RHF was founded in 1961 by two United Church of Christ clergy and a layman with a vision of providing quality housing and services for seniors. Today we are proud to offer the following services in 29 states:
Retirement can be the most exciting time of your life! Our Residential Retirement communities offer a variety of activities and accommodations to suit your lifestyle.
Assisted Living is a level of care, licensed by the state, that provides residents with assistance with various daily activities.
Skilled nursing is needed when you or your loved one requires a licensed nurse to manage, observe, or evaluate your care. Our nurses are compassionate and well-trained, and they truly care about each resident.
Memory loss affects about ten percent of people over the age of 65. Our memory loss programs are staffed with personnel who are trained in the care of residents with memory impairment. This care is provided in a friendly and safe environment.
Our Respite Care Program is designed for individuals who, temporarily, need a watchful and caring environment because their home caregiver is temporarily unable or unavailable. We provide the care and attention needed while the caregiver is away.
Affordable Assisted Living
The unique combination of Assisted Living and Affordable Housing can only be found at one RHF community Park Place in Seattle, Washington. At Park Place, the City of Seattle and Retirement Housing Foundation has teamed together to offer an assisted living environment at an affordable price for lower income older adults.
