Our Community

Located in the beautiful Olympia, Capital of Washington. Artesian Place is located just west of the Highway 101/8 and I-5 intersection in west Olympia and within a block of Capital Medical Center services and hospital. Artesian Place has been open and providing care for residents since the late 1990’s. Caring Places Management is honored to carry on the tradition of quality care in a homelike environment that Artesian Place has been known for in the Olympia, Washington area since opening.

Artesian Place is a beautiful 3-story building in the quiet and conveniently located medical district of west side Olympia and the Black Lake area. The building with beautiful finishes and various resident spaces features 60 apartments, 48 large studio and 12 1-bedroom apartments divided amongst three floors, each with access to stairs and elevator. The unique layout and multi-level allows for an intimate feel on each floor, but the benefits of a larger resident population and community. Each apartment hosts their own kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave, and bathroom including roll-in accessible shower. The first floor is home to our dining room and resident kitchen spaces and features bright hallways and a large and zen-like outdoor patio and gardening space off the back of the dining room. Each floor provides residents access to non-pay laundry facilities as desired, bright hallways with resident seating areas throughout, as well as a resident use space unique to each floor; from a resident kitchen and resident mail on the first floor, activity room on the second floor, and library as well as loft with TV and pool table on the third floor.

The team at Artesian Place pride themselves on the quality and caring manner in which they work with the residents and serve the greater community. Our robust activity and life enrichment programming are geared to resident preferences and include Bingo, music and other entertainment performances, scheduled trips to stores and other desired local locations, and wonderful scenic drives and enjoyment of all the area has to offer!

Caring Places Management is proud to be working to provide Medicaid funded services for appropriate residents as possible based on availability and other factors at Artesian Place. Please follow up with the community to discuss status and availability.

Assisted Living
  • Semi-Private Room: $2,960 per month

Additional care rate is factored based on resident needs and direct time spent to assist the resident or complete those tasks based on the care plan developed with the Resident and/or resident representative, community Administrator, and community care team.
