Community Features: Designed with Your Comfort in Mind

We strive to maintain an inviting, compassionate, caring nursing home for seniors. We want you to be at ease while you are under our care. We know that rehabilitating from a recent surgery, illness, or other life-altering experience can be difficult. Our care staff, activities coordinators, on-site chefs, and everyone else involved with your care take a holistic approach to getting you back to the living arrangement you seek.

Front of Building

Beyond the care we provide, our building is designed to reflect the commitment we have to enhancing the life of each person we serve. From the robust amenities we have to offer to the general layout of the grounds – there is something for each of our guests; whether it’s the desire to find a cozy corner to read a book, or enjoy great conversation over a freshly prepared meal of your choosing.

Here are just a few examples of what you can find under our roof:


The peace and comfort nature can provide is a positive benefit to the rehabilitation process. At Avamere St. Francis of Bellingham, we fully embrace this by maintaining a fully enclosed courtyard with paved perimeter walkways that are surrounded by beautiful natural vegetation. These gardens have been planted and maintained over the years by residents.

We hold a number of therapeutic activities in the courtyard, such as live music and meals prepared with locally-sourced food during the warmer summer months. Thanks to the hard work and philanthropy of the local Boy Scouts, we also have a beautiful patio area in our front lawn, landscaped with native plants offering a lovely sanctuary for quiet visits.

Commons Area

We have two separate living rooms, one located on each wing. Each living room contains a TV with a DVD player and Comcast Cable Services as well as resident computers and independent activity supplies.

Our Living Rooms are multifunctional spaces that serve as independent as well as scheduled group recreation activity spaces or informal meeting locations. For your convenience, each living room and all patient areas are Wi-Fi ready. In addition to our living rooms, St. Francis also has a small library with a varied collection of special interest, large font, hardback and paperback novels, and magazines. The library also has a resident computer, a TV, Wi-Fi capabilities and is often reserved for private family gatherings.
