1) What are the rooms like?
The facility has many different apartments that vary in size and style. We designed our rooms to be as open and accessible as possible, so that our residents can move freely. We encourage our residents to bring in the furniture and decor they know and love, so that they can decorate their new home to feel just like, well, home. Each apartment has a private bathroom equipped with handicap accessible shower, a call system in each living and bathroom area, individual heating and air conditioning units, kitchenettes with microwave and refrigerator, cable, Wi-Fi, and telephone access.

Here at Chehalis West, we are happy to welcome small pets! Please give us a call for more information regarding moving in with pets.

We proudly boast a restaurant-styled dining room and full menu here. Our kitchen staff is dedicated to bringing deliciously made food to our residents, by crafting our dishes with fresh ingredients, from scratch, daily. We offer a variety of fresh fruit sides, homemade salads, and fresh vegetable salads that vary with season and availability. We cook without adding any salt, and minimal sugars, so that we can adhere to multiple restrictive diets without limiting our residents options.
