Thank you dedicated staff for your hard work, caring, and perseverance.
Thank you residents’ friends and families for your understanding and cooperation with our COVID prevention measures. As is the new normal, please call before visiting Somerset.
Since the situation can change, calling us before visiting is the best way to keep your senior friends and relatives safe, as well as the rest of our seniors and staff. So far our prevention measures are working. No one at Somerset has COVID.
If we continue our careful policy regarding no visitors (except for special circumstances with mask and temperature check) we hope to continue having healthy residents and staff. By being careful, we’ll all get through this.
Thank you to everyone – Somerset Administrators Mariisa Bond Jimenez and Eric Rosgen.

Ginny, one of our New Westside Terrace (NWT) nurses, has been sewing masks and making cloth sanitizing wipes for NWT and Somerset Retirement Homes and Assisted Living.
Thank you Ginny for your dedication and love. These things are worth more than money can buy.
Note: Cloth sanitizing wipes (including rags, wash cloths, etc) can be made by adding Lysol or any other disinfectant. Liquid bottles of Lysol are affordably available at most grocery stores. They are intended to be refills for Lysol pump spray bottles. When added to a paper towel or cotton cloth, they make great disinfecting wipes out of readily available and affordable materials. We prefer cotton because it’s washable and reusable. If paper toweling shortages occur, we’ll be less affected. Wash and dry resuable cotton wipes on hottest cycle! It’s also good idea to add a little bleach to wash cycle for extra disinfecting.
New Westside Terrace Retirement Home and Assisted Living in Longview WA, and Somerset Retirement Home and Assisted Living in Longview WA are owned by the Bond family.
We care about our staff and seniors and are taking precautions for COVID prevention. So far so good. No one has it at either facility and we want to keep it that way. Please call before stopping by so we can discuss our prevention measures with you. Your cooperation is a big part of prevention.
At the same time, we’re working hard to keep our seniors happy and entertained with senior activities, projects, and live music entertainment.
Musicians regularly give concerts from parking lot in front, and from backyard while residents enjoy from their open windows.
