Assisted Living

Couple Sell Condo, Move to Independent Living

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. Continue reading

77 Year-Old with Dementia

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. Continue reading

Adult Foster Care Home is New Home

An adult foster care home can be an ideal solution for an elderly family member. Mrs. R is a 93-year old woman who has lived in Beaverton, OR with her 70-year old son for several years. Her son "E" loves his mother and was a good caregiver for her, but at the same time he wanted to retire and be a snowbird part of the year. He was conflicted about what to do about his mother. She is a lovely woman who needs assistance showering and help in and out of a back brace in the morning and evening. She is also legally blind and needs help with medication administration. Her son felt uncomfortable helping his mother with her shower, so would ask his sister to come over and assist... "E" contacted us and asked what would be good senior living options for his mother. We talked about assisted living and adult foster care. Mrs. R has a pleasant personality but is not very social around a lot of people, and since she can't see well she does not participate in card games, board games, and the like. She feels more comfortable in a small setting. For this reason, we ruled out assisted living and decided to concentrate on adult foster care homes in the Beaverton area. Continue reading

Couple from Out-of-State Moving to Assisted Living

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. Continue reading
