"We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do." This is a simple promise that the staff at Oswego Springs- and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities- has shared since our Portland, Oregon assisted living community first opened its doors. It's a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful- a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retirees who have chosen our community for its active lifestyle.
Oswego Springs is located in a quiet residential neighborhood next to Portland Community College at Sylvania College. We are surrounded by a wooded area, yet many stores and businesses are close at hand. Health and hygiene assistance are provided with dignity and privacy. Light housekeeping and linen services are also included. Nutritious meals are prepared on site and served communally in the dining room. Socialization and entertainment are important here - group outings to the many attractions of Portland occur regularly. The landscaped grounds are ideal for outdoor relaxation, and the cozy common areas are perfect for a quiet book or craft project. Transportation to medical appointments and group outings is provided. Pets are welcome! With easy access to I-5 from the Barber Exit, we are also just minutes from Portland’s International Rose Test Garden, quaint historic districts, entertainment, fine dining and numerous hospitals, including Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Two skilled nursing facilities – the Pearl at Cruise Way and Marquis Care at Vermont Hills – are also close by. Our ideal setting allows residents to enjoy all the advantages of city living – yet feel as if they are in the country.
With easy access to I-5, we can get into downtown Portland in just seven minutes. From attending performances of the Nutcracker to wandering the paved pathways at the Portland International Rose Test Garden to visiting local museums and taking scenic drives through Washington Park, we do as much as possible to take advantage of all that this wonderful city has to offer. We also take residents on outings beyond city limits, including to the Tulip Festival in Wilsonville, to Spirit Mountain Casino and to spectacular Multnomah Falls, less than an hour’s drive from our senior living community.
