Our Family Legacy

In 1958 Emmett and Alice Koelsch, our grandparents, pioneered our family’s beginnings in the senior housing industry. It began with their very first nursing home, The Monticello Hall, in Kelso, Washington. Between Emmett and Alice working together, their partnership went on to build the first assisted living community in the Pacific Northwest, Delaware Plaza.

Their legacy has been passed on to their children who own and operate independent living, assisted living and memory care communities across the country.

Third Generation Continues Legacy of Care

Fields Senior Living, founded by Dustin and Melissa Fields, is proud to be the third generation of our family’s long-standing legacy of passionate service to seniors. Dustin brings a hands-on approach of leadership with his experience since 1997 and has learned the business through a broad exposure to every aspect of operation.

Melissa plays an integral part in every aspect of design and her signature touch brings warmth and elegance to all of their communities. “Our family has been serving seniors for the past three generations and we are proud to embrace our founding philosophy to treat each resident with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
