Memorials

Rarely is our mental, physical, and spiritual strength so tested as when we experience the loss of a loved one. At Serenity, our commitment to live one’s journey is embedded not only in our mission, but in everyday encounters.

Our Memorial Fund is dedicated to meeting the needs of those living at Serenity Assisted Living, Inc. Since Serenity’s inception in May of 2006, the administration continues to seek ways to support individuals to live their lives to the fullest throughout the aging process. Today’s health-care environment and increasing cost of living make it more and more difficult to provide the extra special touches to support the needs of the diverse community of senior adults and those with disabilities. We invite you to partner with us so we might continue to provide the types of care that go beyond what is required to enrich and bless the lives of those we care for. Honor your loved one by considering a gift to the Serenity Memorial Fund.

The Serenity Memorial Fund appreciates donations from individuals, private businesses, publicly-held corporations and other philanthropic agencies, as well as granting agencies. Memorials help us remember the life of a loved one after their passing; they may have spent their last days on earth at Serenity. They come to be loved and cherished by those who care for them and those who live as their neighbors and friends at Serenity.

DOROTHY MINNIS SEASONAL ROOM

With the help of the Minnis family and friends, Serenity added the Dorothy Minnis Seasonal Room at the East Campus. An entire space of amenities, such as a big-screen television with surround sound, a cozy fireplace, and wall-to-wall windows of natural light was made possible with generous donations. Our ladies and gentlemen use the space for card games, intimate meals with family and friends, exercise and watching the big Sunday football game.
