Our Story

A Home for active Senior Years

Silver Glen has been voted by the readers of the Bellevue Reporter as the “Best Retirement Home in Bellevue  for 2012, 2013 and 2014.” We are the only senior independent living cooperative in Washington state. Cooperative communities are different from other types of senior living. Members realize that they are closely involved in a community that is greater than the sum of its individual parts, and they agree to work together to maintain and improve their lifestyle. We have 15 or more committees  that offer opportunities to use our life experience and skills for the good of the group. If your background is in finance, the arts, gardening, athletic activities, business or social services,  there is a place for you to use your skills here.

We are physically active and want to stay that way!  But, we want to be free from the home maintenance that is no longer fun and consumes our free time. A strange thing occurs here at Silver Glen. It seems that our way of life extends the active years well beyond expectations. We have residents who travel to far-off places, and are totally active at 90 and above. This phenomenon is not due to the "water"...it is our lifestyle.

All of us here at Silver Glen know the feeling.

We live it! We love it!
