We found Clarity Pointe to be the best

We recently moved our mom to Clarity Pointe Tallahasee and are VERY PLEASED with our decision to do so. We looked at 15 facilities across Florida and Montana where mom has family; and found Clarity Pointe to be the best. The facilities are bright and cheery and the large courtyard is very beautiful. You fell like you are in a park. The staff has been fantastic!

Memory care communities offer an ideal solution for providing specialized personal care for loved ones with dementia, as well as peace of mind for families.
