Your Life


Welcome to Avamere at Pacific Ridge

Committed to Enhancing Life

Our mission is to enhance the life of every person we serve. At Avamere at Pacific Ridge, we work to meet the needs of seniors with psychiatric conditions, dementia, and other forms of cognitive impairment. Avamere at Pacific Ridge is one of the few skilled nursing facilities in the Pacific Northwest with a focus on behavioral health.

Our success comes in the moments of joy that we bring to our residents every day, and in the relief and comfort that we bring to their families and friends.


Healthcare Services

Avamere at Pacific Ridge establishes a new standard for quality memory care and behavioral health programs while maintaining the look, feel and familiarity of home. The private and shared entry suites are grouped into cozy home-like environments, each with their own comfortable living area. Living rooms encourage social interaction with open, light-filled places for sitting and visiting, reading or simply enjoying the view of the lovely surroundings.

Our supportive and caring staff is the true heart of Avamere at Pacific Ridge. Our care staff, nurses and support team are available to provide personalized services that may include medication management, life enrichment activities, bathing, grooming and dressing assistance, cognitive and behavioral support – all of which can be re-evaluated to meet each resident’s changing needs.

A resident’s care team includes the family members that know and love them. They are a vital part of the success; sharing life stories, providing a familiar face, a reassuring phone call or joining us on one of our many outings.
