About Neawanna by the Sea

Neawanna by the Sea is an Independent Living & Assisted Living community that provides exceptional person-centered holistic care to residents.

Located in the heart of Clatsop County, our community is nestled near many attractions, including shopping areas, restaurants, and nearby beach access. Whether your loved one is moving in from Cannon beach, Astoria, Portland, or anywhere else, they’ll feel right at home at Neawanna by the Sea.

One of the things residents love about our community is our care staff. We take a vested interest in each new resident, treating them as we would our own family members. Your loved one will be surrounded by staff that comes in every day with a smile on their face because they can help make a difference in their lives.

Residents also enjoy homemade meals in a warm, social environment. When they aren’t eating, they’re enjoying some of our engaging social programs. We host weekly entertainment, monthly town hall meetings, quarterly family events, and seasonal holiday parties.

But most importantly, the right new home for your loved one should look after their wellbeing. Our assisted living staff remains onsite 24/7 to ensure residential safety and health. We’ll arrange any trips to the doctor’s office, coordinate health care plans with partner providers, and provide medication management when necessary.

We believe your loved one’s new home should be both safe and exciting. If you agree, schedule your consultation with a Neawanna by the Sea representative today to see the community’s magic yourself!

As your loved one settles into a routine, their days may include various activities of their choosing which can be conveniently arranged by our Lifestyle Director. Additionally, our Housekeeping and Maintenance teams will keep their apartment in ship-shape every week.

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 have 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.

It is a perfect fit for my parents. We are very satisfied with our experience.
