Park Plaza is the premier, independent-living community for Jewish seniors. Our nonprofit mission is to provide senior residents with the modern, elegant accommodations, independence, community, and safety they deserve. Because we are operated by Northwest Home for Aged, a nonprofit 501c3 since 1943, our organization is blessed with a legacy of generous philanthropic giving. We are proud to be able to provide unmatched accommodations and services for our Jewish senior residents.
