About Us

Serenity Pines Personal Care Home is family owned and operated, providing person centered care to people who are no longer able to reside in their own homes, but are not in need of skilled nursing services. Serenity Pines offers quality services to those who are unable to live independently or choose to live in a community based residential setting with a family environment. We are a certified Veterans Administration community home and are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare.


The mission of Serenity Pines Personal Care Home is to ensure the safety, comfort, dignity, and health of our residents in a serene living environment while valuing community, encouraging independence, and respecting each resident as an individual.
