The Quarry, Vancouver WA
When it comes to senior living, few communities offer as many care services, wellness programs, and amenities as the Quarry in Vancouver, WA. Unlike many communities that stop with assisted living and Alzheimer's care, the Quarry offers six long-term care programs for people who need mild to advanced personal care. The community’s six long-term care programs include:
- Assisted living
- Independent living
- Terrace PLUS
- Alzheimer's care and dementia care
- Parkinson’s care
- Enhanced Care
Terrace PLUS and independent living offer light care services for people who are largely independent but need assistance with some of their daily activities. Like assisted living residents, Terrace PLUS and independent living offer the following services as part of their monthly rental fees:
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Medication management
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Laundry and linen services
The Enhanced Care program offers the same personal care services as assisted living with a higher staff-to-resident ratio. The staff may help enhanced care residents with meal planning, dietary monitoring, pet care, extended housekeeping, and laundry services, and may serve as a personal escort to and from the community’s dining room and social activities.
Regardless of a person’s care program, all residents are welcome to the community’s various wellness programs and social events. The Quarry offers an ever-changing event schedule to encourage social interaction and creative expression among residents, which may include activities like:
- Arts and crafts sessions
- Game and movie nights
- Fitness classes
- Group outings
- Guest speakers and lectures
In addition to their social events, the Quarry’s in-house amenities are a popular attraction for many incoming residents. They are one of the only assisted living or independent living communities in Vancouver that offers an indoor, heated saltwater pool and a full-service day spa. Residents can take laps in the pool or get a massage without ever going far from home. In addition, the community has an on-site movie theater, a lounge, and a salon giving residents plenty of fun activities to choose during their stay.
When residents are not enjoying the community’s exceptional amenities and features, they can relax in their spacious, tastefully decorated apartment. The Quarry offers studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom layouts for people to choose from. The studio apartments are an affordable alternative to larger floor plans, offering manageable square footage at a reasonable price. However, many older adults prefer the one or two-bedroom apartments for their added space and additional privacy.
Regardless of a person’s floor plan, each of the Quarry’s apartment homes includes:
- Individually controlled air conditioning and heating
- Large windows offering spectacular views of Vancouver
- Emergency call systems (enabling around-the-clock care)
- Cable television

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if the Quarry is right for me?
The Quarry offers a wide variety of services for people who need mild to advanced assistance with their daily activities. Their staff assist older adults with showering, dressing, and eating among other day-to-day tasks. However, the community is not equipped to provide certain types of senior care and may not be a suitable choice for some people, depending on their health conditions and care needs.
To find out if the Quarry is a suitable choice for senior care, prospective residents can ask themselves the following questions:
- Is the person ambulatory?
- Does the person need ongoing medical attention
- Does the person have memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia?
- Does the person have Parkinson’s disease?
- Does the person need rehabilitation?
Although the Quarry offers a long list of services, they are not licensed to provide skilled nursing care. If a person is permanently confined to their bed or they require ongoing medical attention to treat chronic illness or injury, the Quarry may not be a viable option for their care due to the community’s licensing and limitations.
However, people living with memory impairments, Alzheimer's and dementia are welcome at the Quarry. Their memory care community offers specialized treatments for people with memory loss, creating a safe and secure environment for them to thrive. The same can be said for people with Parkinson’s disease: the Quarry’s Parkinson’s program is unique and offers ideal care for people living with the disease.

Q: How do I know if the Quarry’s memory care program is right for me or my loved one?
Living with Alzheimer's disease or memory loss can be challenging. When people develop dementia, they have to adjust to a new way of living with an unfamiliar set of hurdles. The Quarry’s memory care community aims to make each person’s dementia journey easier, offering individualized care for each resident according to their needs.
Each Alzheimer's care resident’s individualized care plan includes structured activities to stimulate their mind and memory. The staff work one-on-one with each person to deliver the most effective memory care services according to their needs. Many of the community’s memory care services are similar to assisted living, like medication management and assistance with daily activities. Ultimately, the memory care services a person receives depends on how the severity of their Alzheimer’s or dementia and their biggest challenges.

Yes! Alongside the Quarry’s long-term care programs they offer temporary respite care for up to 30 consecutive days.

Short-term residents are welcome to the same events and community amenities as assisted living residents and stay in the same spacious units.

Q: How much does the Quarry cost per month?
Each person’s base monthly rental fee includes their room and board, cable, around-the-clock care availability, meals, and housekeeping. As people need additional care, the community charges them accordingly. There is no “one-size-fits-all” cost estimate for Quarry residents, as each person’s total monthly fees are the sum of their floor plan and their individualized care routine.

From The Owner
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. If you or someone you love is considering a move to The Quarry, be sure to browse through our photo gallery to see firsthand why so many Vancouver seniors are proud to call us home. Keep Reading
