The health and safety of our residents and staff is our highest priority. Read about our response to COVID-19.
In the summer of 1957, the Rose Villa retirement community was conceived, originally envisioned as a neighborhood of single-level, garden-apartment style homes for middle-income elders. Initial plans for the site included 90 units on 6 acres, but these plans expanded to 195 units on 13 acres before construction began.
Since its inception, Rose Villa has been served by just five executive directors. Vassar Byrd began her tenure as executive director (now CEO) in July of 2006. Vassar emphasized meeting every resident where they are at, teamwork, and a shared goal to position the organization as a leader in senior living. This vision is largely made possible through innovative partnerships with the community, an emphasis on person-centered care in Madrona Grove Supportive Living at Rose Villa, in-home services provided by Avencia Home Care, and a commitment to sustainability for the future.
The story of Rose Villa has been one of expansion over the years as well as the legacy of second- and third-generations of residents calling the community home. The first residents took occupancy in September of 1960 and since then the campus has grown to include 218 independent living homes.
As COVID-19 affects our lives and community in so many ways, Rose Villa IS HIRING. Our staff provide essential support to our residents; that need will not change.
