Reviews of Independent Living Facilities in Portland
Disappointed family member.

When my relative moved in, things were okay. But as their health deteriorated, so did the compassion by some staff. RN\'s refused to take any accountability for their staff. If you love your relatives, Don\'t move them here!!

I am in Brookdale Oswego Springs Portland. It's very nice, very convenient, and pleasant. The staff is really nice and friendly, I have no complaints. They're having some activities, but not too many because of the pandemic. They had canceled some things, but they are still available all the time. They had a little New Year's party in the afternoon on the 2nd of the month, and there's a thing called bring games. I wasn't there for that because I had an appointment. They have things you can participate in if you wish, and they're very careful. They also have things locked out for distancing. They'll have a little sign "Don't sit here" that kind of thing, and they're very careful about that. They take our temperature a couple of times a day. I like the way they're handling this. They talk to us about when we'll possibly get the vaccine and what to do, which is not mandatory, but they encourage us to do it. They're very good. The food is also very good. A few people sit in the dining room, but mostly they bring the food to the rooms. And you can't use real plates. My only disappointment is that the food is a little lukewarm by the time it gets to you because of that, but that's fine, I can heat it up. It's excellent food and it's well prepared. They just changed the activity person, and I think she's very good. I'm on the first floor, so I'm kind of close to everything. As far as these places go and from what I know, I think the value for money is very good. I have Medicaid, so it's helpful to me with a low income because Medicaid helps with it.

Parkrose Chateau was very nice. They have studios, 1 and 2-bedroom apartments, a dining room, and 3 meals a day. They had exercise machines and activities. The staff during the tour was very nice.

Parkrose Chateau was absolutely wonderful. The staff showed me several versions of different types of places. She walked me through the whole place. It was very nice. I have had a meal experience there and it was awesome. They have a shuttle that takes the residents out and about. They have a bridge club and they have people that do puzzles. They have all kinds of activities that are very cool. When I got there it was getting late, but the view was absolutely breathtaking. She took me into a couple of apartments that have a view that is to die for.

The tour at Parkrose Chateau was fine. The place was very nice and was in good shape. It was also clean; however, the rooms were just too small for me. The staff members were very helpful and very nice. Dining there was among the best that I have encountered. They also had plenty of activities. There was a library and a movie room.
