A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia can be frightening for families and loved ones. However, with more information and understanding of the condition, plans can be made for the patient to receive care while staying at home. We have offered a variety of Alzheimer’s and memory care services throughout the Greater Portland-Beaverton area, including Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties, since 2006. Serenity Home Care assists individuals and families with dementia by providing in-home memory care services.
