Hearthside Manor Memory Care


Our Community

Hearthside Manor in University Place, Washington is a 36-apartment community that provides a comfortable, home-like environment for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and memory loss. Hearthside Manor is located next door to the University Place Fire & Police Stations and across the street from the beautiful new library and various other amenities just off of 37th Street West and Bridgeport Way. Hearthside Manor, although a 36 bed Memory Care community, is uniquely designed into four smaller “houses”, each having 9 apartments and their own dining room. This design allows for care and life enrichment programing best geared towards the Resident and allowing for more small group and individualized interaction than some larger communities. The team at Hearthside Manor provide home-like meals in a family-style dining room environment. The team at Hearthside Manor also strive to provide an active life enrichment program, specialized for our residents with dementia. Various Life Skill Stations throughout the community, as well as small ground and individualized activities, are a tremendous benefit to our Residents. A beautifully landscaped backyard complete with raised flower beds, patio furniture, and smooth cement walkways is always available to our residents.

Hearthside Manor is proud to provide Medicaid funded services for appropriate residents as possible based on availability and other factors.
