Milestone Retirement Communities Activities Assistant in Vancouver, Washington

To us, a senior living community is so much more than a building. It’s a neighborhood of friends, an extended family, a place that people call home and want to call home for years.

We’ve built a community of caring that helps seniors transition through their retirement years and stay here, at home in The Quarry, regardless of their recommended level of care. By offering six distinct care types including independent living, assisted living, and memory care, our residents are able to comfortably age in place, meaning they won’t have to move to another senior living community if they find themselves needing more or less help.
