About Village Concepts

At Village Concepts, we recognize that the true foundation of a home starts with the community of people residing there—living, learning and growing together. This vision is reinforced by the fact that Village Concepts’ managed properties maintain some of the highest overall occupancy rates in the senior housing industry.

Our Story

Steven, Rick, and grandson Stuart have actively managed our operations for over 40 years. When Bill Brown opened his first home for senior citizens, the concept of assisted living as we know it today did not exist. Through trial, error and a great deal of tenacity, Bill forged the new frontier and helped shape the industry as a whole. His early commitment is typical of the Brown family’s hard work ethic and one of the reasons that Village Concepts has weathered the many challenges of the senior care industry for over 50 years.

As one of the oldest and largest providers of assisted living in Washington State, we are dedicated to creating a successful senior living environment where residents can remain active and engaged in their communities. While Village Concepts did not invent assisted living, the Brown family has certainly played a large role in pioneering its creation.
