A Day in the Life at Era Living, Part 1

Marla Becker joins Suzanne to talk about Era Living, which has eight senior communities in the Seattle, King County area. Marla is Executive Director of the Aljoya Mercer Island community, located off the I-90 corridor with a beautiful walking garden area, a really comfortable space. It features independent living and assisted living.


Marla talks about what to expect when you move in. Only the stress is removed when you move in — there’s so much to take part in, to do as much or as little as you’d like. Seniors want to be able to do things with their lives, enjoy the things on their bucket list, and not worry about buying groceries, cleaning gutters or mowing their yard. Here they can make connections that help people thrive. It’s a great opportunity for seniors.

A resident ambassador group welcomes new people who move in, sharing experiences with them to make the transition much easier. Having everything taken care of gives them more time and independence to explore things they wouldn’t have tried before, such as art. Residents here have a thirst for life, joy, and activity.


Aljoya Mercer Island has 114 apartments ranging from 700 to 2,000 square feet. Learn all about Era Living at Answers for Elders or at their website.
