Is a Memory Care Community the right choice?

This specialized community, The Hampton and Ashley Inn is near medical facilities (Molina Healthcare of Washington and other medical professionals) equipped to serve the specific needs of older adults experiencing Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and other forms of memory loss.

At The Hampton and Ashley Inn,

we explore beautiful Vancouver, Washington for exciting things to do and see. We might have breakfast at Valerie’s on a Monday to enjoy a stack of pancakes or drop into Reliques Marketplace to treasure hunt every other Thursday. There is always something fun to see at OMSI, just a short distance from The Hampton Ashley Inn.
