Narrows Glen converts units to assisted living

Narrows Glen, a senior community in Tacoma, has completed renovations of 55 assisted-living units that were previously independent-living apartments.

According to the National Clearinghouse for Long Term Care Information, nearly three in four Americans over the age of 65 will require some form of long-term care during their lives. To address that need as it arises, the renovated apartments at Narrows Glen are tailored to support current and new residents who require assistance with their daily activities, a spokeswoman said.

In addition to independent and assisted-living, Narrows Glen offers  memory care for Alzheimer’s and other dementia.

The community occupies 15 acres whose grounds include flower gardens and a putting green. Other amenities include a Jacuzzi and a fitness center.

Along with Tacoma, areas of Pierce County and the South Sound that are served by Narrows Glen include Fox Island, Gig Harbor, Lakewood and University Place.

Narrows Glen is affiliated with Vintage Senior Living, which is based in San Ramon, Calif. and operates senior-living communities in California and Washington.
