With over 600 people in attendance at our Grand Opening and Open House events, it was a thrill to cut the ribbon and show off our new Care Center and Bristol View Apartments!  If you were unable to attend our Grand Opening events, we’d love to give you a private tour of our new buildings.

Care Center includes innovative spaces, processes

The Care Center’s first floor will be home to 28 memory care residents. Designed for people experiencing Alzheimer’s and dementia, the memory care center has mostly private suites with full bathrooms.  Long-term skilled nursing residents will live on the Care Center’s second floor in 41 private suites.

Innovations at the Care Center include a new way to dispense medications. Each resident’s medicine will be kept in a locked cabinet in their room. And to encourage communication, the building includes secure outdoor patios and gathering spaces for families and staff to interact.

“The home-like setting at our new Care Center creates a place for people to enjoy life with great activities, wonderful food and interaction with others,” said Michelle Olafson, director of Accommodations and Resident Relations.

“The Campaign for Franke Tobey Jones: Historic past~Innovative future has successfully raised about

$2.5 M from generous donors who support our not-for-profit vision of the new Care Center and want to help make care more accessible to more seniors,” says Judy Dunn, FTJ Interim CEO.  “We are inspired by this outpouring of support from the Tacoma community.”

Bristol View Apartments offer views, spacious living

The new Bristol View Apartments building has 16 residences. Most of the apartments have Puget Sound views while the others have views of the historic Franke Tobey Jones campus and Tudor-style buildings.

Residents can cook in their own gourmet kitchens or socialize with neighbors in the restaurant-style dining area. The apartments’ modern floor plans include a spacious living/dining room with gas fireplace and balcony, master suite with walk-in closet and dual bathroom sinks, all with high-end finishes. Small pets are allowed.

Nearly half of the Bristol View Apartments have been sold.
