    Linda's Home With A Heart Adult Family Home is owned and operated by an L.P.N. Linda, herself, has 22 years experience as an L.P.N. in geriatric care and prior 3 years experience as a caregiver in a long-term care facility. This totals more than 25 years as a dedicated caregiver. Linda lives in the AFH, in her private living area. Linda's current AFH was custom built in 2000 and Licensed by the State of Washington in 2001, for an AFH. Linda's AFH has been licensed since 1997, as we relocated to our new home in 2001. Linda has been an AFH Provider for over 10 years. Our custom built home has been designed to include 4-foot wide hallways, a huge handicapped bathroom and two additional half bathrooms. There are 4 private bedrooms and one shared bedroom. All bedroom doorways are extra wide also, 3-foot wide. The interior is kept clean and clutter free. The windows are extra large to let the sun shine in. This is a huge rambler style home, No stairs, but has a 25-foot wheel chair ramp to the entrance with handrails. Linda's has well maintained and beautiful outdoor areas, a 100-foot floral garden in front of the home and a 38-foot slightly raised vegetable garden on the south side of our home. A peaceful and bird and squirrel habitat area in the back yard. Linda, herself, also specializes in feeding and maintaining Hummingbirds year round in our yard. Our back yard has a huge deck with railings, 32-foot by 32-foot, which is attached to the home and can be viewed and accessed from our kitchen eating area. The deck is provided with outdoor furniture and many flowers during the growing season, along with the Hummingbirds up close all year round. There are no visible neighbors from the back yard, as this is a slightly wooded and brush area which allows for wonderful peace and privacy. Across the street from our private driveway is Dawson Park, a nice city park that has a walking path, picnic tables, a few BBQ grills, children’s play equipment, and a playing field for sports. Linda's Home with a Heart provides a quiet and peaceful living environment inside and outside.
