Hood River Care Center
Hood River Care Center is located in a residential neighborhood nestled among the pear and apple orchards overlooking the beautiful Hood River Valley. Our staff believes that every resident is an individual and we take great care to communicate and learn the activities that add comfort to their day.
With that goal in mind, we provide quality health care programs that promote rehabilitation of the whole person -- physically and emotionally always striving for quality through deliberate and constant improvement of services.
In addition to the many amenities, Hood River Care Center offers Prestige's award-winning Expressions Memory Care Program, designed to make our residents feel accepted, important, comfortable at home. Expressions creates a buffer against fear and the stress of dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment through activities that stimulate the body and mind, and enrich the life of our residents.
