About the Cristwood Community

Cristwood in Shoreline, WA, offers a retirement community for independent living and assisted living in the midst of a community of young and old professionals and volunteers.  

The history of CRISTA started on our Cristwood campus and now is home to five very distinct ministries., including World Concern, CRISTA Media, and King’s Schools.

And our residents also have the opportunity to visit CRISTA Camps on the Peninsula for special events.

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.
