Carefree Living in a Homelike Setting at Elmcroft of Chesterley

Our memory care community has been part of the charming city of Yakima since 2002, and our assisted living community has been here since 2004. With our caring, socially rich atmosphere and picturesque location, Elmcroft of Chesterley offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, health, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores. 

We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Rooms are private. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And whether residents want to socialize or enjoy some peace and quiet, our comfortable indoor common areas and outdoor patios and gardens are the perfect place to relax. 

What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Chesterley is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible. 

Respectful, Compassionate Care 

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our compassionate resident care staff, as well as our culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.

When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our assisted living staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like fitness classes, gardening, and picnics and barbecues.

Health and Wellness

Helping our residents stay healthy is part of our mission. We coordinate with their outside healthcare providers and help residents manage medication, wound care and chronic conditions like diabetes.
