Our Story

Making senior living better, together.

Is home a place, or a feeling? At Village Green, we think it’s both. At its best, home is comfort, security, family, community, joy, and so much more. It is a sanctuary that still gives us room to grow. However we define it, what we call home changes all the time, from small things we hardly notice to major life transitions. Expected or not, change can be a little scary, but what would life be without it?

As more people are staying active and starting a whole new chapter after retirement, senior living shouldn’t be just a destination, but a door to exciting possibilities. More than amenities or floor plans or menus, it’s about people, and the energy they create when they feel a sense of connection, belonging, and purpose.

Village Green is a local, family-owned company of servant leaders whose purpose is to support the emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being of the people who trust us to be there for them. We’re dedicated to embracing change with optimism and transparency, always present and engaged in the daily life of our communities with the well-being of our resident family at the center.

After three generations in local construction, the Powell Family realized there was a lack of services, community, and opportunity available to local seniors. They felt a need to build something more. That something more turned out to be a community of warm, welcoming residences for older people seeking a safe, convenient, vibrant place to call home.

Village Green West Seattle, originally known as Daystar Retirement Village, pioneered independent and assisted senior living as we know them today. Founded by the Powell family, it was based upon a genuine desire to understand what people need most as they age and to find a better way to deliver it. This is a principle that guides us today, even if it means doing something that hasn’t been done before.

You can see the impact of our philosophy all around: homes that are spacious and inviting; buildings designed for quality living; the lovingly nurtured natural landscapes that embrace and inspire our communities. Most importantly, you see it on the faces of residents and staff who know they are loved and appreciated.

With an inquisitive spirit and caring hearts, we keep growing, not in size, but in the value and satisfaction we bring to our residents. We are always looking for ways to improve our services, activities, nutrition, and safety, but these are not company decisions; they’re family decisions. In everything we do, we strive to create the home-like environment each person needs to thrive.

Keeping our values of Optimism, Trust, Collaboration, and Dedication at the top of our minds is how we consistently deliver a quality resident-centered experience.

We demonstrate our commitment to those we serve by:

  1. Embracing change with creative solutions that enrich people’s lives.
  2. Cultivating a community of fairness and belonging where friendships blossom.
  3. Working together to understand and meet the needs of each resident and family.
