SEATTLE, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Áegis Living, a national leader in senior assisted living and memory care, announces its newest community—one infused with Italian hospitality—Áegis at Ravenna in Seattle's Maple Leaf neighborhood.
Inspired by the 19th Century Opera House in Ravenna, Italy, this senior living jewel redefines assisted living with the ambience of an intimate Italian inn and rich palette of the warm Tuscan landscape blended with contemporary Northwest design.
"In our 21 years of bringing distinctive amenities and services to assisted living communities, we are excited by each new opportunity to create a unique and welcoming home for residents," said Dwayne J. Clark, CEO, Áegis Living. "Italians love entertaining, great food, and sharing their table with family, friends and visitors—Áegis of Ravenna is filled with this sense of hospitality and warmth, where every resident and visitor is treated like part of our family."
The spirit of carefree, 'down to earth' Italian hospitality is evident throughout, with a range of cozy spaces for gathering, sharing great food and conversation. The theme carries through with a wine cave, large wood fired pizza oven and even a full-size gondola on a sunny outdoor courtyard, enabling residents to live in a setting evocative of a vacation in Italy.
