Reviews of Northwest Place
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I am more partial to this facility more so then many of the other facilities I visit, because in this facility lives my beautiful, wonderful great aunt. She is the sweetest lady in the world and therefore deserves the greatest care.
I visit frequently and am always critically watching everything happening around the facility from the staff interacting with residents to the relationships between the residents themselves and I can happily say that I have never been disappointed with the care or treatment my aunt receives, because it has always been exceptional.
There are many areas throughout the facility for her to relax and socialize with the many friends she has made since moving in. She loves to garden, always has, so it was perfect that we found Northwest Place with it's gorgeous gardens, wild flowers, greenery shrubs, shade trees, sitting areas, and wonderful raised garden boxes for the resident gardeners to enjoy working with. The landscaping surrounding the facility is breathtaking, everything is so lush.
The facility itself is gorgeous from the inside out and there is so much to experience. The facility is located in one of my and my aunt's favorite areas in Portland, as there are so many little shops, deli's, coffee shops, etc.
I have always been so thankful that we were able to find such a great fit for my aunt, everything about the facility is perfect for my aunt and is ideal for her needs and personality. I know that she is in the best, most loving of hands.

This is a sister facility to SpringRidge at Charbonneau, also owned by owned Senior Resource Group (SRG), which is known to be a good management company that puts lots of effort into maintaining the facilities and hiring good staff.
The facility was originally built for toney church members, but was sold to SRG about 10 years ago.
It is a beautiful place, located in a charming neighborhood in northwest Portland, with large Victorian mansions, boutiques, coffee shops, bistros and a library nearby, within walking distance. A drawback is limited parking, since it’s a congested area, so residents with cars may find that difficult.
It’s very secure—with a keypad and staff who makes sure they know who is coming and going.
It’s all independent living—about 60 apartments, with good-sized kitchens, nice sitting rooms and high ceilings. There is definition between the living room and bedroom, which is a nice touch.
There is a lovely large outdoor terrace where people sit outside and also can do gardening in elevated beds if so inclined.
Inside is a nice sitting area and library—and a beautiful dining set with linens and nice tableware. The food is good, and there is a wide variety of choices daily.
The staff is very service-oriented and very attentive to the residents. But residents who need more care than is generally available in assisted living must hire private caregivers.
Also, because it’s considered independent living, there are not a lot of planned activities offered, but lots of family members visit—and the residents themselves have organized clubs for gardening and books and such.
NorthWest Place is a beautiful little gem of a place, with an ideal location, especially for those with family members who live nearby. It would be best for those who want to enjoy the area and are fairly independent. The worst fit would be someone with high needs or memory care issues.
The cost runs between $4,000 and $5,000 monthly, depending on the size of the room.
