Mr. and Mrs. R are a lovely couple with a close-knit family. The entire family was involved in the process of helping them decide to move from their 3-story condo to an independent living community.
Because they knew that Mr. R’s Parkinson’s would worsen over the years, they chose a community that also had assisted living on the same campus. They moved into a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in a wonderful senior living community that was recently remodeled. The apartment was large enough fit their furnishings nicely, and the activities offered appealed to both of them. After they moved in, they put their condo up for sale and thanks to the great housing market in the Portland area, the condo sold quickly.
Mr. N is a 77 year-old man with moderate to advanced dementia. His family contacted us, looking to move him from another city, to Portland to be closer to his family. Mr. N’s wife had recently passed away and he was living in a city with no family members nearby…
We initially toured three communities together, some were stand-alone memory care communities, and others had assisted living and/or independent living on the same campus. All of them would meet Mr. N’s needs, but his daughter felt most positive about the third community we visited. She went back with her sister to revisit that one, and they put down a deposit to hold the available room.
Mr. and Mrs. J are in their mid-80’s. They lived in an independent living community in Arizona. Their adult children live in the Portland area and wanted their parents to live closer to them, since Mr. and Mrs. J had no family nearby in Arizona.
Mr. J was independent and very healthy, but Mrs. J was having quite a bit of unsteadiness on her feet, which caused a fall that resulted in a fracture. Because of the fracture, she was rehabilitating in a skilled nursing facility to get her up and walking again.
