Long-term care facility closures in Puget Sound area continue, more expected
SEATTLE — At 85-years-old, Char Pruitt figured Foundation House Assisted Living would likely be the last place she’d live when she moved to the north Seattle community eight months ago.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Char said. “It was like being kicked in the stomach.”
A few weeks ago, Char was notified by management that “due to the COVID-19 pandemic” the “extremely difficult decision” was made to close the community.
