Heron’s Key is a senior living retirement community nestled in the Harbor Hill neighborhood above the picturesque town of Gig Harbor, Washington. Our innovative combination of lifestyle, services, and amenities, financial and healthcare security offer value unique to the area. Gig Harbor’s combination of temperate climate, ample rivers and bays, and a beautiful natural setting creates a wonderful place for an active lifestyle. In fact, the United Health Foundation’s senior health rankings report lists the state of Washington third in the country for physically active seniors. As a Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), independent living at Heron’s Key offers an array of top-notch services and amenities. Plus, our resident-first, maintenance-free lifestyle is designed to maximize your freedom while minimizing daily tasks. And with our Life Care plan, you’ll have the assurance of knowing you’ll have unlimited days of assisted living and skilled nursing care at a predictable cost if you ever need it. Heron’s Key in Gig Harbor, Washington is affiliated with Emerald Communities, a Redmond, Washington-based, nonprofit organization. Emerald Communities’ story began in 1979, with the forward-thinking vision of one man, Whitney Corwin. Corwin had become familiar with the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) model, (also known as a Life Plan community) and was impressed with everything they had to offer. Now Emerald Communities brings the innovative Life Care model to Gig Harbor with Heron’s Key. As a true Life Care Community, residents are able to receive higher levels of care, should they ever need it, at a predictable monthly rate. And 75% of your entrance fee is refundable to you or your estate, regardless of your length of residency. To learn the value of living at Heron’s Key, schedule a personal appointment.
