BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- AegisLiving, a national leader in retirement, assisted living, and memory care communities, is pleased to announce the recent purchase of a property in Bellevue.

Once completed, it will feature expansive common areas and a variety of apartment styles, offering 68 assisted living apartments and 18 Life's Neighborhood(TM) apartments serving those living with memory care issues.
