While the Island has both traditional and non-traditional health care practitioners, many people choose specialists in Seattle or Tacoma. Family or friends usually provide transportation. ACCESS buses provide door-to-door service for qualified people at a nominal charge. There’s also a bus stop in front of VCC (all Island physician offices are on the bus line or within one block).
We offer respite care options as we know caregivers often need a break. Please call us for more information.
Residents are welcome to have their own cat or dog reside with them as long as they can provide for their pet’s needs and the pet isn’t disruptive to others. A copy of your pet’s current vet records and a $500 non-refundable pet fee is required when you move in. In addition, several certified dogs come to visit residents on a regular basis.
We encourage you to bring in your own furniture and decorate your new home as you’d like. Each apartment is freshly painted prior to renting. If you’d like to use a different color of paint, you are welcome to consult with the executive director about repainting the apartment. When you move out, we request that the apartment be repainted in a color of VCC’s choosing.
VCC has a sidewalk around the outside of the building that provides a safe one-third mile walking loop. People also enjoy walking and visiting in the gardens or feeding the ducks at the pond on the grounds. In addition, there is and All-Ages walking trail (opened in 2019) at the back of the community. Created by Vashon Maury Island Land Trust, the trail accommodates wheelchairs.
