I visited this facility
Golden Acres is what's called a residential care facility in Oregon. I had a client there and visited many times. It's basically assisted living but with more closely supervised 24-hour care. It's mainly for mentally ill seniors"”those with schizophrenia, for example"”and the care is phenomenal. They know what the residents need and they adapt to them. They're also extremely caring, warm, and well trained.
It's an older facility and a bit run down. The rooms are small"”just 1 bedroom with shared bath----with a bed, dresser, and closet. It's not luxurious. The building is one story in the shape of a horseshoe, and there's a locked gate for safety reasons.
I've never eaten there, but my client actually gained, and the food always looks good. It's appetizing.
There's also a full activities program: Bingo, gardening, music, arts and crafts, church services.
It's in East Portland, centrally located"”close to shops, restaurants, and easily accessible.
Residents don't have to be mentally ill to live there, but anyone who isn't would likely feel out of place.
