Our Philosophy

Person-centered care that is individualized and joyful is our mission. We are focused on maintaining a resident’s strengths and incorporating their life experiences into daily activities. Continuous observation and adaptation promote successful outcomes for residents. We commit to strong communication with you, to guide you through the challenges and progression of this disease.

Welcome Home

Pioneer Place Memory Haven is a locally owned, Christian residential home which provides long-term memory care in a dignified, engaging and comfortable living environment for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory impairment.

Established in 1995, our family-owned and operated dementia care community was one of the first of its kind — purpose-built for dementia care — in Pierce County. Through extensive research and staff training, we’ve built a program that is designed to partner with you to provide compassionate and respectful care through the end of life for your loved one.
