As a family-owned and operated company that has been in the senior care business for over 50-years, we -- better than anyone -- understand the importance of stability and longevity when creating the right culture and caring for you and your loved ones.

You've already met our ownership and leadership teams virtually and in person; but we'd also like to introduce you to a few of our other heroes who have been with us at Bloom at Belfair for almost a decade and since Bloom acquired the community in 2011. They know our culture, our residents, our mission and our routine!

At Bloom at Belfair, we are all about family, our people and warm environment. Our residents and teams have long lasting bonds filled with much laughter and love!
Meet The Team
Meet Our Chief Inspiration Officers, Richard & Ruth Tischler
Richard earned his accounting degree in 1940 and started an accounting practice shortly thereafter. He later entered the field of healthcare. With Ruth’s support, Richard built a chain of Nursing Homes and Mental Health facilities. When Ruth became sick at 89 years old, the close-knit family, including Richard, the Tischlers’ children and their grandchildren, began searching for the perfect senior living residence. As her health condition progressed, she required services ranging from Independent to Assisted Living to Memory Care. Inspired by this personal experience and building upon our family’s values, principles and generations of experience, Bloom was formed to shift the family’s focus to the same lifestyle options that Ruth required. The Tischlers were married for almost 70 years before Ruth passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2012, and Richard was still involved in daily operations until he passed away in 2016 at the age of 101. The Tischlers' story is engrained in Bloom's operation!
