Alfredo is Great

[name removed], the director of enviromental services, does a great job. My heating and cooling cover fell off and he fixed it right. I was outside taking care of my car using water bottles. He was washing windows right where i was and gave it a quick rinse. He always does a great job.

Great Assisted Living for mother

We moved our mother from another assisted living facility to Avamere of Wenatchee. She is so happy! She is delighted with the food especially! She says the people seem happier so she is happier!! She also was pleased with the first haircut she got. That is something that is important to her.

Review of Avamere At Wenatchee

Appreciate shower aides' says help. Food is surprisingly good and on time. Looking forward to hairdresser and bus service. Building is clean inside and out. Our housekeeping is excellent. Staff is friendly and cheerful and responds to me when I press pendant for help. Building is large enough to get walking exercise year-round.

Is always willing to help in any way needed, including management. I've done a great job in working with the covid-19 pandemic. Communication could be better with updates pertaining to residents. I am very happy here, this is where I should be at this time in my life. Always willing to answer my questions. Residents are friendly.

My mother enjoys all of the caregivers. The office staff is friendly. The food is good. Unfortunately, it almost always arrives cold to the room. The facility is kept up nice. It would be nice if they could hire more staff. We have recommended Avamere to friends.

Review of Avamere At Wenatchee

I toured three other facilities in my area for my mother and Avamere just felt right. [name removed] gave a wonderful tour and was very informative and you could really tell she loves her job. Now that my mom is living there, it has been challenging moving her and because of covid-19 but I know she has been well taken care of. Thanks to [name removed] and her staff I know her needs are being met and they all bend over backwards to make her feel safe, secure and well-loved. The facility is as gorgeous as her apartment. The place is really setting the bar hiigh!

Review of Avamere At Wenatchee

My dad has been at Avamere for about 7 years, the last five or so, on the Assisted Living side. The staff does a great job of keeping the residents safe and needs met. Quite challenging for us with Covid, but we all do our best and Dad tells us they take good care of him, e.g. meds, insulin, minor injuries and laundry. We have so appreciated the facility getting in iPad to zoom with Dad!!

Review of Avamere At Wenatchee

My brother [name removed] recently moved into the independent living section of the facility. starting with the move, orchestrated by [name removed], we are very impressed with the professionalism and going the extra mile during our move. We realized during this time of the panda make your staff is under tremendous challenge and are required to carry out many duties there are not required to do. Many of your staff have been courteous and yet trying to keep everyone safe at the same time. We really appreciate their positive attitude and caring of the residents.

Review of Avamere At Wenatchee

My father has been a resident for 5 years, and I have had quite a few visit to the facility. My interactions with the residents and staff has always been friendly and helpful. Avamere at Wenatchee has taken great care of my father. Whenever questions come up, the staff is very prompt with returning calls. The facility is very clean and the grounds are kept up nicely. Prior to pandemic, there were a lot of activities for the residents. During this covid-19, we appreciate the efforts to keep residents safe and family is informed. Wonderful Community. Shout out to [name removed] for going above and beyond with helping not only my husband and I, but the time she takes to interact with my father.

My dad moved in a month and a half ago. Prior to arriving, the staff worked tirelessly to help us with paperwork and then moving in. Since being here my dad's health and attitude have improved. He is happy. I'm happy because I know he's safe and being taken care of.

Kind, caring staff, understanding leadership and an attentive chef make this place great. If there is a problem, it is quickly remedied once the right person is notified. Power through the sometimes awkward first weeks and the living gets easier.

Avamere helping transition Mom to her new life

Transitions can be so hard, and it was especially so for my Mother who recently lost her husband of 72+ years, and moved to Avamere from the family properties where she had lived her entire life. (91 years) Fortunately, the crew, staff, and other residents at Avamere were very warm and welcoming and continue to be so as Mom makes the hardest adjustment of her life. I was also welcomed to stay in her apartment for a few days and was able to partake of some of the activities, the dinner meals, and the amenities at Avamere. This also helped with her transition. Some amenities that she utilizes include exercise classes, walking the compound, church services, a beauty salon, the library, the little store, and many musical performances, all on site. The front desk staff is also very responsive to her needs, safety, and well being. Overall, I give very high marks to Avamere.

Review of Avamere

My mother-in-law, who is approaching 100 years old, has lived at Avamere for almost 5 years. The first 4 1/2 years she lived in the independent living side of the facility, until she fell, which necessitated moving her to the assisted living side of the facility. The Community Relations Director was a tremendous help during this stressful time. She made sure everything ran smoothly & with as few complications as possible. Avamere is very well run & all of the employees from the Executive Director down to maintenance are professional, personable & they always let you know they are there to help you. The facility is kept in pristine condition & very clean. We are very fortunate we found Avamere & would recommend it to anyone looking for a facility to place his or her elderly parents.

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.
