Our home is a Washington Licensed adult family home that provides a caring and loving environment for up to six residents. We have five private rooms and one shared room designed for married couples or others that wish to share a room, all featuring easy access to washrooms and handicapped accessible shower. The home is owned and operated by Tracy and Ayda Heims. Ayda, the owner and senior care provider, has over 13 years’ experience working in the adult family home environment as a CNA. She has cared for wonderful, sometimes challenging clients her entire career and is an extremely loving, caring and compassionate individual. She truly is the heart and soul of Crystal Falls.
Whether you are looking for a place for yourself, a friend, a relative or parents, Crystal Falls should be on your short list. Our goal is to keep residents as independent as possible, both cognitively and physically, and we feel that an active, social and lively environment is the best way to meet resident’s care needs. Our park like setting provides ample opportunities for strolls around our 1000 square foot deck, exercise at our fully covered outside workout center, walks along our creek as you enjoy the change of seasons, spectacular and peaceful views of our pond and local ducks as they play in the pond and raise their ducklings, and amazingly relaxing moments with our two crystal falls. Our home is surrounded by nature and provides many opportunities for our residents to connect to all of the wonders that our local environment offers.
INITIALLY WHEN COMING INTO THE HOME
Initial Meeting and Consultation
We invite you to either email or call us to discuss your current situation. We treat all initial calls professionally and with respect. No two situations are identical, and we recognize that. Tracy and Ayda are both expert care managers with over 12 year’s combined experience in the field. They will listen to you, they will evaluate your current needs and goals and will help you determine whether our services are the right fit for you or your loved one. We believe that honesty is the best policy so if we believe that there may be conflicts or issues we will let you know up front, we will discuss the issues that most concern you and provide you with advice about alternatives and resources available. However, if we feel that it is a great fit for everyone then we will arrange for an initial assessment that can take place within as little as 24 hours.
Registered Nurse Assessment
Next, a Registered Nurse conducts a comprehensive physical and emotional health assessment to determine needs, requirements and goals. This assessment provides an initial roadmap to care and life planning. Our goal is to keep you living an active, stimulating and rewarding life! Family members are happily welcomed to visit, outings and daytrips are encouraged and an active life for all of our residents is encouraged.
Our Adult Family Home is licensed for 6 residents.
We accept only Private Pay clients.
We would love to give you a tour of our home and park located just 1 mile from downtown Edmonds, Washington and the Kingston Ferry. Fill out the form on the right and Tracy will contact you soon.
