14 THE PORTLAND GUIDE | Discover Oregon Senior Living
Moving to a new city, and simultaneously relocating parents,
is complicated and stressful. Just by itself, finding the right
home for parents to settle into is daunting. Here is one smart
idea to get your search started:
To trust someone with your loved
ones, you need to feel confident
about their qualifications, skills and
attention to your needs and concerns.
Finding a place with an excellent reputation
is a priority.
Terwilliger Plaza is only one of a few
accredited, self-governing, continuing care
communities in North America with a mission
to serve the people who live there. As such,
Terwilliger’s residents have a voice and a vote to
ensure, and accomplish, what the community
wants. The Board members live there, as well,
and are elected by peers mostly composed of
Terwilliger Plaza residents. It’s one reason no one
is required to sign up for a meal plan.
One popular option at Terwilliger—The
Tower—gives residents the option to live high
above downtown with apartments that are bright,
contemporary and full of windows. There are 12
stories of options to choose from with amazing
views. Apartments range from 378 to 1,160
square feet of living area. Option two—The
Heights—gives residents a deck geared for serious
entertaining in a contemporary, 8-story setting.
With 48 luxury apartments (two or three
bedrooms), it’s the perfect place to spread out,
relax and enjoy.
