Ongoing Programs

Education and Community Events may include fall prevention classes, fire/emergency safety presentations, parties, games, and music. Coffee is served Tuesday-Friday mornings in The Penthouse. Some bring their crafts projects and enjoy conversations on every topic under the sun. The Brighton Crafters meet weekly, and enjoy outings together. The Brighton Penthouse may be used by resident-led groups with special interests, such as the weekly Bible study and prayer vigils.

P-Patch Gardens Sign up in March for one of our 24 raised beds in our beautiful P-Patch garden. Last year's gardeners get first pick, but there are always enough plots to go around, and it's a lovely place to visit. Volunteers are welcome to come one time, or once a week, to assist our senior and disabled gardeners.

The Brighton Walking Path The .5 mile walking path winds around our building and gardens, and provides a safe place for fresh air and exercise away from traffic. Take a sun break on a bench, then visit the P-Patch.

Transportation The Hyde Shuttle, a free service provided by Senior Services, is available for pre-arranged visits to neighborhood stores, medical appointments and other services. The #7 Metro bus makes frequent stops on the corner of our block for easy trips to libraries, banks, shopping, cinema, cafes and parks. And for those who drive, we have plenty of free parking.

Field Trips The Hyde Shuttle provides free transportation to destinations of our choice. Visits to the Northwest African American Museum, and to the Wing Luke Museum in the International District via the Shuttle were big hits. Trips to the Aquarium, Woodland Park Zoo, The Frye Museum and more are coming up. We also enjoy lunch with tours of other senior facilities.

The Sunshine Club The Sunshine Club recognizes resident birthdays, move-in anniversaries, and other good news, and sends cards to residents experiencing hospitalization, bereavement, or other life changes. New residents are welcomed by the Resident Manager and Resident Outreach Coordinator. They can answer questions about the building and neighborhood, and encourage new residents to feel at home.
