River Valley Landing Description
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at River Valley is ideally situated one half mile from I-5 and I-205, right next door to Legacy Meridian Park Hospital, which is one of the highest rated hospitals in the U.S. While our retirement community is close to exciting downtown Portland, our property is bordered by protected green space and encircled by park-like lawns, meadows and stately established trees. A quiet, peaceful setting, with easy accessibility to all that Portland has to offer, makes River Valley Landing the perfect location!
Emeritus at River Valley is surrounded by beautiful wine country, yet we have easy accessibility to I-5. Scenic drives, visits to a local casino, a quick trip to Seaside on the spectacular Oregon Coast for chowder, the Oregon Garden Oregon Botanical Gardens, Woodburn Outlet Malls, Broadway Theater in Tigard, historic Oregon City and of course, all of the cultural activities, museums and attractions in downtown Portland are just minutes away! In addition, within a three-mile radius of River Valley Landing are many shops, restaurants, libraries, parks and hiking trails running along the beautiful Tualatin River and Wildlife Refuge.
We often organize trips to the refuge, where there are wheelchair-accessible trails for the enjoyment for our outdoor enthusiasts and bird watchers. Lake Oswego Golf Course is also close by--just 12 minutes from our community. Residents also love to watch the electronic-controlled model boat races on Tualatin Lake, and we often take residents to one of our many local rivers to enjoy an afternoon of fishing. In addition, we are located close to many of the churches our residents have attended all of their lives, making it easy for them to continue belonging to the church of their choice.
A Wonderful Selection
Our gracious, comfortable three-story retirement community has 104 spacious senior apartments, including studios, one-bedrooms, one-bedroom deluxe with two baths, and two-bedroom/two-baths. All apartments include a full ADA-certified bathroom, small kitchenette and plenty of closets and cabinets. Most apartments have individual balconies or porches offering a private outdoor space and views of our beautiful park-like setting and distant mountains. In addition, there is ample parking available for residents who drive. There are no buy-in fees or leases; all apartments are rented on a month-to-month basis.
River Valley Landing features a very large living room with grand piano, a lobby with a sitting area and gas fireplace, and an elegant dining room with one full wall of windows overlooking our beautifully landscaped property. We also have an intimate library, a billiards room and a coffee bistro, where residents love to read the newspaper and do daily crossword puzzles.
Our senior living community also features an artist studio, set up with easels and paints for our many residents who are artists, including two that taught art at the university level. Our hallways are spacious with rails on one side, and each hallway has numerous nooks tucked away for quiet visiting or curling up with a good book. Snack and pop vending machines are located in our activities room, and each floor has a full complimentary laundry room. Whether dining with friends, borrowing a book from the library, taking a beloved pet for a stroll, bird watching from the patio or sitting on the covered front porch people watching, our community is designed to embrace residents with the warmth and comfort of home.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We bring in outside physical, occupational and speech therapists to work with residents, right here in the comfort of their own home. With this flexibility, residents can choose therapists who they may have been working with in the past. We are also situated next to Legacy Meridian Park Hospital and to many medical clinics and physician offices. In addition, residents can use our house-preferred pharmacist for medications, or they can continue using their own; it’s always their choice.
We work closely with several different hospice teams in the immediate area, including Willamette, Providence Hospice, Hospice of the NW, Legacy Hospice and Kaiser Hospice. Should family members wish to be with their loved one while they are receiving hospice care, they are always welcome to stay in one of our guest suites.
We pride ourselves on the longevity of our staff; several of our resident assistants and med aides have been with us for 15-plus years. Our management team also includes several professionals who have been in the senior health care field for most of their career and worked here for more than a decade. Because of their longevity, our staff knows our residents well, and as a result, they can more easily recognize if something isn’t quite right. In many cases, they have been able to catch serious illnesses before they become full blown. We also employ a full-time registered nurse, who oversees all of our caregivers.
This includes our staff of med aids, who are responsible for ordering and dispensing mediations, as well as contacting physicians for clarification and recommendations. Our residents often use such words as sympathetic, approachable, accessible and compassionate when describing our staff--an attitude that comes directly from our executive director. As one resident recently said, “Rich is a great administrator; he’s very helpful and easy to communicate with. He listens and his door is always open.”
Emeritus at River Valley has earned a deficiency-free status on its state survey. In addition, we were listed as one of the top ten senior living communities in the Portland Business Journal. But most importantly, we often receive wonderful notes of gratitude from our residents and their families, like these: “Words are inadequate to express all that my heart would say to you regarding my appreciation for the loving care given my mother and for your guidance in helping me navigate a new chapter in her life. Mom calls the caregivers her angels. Thank you again for being such a caring and supportive community.” “Violeta took all my qualms away with her calm concern and reassurance.” “The food is very good. All the ‘girls’ are so kind, we feel really safe here.” “Your caregivers are loving and compassionate.” “Thank you for doing my laundry when I wasn’t feeling well even though it’s not one of the regular services I need done.”
