Fern Gardens Joins the Avamere Family of Companies

“We are very excited for this opportunity for residents of Fern Gardens to benefit from Avamere’s experience, expertise and passion for caring for older adults,” says Nicolette Merino, vice president of operations for Avamere. “Our mission is to enhance the life of every person we serve. What that means for the seniors at Ferns Garden is honoring their past while respecting and working toward their comfort in the present.”

Avamere Health Services, a leading senior living and health care company based in Wilsonville, OR, currently operates 50 post-acute care and senior living facilities and four ancillary healthcare companies and their subsidiaries across 15 states. For over 25 years, Avamere has helped seniors with memory issues, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, and their families achieve comfort through personalized care plans that preserve personal dignity while promoting health, friendship and trust.

According to Merino, the partnership between the organizations will enhance an already strong local support presence for local seniors. “Avamere’s management services are recognized for reinvigorating assisted living communities, skilled nursing facilities, and memory care buildings to turn them into market leaders while residents receive the benefits of Avamere’s continuum of care. Our unique brand of health care management services work toward higher operational efficiencies while focusing on quality outcomes for residents.”
