    What families are saying
    Island House is a retirement community on Mercer Island that is generally well-regarded for its homely atmosphere, caring staff, and range of activities. The community is praised for its willingness to listen to ideas and suggestions, and for its commitment to creating a positive and happy environment for seniors. The staff are described as pleasant and caring, although some reviews mention that they seem spread too thin. The facility itself has a mix of modern and older areas, with the living room being particularly appreciated. The food is described as okay, but not great, and there seems to be some turnover in the kitchen staff. Residents appreciate the convenience of the location, in the middle of downtown Mercer Island, and the range of apartment sizes and locations within the building. The community offers a range of activities, including exercise classes and weekly outings. However, some reviews mention issues with the delivery of medications, the planning of meals, and the consistency of services such as room cleaning and breakfast delivery. Some reviewers also express frustration with the management, describing them as unresponsive to complaints and slow to return overpaid money. Despite these issues, many residents and their families choose to stay at Island House because of the physical facility and its proximity to their homes.
