I am a friend or relative of resident

My comment is brief due to my living on the other side of the country. My mother has been at Pacific Gardens for over 2 years. I have been able to visit her twice. She and I are very close but circumstances led to us living far apart. I am amazed at how wonderful the staff and facilities of Pacific Gardens are. We feel blessed to have our mother with them. You can have complete confidence in having your loved ones there too. Please feel free to contact me for more information.

I visited this facility

This is an assisted living and memory care facility located in east Portland, next to a church, partially obscured by trees. There is an obscure sign marking it, so the first time you look for it, you may drive by. The building itself is very clean and sturdy, completely free of smells, with homey touches such as flowers all around. The rooms, most of them private, are always immaculate, and of an adequate size that fits a bed and a couple dressers, with shared baths. Outside each room is some biographical information posted about each resident, which seems to help the staff get to know them. The staff seems friendly. The care is good, too"”the providers are very in tune with residents' care and condition. While there has recently been a turnover at the helm, and the new director seems genuinely committed to the residents and takes time to get to know the residents. Most are free to roam around; the staff is present, but not on their tails. And there are alarm systems in place for monitoring and safety. Because the director of nursing and executive director seem so alert, the residents seem safe at all times. In many facilities, the staff seems to forget about the residents' charts and paperwork, but not here. The care conferences are very thorough, with good communication with both the family members and outside caregivers. The scheduled activities include birthday parties, arts and crafts, pet therapy dogs, but nothing aimed directly at enhancing memory. There is music therapy, though, which is wildly popular. Some residents play the piano, and there is a constant karaoke going on; residents frequently forget their family members, but will amazing remember every word to a song they knew long ago. There is also a locked courtyard, where residents can go with some staff assistance. The cost is somewhat less expensive than other facilities in the area.
