Recommending Avamere, Wenatchee

My mother entered Independent Living at Columbia Heights, Wenatchee Bonaventure (before corporate change) in 2010 and 4 years later transitioned to Assisted Living there as well. She lived there for 7 years total before requiring another transition to Memory Care which required a move to a different facility. I will just say that management involvement is the key, and in Wenatchee, they have the key. Nothing is perfect, but as I look back, I am so grateful for the staff, (many of whom are still there), and for the way they cared for my mom.

Avamere Wenatchee

My mom moved into Avamere about 6 weeks ago, she was hesitant about leaving her home. The people at Avamere could not have been more helpful. Her transition has gone as well as we possible could have hoped, and we are very happy with our decision. Avamere Wenatchee used to be Columbia Heights. In talking with locals about residential centers to visit, I was repeatedly warned about poor experiences with Columbia Heights. Avamere is a completely separate corporation, and have all new management and staff. I find that people in Wenatchee still often refer to this site as Columbia Heights, and that the fair to poor reputation of Columbia Heights is unfairly associated with Avamere. I expect that my mom's experience at Avamere is very representative, and that Avamere deserves a much higher rating. Any issues we had during the first few days of mom's move in were quickly handled. The management have a lot of direct involvement with the residents, and the quality of care shows as a result. I would recommend anyone looking for a care facility in Wenatchee to visit Avamere, and don't let the reputation of the previous incarnation color your opinions. Avamere Wenatchee is a quality facility, and my mom is fortunate to be here.
