Why Serra Sol

Welcome to Serra Sol.

Serra Sol is a welcoming community where individuals with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia can feel fulfilled, cared for and engaged each and every day. We provide an environment that fully supports the needs of those with memory loss. Residents of Serra Sol will enjoy daily activities and outings, many of which are customized to their specific interests and passions. We feel strongly that those with memory loss can live life to the fullest with our support. 

We know that in order to provide a truly inspired life for residents in our care, it’s about much more than making sure a resident’s health-related needs are met. It’s about the little things that mean a lot. Warmhearted staff who know your loved one’s favorite activities. Comfortable routines that spark positive memories. Opportunities for fun, laughter and joy each day. A community that truly feels like home. 

We select employees who exemplify the values we hold dear: empathy, professionalism, integrity, commitment and compassion. The leadership team at Serra Sol are the gatekeepers of our community culture and are tasked with ensuring that all in our community – residents, employees, resident family members and more – are treated like family.  

What Families Are Saying

For more than 30 years, Agemark Senior Living communities have been helping families affected by Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia get the care and support they need. Here’s what our families have to say.

"I looked at more than a dozen care homes. This was the only place I felt happy about Mom living. Moving Mom from home was so very, very hard but so worth it! The emphasis here is on living life with dignity and as much joy as possible."
Leigh Ann
Daughter of a Resident in Granite Bay, CA
"My wife has been a resident for two years. I have never once regretted trusting her to them. As much as I miss having my wife home I feel relieved that she is being treated with the utmost care."
Husband of a Resident in Lincoln, NE
"My mom has lived in the community for three years. The staff is cheerful and they truly care about mom and my family. They accommodate every need. I trust them with the person who is the most precious to me, my mother!"
Daughter of a Resident in Oakdale, CA
"I made the right choice for my parents and for me! I feel comfortable and at ease knowing that the staff is caring for my folks with fun, helpfulness, compassion, understanding and expertise."

Community Leadership

Each member of our team has been carefully selected. We first seek out individuals that embrace our core values: professionalism, integrity, commitment and compassion.
