Our dedicated live-in community managers work hard to ensure that each and every senior feels right at home from the minute they step through our doors. This is what we call The Holiday Touch, and it is what makes life at our Oregon communities so special.
I enjoy Madrona Hills. The apartment I have is a nice one-bedroom apartment. It isn’t what I was used to, but no apartment is going to be as large as my house. I enjoy the little get-togethers, chats, and the games that we play. I haven’t been able to take many of them in yet because I am still recovering from knee surgery, but the ones I have been able to do, I have really enjoyed. The dining room is very nice and very clean. The food is good. I like being able to cook my own if I want to, and that’s the only thing I can’t do here. I can’t cook a meal for myself as there isn't a kitchen in my apartment.
Sheldon Oaks was beautiful and my mother's favorite place. They were creative and had dancing, pinochle, and exercise classes. The best thing about that place is it was close. The people could walk to the bank and a nearby grocery store. They showed us the laundry room, where you could do your own laundry. They had vans that would take you anywhere you wanted to go at anytime. The staff was very accommodating. The food wasn't that great, though.
It's more like a home here at Sheldon Oaks. The only thing I would correct in this place is they should have the food served all day long. We have three feedings and an hour and a half to get down there, get our food, and get back. But other than that, it's homey, they take care of problems, they treat me really well, everybody is really friendly, and I enjoy it here. The managers are always there to take care of you and help you. It's very comforting.
I thought Sheldon Oaks was beautiful, but they did not take Medicaid, which was why I did not end up there. The staff that toured me around was wonderful, very thorough, and nice. They did not rush us. I had lunch there, and it was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and served and presented nicely.
Madrona Hills is a wonderful, secluded place with beautiful carpeting and great views. I only met one person, and he was quite kind with me and worked with me quite well. The dining room was very beautiful with independent tables and restaurant-style service. They had a very large exercise area, weights, stair climbers and all kinds of exercise equipment, plus they have a schedule that they put out every day with at least five or six activities going on around the property. It was a wonderful location and a beautiful property.
I’ve been to Gresham Manor, but I have a little dog and what they had available was on the third floor. I didn’t want to live on the third floor with my dog, so I counted that out. It was a very nice place with very nice people and very well-trained staff. I listened to the residents who had said they have all kinds of things to do, like trips to go shopping. I liked the place.
Sheldon Oaks was really nice, but as my wife put it, she said that it felt like we were in a production. Everything was so organized and laid out that it didn’t feel very relaxing. It was a very beautiful facility, but all they could offer me was a studio. They had an exercise room, pool table, and walking area, and showed me some scheduling of different activities that the people could do. They had a beautiful facility and good food. They not only provided food, but inbetween meals, they had a lot of snacks and juices always available for the residents. The community was very clean and very neat, but it just didn’t feel very relaxing. It felt like everything was too organized.
We have lived in the area for over 30 years and remember when they were building the community at Hidden Lakes. We had always wants to stop by and see the facility. We were suprised by how large the property is and they indeed have a lake hidden behind the building. The community setting is beautiful.
As we walked into the community we were greated by a very nice receptionist named Lysa. After asking how she could help us she offered us coffee and water and then went to get the salesperson.
As we were waiting the manager Tony and his wife came out and introduced themselve. They both were really pleasent and also offered to get us something to drink.
After a couple of minutes the salesperson John came and met with us. He was very friendly and made us both feel welcome. We sat in a one bedroom apartment and talked for a few minutes and then showed us around. The areas around the community are beautiful and everyone we ran into was very friendly. Most everyone stopped and introduced themselves.
We saw two different apartment options. First, we saw a two bedroom, two bathroom home with a great view of the lake. The apartment had a nice private patio with a nice view too. We really liked that each home had it's own garage. The area felt like it's own little neighborhood. John also showed us a two bedroom apartment in the main building. It was smaller than the outside apartment, but it too was very nice. The apartment inside had a very large patio with a lot of windows.
We also enjoyed the dining room in the main building. We missed lunch, but John invited us to come back and try a meal there. We will definately take him up on his offer.
Overall the property is the best we have seen. The staff was very friendly and the people who live there all seemed very happy. Folks seemed to be active, which is important to us. On a scale of 1 to 10 we give it a 9. I would recommend anyone looking for a retirement community to visit.
We came in and toured the community with my parents. From the moment we walked into the community we were greeted by the staff and residents who seemed quite happy and friendly. The sales staff was very knowledgable and helpful to my parents and they answered our questions as well. We spoke with several residents who had recently moved into Hidden Lakes and they told us that it was the best decision they had made. They were really struggling about moving into a retirement community because they thought that they were giving up things but they were happy to make the move.
Mom and dad were glad to hear those things. The view from the dining room of the lake was very appealing to us and our parents.
We hope to help them move in as soon as they come back from traveling in the next month
My mom is very happy in the Rock Creek Facility. She likes the food and the apartment. I am very happy she is there because she is in a clean environment where she gets all three meals per day and they clean her apartment once a week. They have several emergency pull cords in the room, so if she were to fall, she could get help.
I also like that if she doesn't show up for meals several times in a row, someone would check on her.
The staff is wonderful. They are supportive and kind and living there gives my mom a sense of community so she is not so lonely.
I have been working with a resident for the past 18 months providing direct care. The resident is living independently, but requires additional supports to maintain independence within the community. The staff has been very accommodating and the facility is well maintained. The resident has expressed enjoying the food and dinning room experience.
