There are plenty of things to do around our local area, such as visiting the International Rose Test Garden, Portland Japanese Garden, Clackamas Town Center, Washington Park, Pittock Mansion, Forest Park, the Portland Art Museum, or the Hoyt Arboretum.

Whether your loved one requires some help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) or is living with the effects of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, our dedicated staff takes great pride in delivering high-quality care that is compassionate, safe, and resident-centered. Our services are designed to meet our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We offer enriching activities, exciting social programs, wellness classes, restaurant-quality meals, and more.

Before residents move to our community, customized assessments are completed so individual care plans can be created. These care plans are updated regularly and as needed. Our community is staffed by highly trained medical professionals such as an RN, RCC, and ED, who are hired not only for their professional skills but also for their compassionate and warm personalities.
