Our Non-Profit Status

Bayview Retirement Community has served the community as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization since 1964.

Bayview was founded in 1961 to care for the elderly residents of Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood and beyond. Early Seattleite Charles A. Kinnear bequeathed his family’s historic property to the First United Methodist Church for the care of older adults or children. The Methodist Church worked with the community to create a ten-story residential facility, which was augmented in 1995 by a Wellness Center, Rehabilitation and Health Center, and Intergenerational Childcare Center. Today, Bayview Retirement Community is an independent not-for-profit organization, managed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. It maintains its affiliation with the Methodist Church, while embracing residents from many different faith traditions.

Philanthropy

Philanthropy Makes a Difference

Bayview residents, their families and seniors in our greater community know peace of mind thanks to philanthropy. Bayview is sharing its knowledge and expertise in areas of healthy, fulfilling, and productive aging, and being a trusted and valuable resource for seniors.

Bayview Retirement Community has served the community as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization since 1964. As a continuing care retirement community, Bayview offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and a Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and is home to more than 210 residents who value independence, friendship, healthy living and quality care. With a goal to help residents remain independent and active as long as possible, a range of services and support are offered to meet the challenges of aging.

Intergenerational Children’s Center

Bayview offers professional day care for working families. Close to 44 children, ages 3 months to five years interact with residents, fostering positive attitudes toward disability and age. The program provides a family-like atmosphere and builds positive relationships among young children and seniors through shared activities.

Economic Diversity

Our commitment to the community could not be stronger. Bayview continues to provide the highest quality of care to seniors in the greater community, and provides over a half a million dollars of underfunded care every year in its Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Each year, over 100 people from outside Bayview are cared for in Skilled Nursing, and Medicare and Medicaid are honored. The Wellness Center, including a therapy pool, offers memberships to seniors living outside Bayview.

Bayview residents who are at or below the HUD median income level occupy 59% of Bayview’s total units. A Moderate Income Program in Independent Living is supported for residents who qualify, and residents who exhaust their financial resources, through no fault of their own, can continue to live with their friends at Bayview.

Community Resource

Bayview’s newest program, The Hub is a community space for neighborhood seniors to experience the benefits of social engagement, support, and advocacy that Bayview provides for its own residents and family members. Seniors have opportunities for educational programs, social interactions, and an overall sense of community to reduce isolation and provide opportunities for healthy aging.
