Robison Jewish Health Center

Review by Local Professional


What a lovely community! As a discharge planner, I appreciate when communities are able to provide multiple levels of care. I am a strong advocate of aging in place and Robison really allows that to happen. Beautiful location and campus, friendly staff, all the amenities our seniors could ask for.

Information About Nursing Home in Portland

Portland Overview

Located in the Willamette Valley, Portland is the third largest city in the Pacific Northwest. Residents of Portland nursing homes enjoy summers that are warm and sunny and winters which are mild. This climate is especially fruitful for cultivating roses and Portland has been known as the "City of Roses" for more than a century. Portland Oregon skylineAs an increasing number of seniors require special care, their families must make a decision about their long-term care. In doing so, it is important to understand the differences between the different types of long-term care facilities. Nursing homes are residential communities with professional nursing staff who care for individuals with a chronic illness or disability who no longer are able to care for themselves. Nursing homes differ from "assisted living" communities which provide residential care and assistance to seniors who need help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and taking medication but are free from serious illness.
