Apartment Floor Plans
We have two different sizes of apartments available; studio and one bedroom. Our apartments are among the largest in assisted living in Yakima with our studios measuring 436 square feet and our one bedroom units measuring 630 square feet.
Each of our studio and one-bedroom apartments have a kitchenette complete with a full-size fridge, a walk-in tub and shower combo, and an abundance of storage space. Each apartment is airy and spacious with walk in closets and a personal deck or patio which can be equipped with outdoor furniture or personal plants.
If you are looking for a lifestyle free of household responsibilities, look no further, we have you covered! Allow us to do cooking, cleaning and yard work to ensure your days are carefree. Independent living at The Ponderosa has many amenities that still allow you to feel independent and in control without having to worry about keeping up with household responsibilities.
Assisted living residents receive the same amenities as our independent residents with additional medical services. Specialized care programs and additional services will allow residents to live as independent as possible. We offer 24-hour licensed care and every apartment is equipped with an emergency pull cord. Ponderosa has a great team of caregivers on site 24/7. We also have licensed nurses on site 5 days a week and on call 24 hours/day to offer the extra peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands. Pondersosa care staff is able to provide residents with assistance in basic activities of daily living, such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and medication assistance.
Respite care refers to a short-term stay at a community serving seniors, typically an assisted living facility. Respite care is a great temporary living option for an elderly person who needs some day-to-day supportive services and desires social stimulation, with an opportunity to engage in activities.
At Ponderosa Retirement we offer respite stays with a minimum of one week extending to a maximum of 30 days. Our respite suite is 436 square feet and completely furnished with all the comforts of home. Our Director of Nursing Services will be happy to meet with you and your loved one to determine if our respite program is a good fit.
