About Hawks Ridge Senior Living

Hawks Ridge is an Assisted Living community that provides exceptional person-centered holistic care to residents.

Located in the heart of Hood River County, our beautiful community features residents from all walks of life. Whether your loved one is moving in from Hood River, The Dalles, Goldendale, or anywhere else, they’ll feel right at home at Hawks Ridge.

We understand requiring Activity of Daily Living (ADL) assistance is trying on a family and their loved one, so we seek to make the experience as comfortable, safe, and enjoyable as possible.

What residents say they love most about Hawks Ridge is our care staff. Our onsite nurses, med techs, and caregivers come into work with a smile on their face every day – and you’d be smitten too if you got to interact with such a wonderful group of residents every day!

Residents at our community love the social life that comes with it. Our Life Enrichment program, SPARK, provides consistent social events that stimulate residents’ minds and facilitate inclusion. And beyond the socialization, our community features a park-like setting. Your loved one will have easy access to walking paths complete with beautiful views of the mountains and surrounding hills.

We believe your loved one’s senior living experience should be enjoyable and purposeful. You’ll learn all about what our community offers and how your loved one fits into the picture during a free tour and consultation. Schedule your visit with a Hawks Ridge representative today to see the community’s magic yourself!

Mind, Body & Soul

Healthy living includes the mind, body, and spirit, and our caregivers work every day to help residents live a healthy lifestyle. 

Our community includes daily exercise classes with other residents so they can stay fit and limber. And when they just want to get the blood flowing, we offer abundant outdoor opportunities for a brisk walk through the lovely surrounding area. 

Additionally, Lifelong Learning – as part of our signature SPARK program – provides residents with a source of continued growth. They may hear from guest speakers, attend small and large group crafts, or engage in painting programs and interactive lectures. These programs are essential for stimulating the mind as well as the body. 

Religion is essential to many of our staff and residents – and we’re happy to welcome all denominations. We offer dedicated space for various services, gatherings, and other interests to review, read, sing, discuss, or otherwise fulfill your desire to seek or pursue a warm and familiar experience.
