|This senior care home near RJH is remodeled and open for business|
The home is owned and operated by Dave Saint (CNA) a 30-year Redmond resident living on Union Hill. Dave's sister is a nurse and brother-in-law an oncologist at Overlake.

Christian says, "the daily cost for home care (not counting meds.) is $150/day vs. $300/day in an institutional nursing home. Smaller senior homes are more accountable and personal." Award-winning Seattle Times coverage of nursing homes addressed terrible abuses by institutional providers. Residential senior homes like this offer the neighborhood ambiance of a lawn mow, passing school children and ping of a bat.
If you have a neighbor or know a family that needs the support from this senior home, Christian recommended you call him directly at 206-551-5450. He lives in a family of nurses and knows every nook and cranny of the business. Or, call Simona Saint at 206-250-1100. Better yet? just knock on their door.
