy. Amenities and activities range from exercise classes to performances by King’s students to outings in the community of Silverdale, and Shoreline and Seattle, WA. Each offers an opportunity for seniors to meet new people and engage in activities that they may not have accessed before.
When residents become engaged in the community at CRISTA, they quickly realize how much fun they can have. After several months of living at Cristwood Park, a new resident told our community manager, “I am having a hard time eating all of my dinner because my tablemates and I spend too much time laughing and talking. We’re usually the last ones in the dining room each evening because we enjoy our time of laughter, conversation, and just being together.”
In addition to taking part in community organized activities, CRISTA Senior Living also offers a wide array of recreational opportunities such as a swimming pool, fitness center, walking trails, gardens, and more. Taking advantage of these amenities is a great way for residents to stay active and healthy physically and mentally.
Another great way to make the most of your new community is to take advantage of onsite services. Life Plan and Senior Living communities often have amenities like salons, transportation, concierge services, and more, available right at your fingertips. Taking advantage of these conveniences not only makes life easier for residents but can also be a great opportunity to socialize.
Making the most of your new community also means exploring the surrounding area and getting involved with local organizations and events. CRISTA Senior Living provides transportation to locations in the heart of Shoreline, WA and on Dyes Inlet in Silverdale, WA. There are plenty of sightseeing opportunities, cultural attractions, shopping, dining, entertainment, and more. In addition, there are churches, museums, libraries, parks, beaches, and other points of interest that are great sources of enrichment for residents.
Living in Life Plan or Senior Living Communities should open up new doors for growth and exploration. By taking part in community events, activities, and programs as well as exploring the surrounding area, these communities can provide a fulfilling experience for their residents.

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.

Exceptional personalized holistic care. Helps keep Mom’s mind active and she flourishes with the nurturing care. Especially of value currently given the COVID restrictions. We are genuinely pleased with our mom's care.
