Chehalis West Assisted Living, founded by William (Bill) and Ella Hammond, opened its doors in 1985. Bill, having been in the health care industry for a number of years in various capacities, desired to open a care facility that provides personal care services for seniors who need assistance, social support, and a safe environment in which to live. Chehalis West was the first licensed assisted living facility to open in this area. Bill, who now has over 35 years experience in the health care industry, is very involved in the day to day operations of Chehalis West. His passion and dedication for caring for the elderly is clearly seen on any given day as he passes through the halls of Chehalis West chatting with the residents, rarely is he able to get by without being asked for a hug or two along the way. Bill’s own mother, after what was supposed to be just a short stay while Bill was on vacation, decided Chehalis West was the place to call home, and quickly moved in.
At Chehalis West Assisted Living, we are committed to providing a high level of care and services to our residents. Our dedicated and caring staff takes time to listen and communicate to the residents and family; letting them know that they are important and that their voice is heard.
Our building is designed for the safety of the residents in a home-like environment and is staffed with an on-site care team as well as an on-call licensed nurse 24 hours a day. Each apartment has a kitchenette and large private bathroom and was designed with seniors and physically challenged individuals in mind. Our dietary staff is pleased to accommodate special dietary needs. In addition, our activity programs are designed to keep the residents active and social, thus creating a fun and friendly environment, and an inviting place to live.
