We take great pride in the reputation that our team has earned for delivering highly personalized, compassionate Assisted Living and Independent Living services that are designed to meet our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Before residents move to our McMinnville property, customized assessments are completed so individual care plans can be created. These care plans are updated after 30 and 90-day periods and are supervised by our Health Service Director. Our community is staffed by highly trained RNs, LPNs, CNAs, RCCs, and medical technicians who are hired not only for their professional skills but also for their compassionate and warm personalities.
Assisted Living and Independent Living Community in McMinnville, OR
Since its founding in the early 2000s, our community has continued to be well maintained, with many updates and “mini-makeovers” like our new dining room furniture, fireside sitting room, private dining room, lobby, and wine cellar.
Residents enjoy gorgeous living accommodations with bright and inviting apartments that are well lit, maintained, very clean, and have amazing views.
One of the most popular features of our community is the food. We offer a wide variety of entrees and delicacies. A choice of two entrees is offered at every meal, and an alternative menu is always available. Friday is “Fish Friday,” where we serve homemade clam chowder, fish n’ chips, and fish tacos with the Chef’s special mango salsa or chipotle sauce. Not only does our Chef offer international dinners once a month, but we also provide traditional holiday meals along with special occasion dinners on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day BBQs.
Our goal for Vineyard Heights residents and guests is to feel warm, invited, and included. We have a fireside room with a TV, a wonderful library, a wine cellar, and a gorgeous family-style dining room with banquettes in the center and an outdoor patio.

- Based on science and research
- Based on rehabilitation techniques
- Keeps seniors socially engaged in a meaningful way
- Aims at increasing engagement and skills as we age
- Uses proprietary assessment tools that go beyond traditional methods
The effectiveness and success of our SPARK™ program for Assisted Living and Memory Care residents is based on these 4 foundational pillars:
Everyone has a desire to be useful, so we ensure that each resident has a role in the community. Working the front desk or serving neighbors are examples of meaningful tasks that empower and connect residents.
Our Montessori Assessment Tool, created by the Center for Applied Research in Dementia, uncovers remaining skills often missed by traditional assessments. We can than strengthen and build on those identified skills.
Skills can be learned or improved through “procedural learning.” This repetition then allows routine activities to be performed with less need for concerted concentration.
PROGRESSION AND GOAL SETTING
By working on projects or learning topics over a longer period of time, always progressing toward a goal, residents become fully engaged and feel more successful.

When it comes to welcoming a new resident to our community, it’s all hands on deck! That’s why our resident-led Welcoming Committee plays such a pivotal role.
Gardening plays an important role in the lives of many seniors, so we offer an abundance of opportunities to plan, purchase, plant, grow, and harvest. Some meals are even served with fresh produce grown by residents themselves!
Seniors at our community are passionate about food. That’s why we offer the opportunity for residents to support in the way that best suits them, whether it’s setting the table or assisting the Chef with a signature dessert.
"There is no doubt in my mind that it is because of the staff from Vineyard Heights that my dad is still with us, enjoying his new life at his new home."Ken W., Son of Resident
