What about Harmony Guest Home Residential Care Community that separates us from other residential care facilities out there? Harmony have a reputable name in providing excellent care to our senior population in the Hillsboro area for over 40 years, licensed by the Department of Human Services for seniors with Dementia, Alzheimer’s and/ or with disabilities.
We provide two programs in our residential care community. Our right wing is Open Unit serving 42 residents with open access. On our open community, residents are provided with care and supervision. On our open side, residents enjoy the freedom of an independent living with having someone nearby to help. Our left wing is a Memory Care Locked Unit with specialized care for up to 20 residents with dementia or other related conditions. Our Memory Care community has specialized care for residents that require more than assisted living with their day-to-day needs which includes medication and behavioral management.
A pre-placement evaluation is required before admission to either unit. In order for us to provide the highest quality of care, we encourage family and responsible parties to provide us with comprehensive information regarding the resident.
