What makes CRISTA Different

When visitors walk through our community, we often hear them say, “There is something different here”. We believe that is because our residents and staff are brought together by common values and beliefs. We serve together, staff and residents, giving everyone an equal sense of purpose and commitment. Our staff work here because it is a calling to serve seniors; seniors live here because they are called to be part of a community that provides fellowship as well as opportunities to continue serving. This is CRISTA Senior Living (CSL) and this is exactly why visitors feel something different when walking through our communities.

CRISTA SENIOR LIVING offers two communities: Cristwood in Shoreline, which is a 55-acre, Life Plan Community (Continuous Care Retirement Community or CCRC) and Crista Shores, on the waterfront in Silverdale. Collectively we serve over 600 seniors and have a 70-year legacy committed to excellence rooted in our Christian faith. That legacy, in no way, suggests that we are an old fashioned “Senior Home”. Quite the opposite! We are a, vibrant, highly diverse, weave of people interested in growth, inclusion, and fellowship. Our Independent Living options range from simple studios to large luxurious two-bedroom suites. Our Assisted Living offers traditional care options and on our Shoreline Campus, we have exceptional service in our Memory Care Unit. In short, we are an all-encompassing community.

Our two campuses are uniquely different. Crista Shores is in Silverdale overlooking Dye’s Inlet offering residents with waterfront board walks that provide some amazing bird and wildlife watching. Cristwood is in the heart of Shoreline, sitting on 55 beautifully landscaped acres and shares the campus with other CRISTA Ministries providing unlimited opportunities to engage with local and global ministry work. One of the unique features on the Shoreline campus is the proximity to King’s School (pre-school through high school). On any given day you will find young people and our seniors interacting. King’s school and CSL strive to find ways to intentionally engage students with seniors. These multigenerational events provide sharing and purpose to both students and seniors.

As you walk around our campus’s what you will experience, more than anything, is a sense of community and belonging. The bases of that belonging is our long-rooted legacy of Christian Faith. Here at CRISTA Senior Living our values are deeply rooted in faith. This unites us in a way that is truly unique. We strive to cultivate a community where seniors and staff experience grace and discover renewed purpose”.

We invite you to come tour our Community and feel what makes CRISTA Senior Living different.

What People Are Saying …

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.
