About Chandler House
Chandler House Alzheimer’s and Related Dementia Care was established in 1998 by a family-owned company and remains family-owned today. It was designed to look and feel like a home with all private rooms. Our exceptional level of care was unmatched in 1998 and remains unmatched today.
When it was established, Chandler House provided a real new direction in Yakima for the care of residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. First and foremost, it was the first facility solely dedicated to supporting residents and family members with this specific set of needs. Secondly, it was designed to look and feel very much like a home. The importance of reassuring sounds, scents and activities is elevated in the care of persons with memory loss.
All meals are home cooked and enjoyed in a more traditional, interactive family style setting, which stimulates connections and appetites. Rooms are decorated to be as home-like as possible. Chandler House has a full time Life Enrichment Coordinator who works to provide each resident with activities that reflect those that they enjoyed throughout their life- music, gardening, movies, games, etc.
