From its humble origins as a campground for tired pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail to Portland, Gresham has grown into a vibrant city, now the fourth largest in Oregon State. Located just East of Portland on the banks of the Columbia River, the city of Gresham basks in spectacular views of both the riverfront and nearby Mt. Hood. Between the area’s natural beauty and its proximity to the metropolitan services of Portland, residents of a Gresham nursing home get the best of both suburban and urban living.
When making a decision about whether to place your family member or loved one into a long-term care community, it is important to understand the different types of long-term care. Nursing homes are residences that provide care giving and medical services to seniors with severe physical and mental disabilities. Most residents are incapable of caring for themselves without assistance and usually require intensive medical care and supervision.
Nursing homes are often confused with assisted living residences which also provide daily care giving services such as help with dressing, bathing and meals but do not provide round-the-clock healthcare and do not usually employ full-time medical staff.
