“Rice Fergus Miller has been honored to be the design partner for eliseo. Our design concept – Harmonious Light and Color – celebrates light and color as it relates to the stained glass of the chapel as well as the rich glass art culture of the region. Glass works are
dynamic and change throughout day; influenced by the quality of light, weather and season, the experience can be unique from one day to the next. This dynamism is also a critical key to quality of life in a retirement community, where residents are engaged daily by new and novel opportunities.”
eliseo, which means “God is my Salvation” in Hebrew, is the largest Life Plan
Community in Pierce County, which offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, and end-of-life care. For more than 85 years, eliseo has been a destination for those seeking to free themselves from the restraints of an ordinary retirement lifestyle. Generations of residents have come here to continue leading extraordinary lives together.
Through the years, they have strived to greet each day with a servant’s heart, to position their residents as their highest priority, and to open their doors to all who wish to walk through them. With these beliefs as the bedrock of their tradition and faith, they have also kept their eyes to the future, recognizing the opportunity for change when it arises. It is their firm belief at this moment Seniors in and around the Puget Sound area deserve a dynamic community that reflects their unique perspective on life “eliseo represents all the limitless possibilities ahead of us, our expansion really began with the addition of our Emerson Wellness and Clark Aquatic Center, followed by our Edwards Plaza, Arneklev Gardens and The Chihuly Family Art Center, and culminating with the expansion of our beautiful campus.” Said Alexandra Vick, Public Relations and Marketing Director at eliseo. “We are excited to welcome additional homes on our campus to continue growing the eliseo vision.”
