Continuing Care in Lake Oswego

A Plan, Just in Case

As a CCRC (continuing care retirement community) in Lake Oswego, Mary’s Woods provides levels of care through the on-site Marie Rose Health Center and Kellogg Assisted Living. The friendly ambiance and nurturing elegance found throughout Mary’s Woods is reflected in our healthcare neighborhoods.

You’ll find the same commitment to person-directed care, where every individual is honored, supported and encouraged to fully develop and live a joyful life in a healthy home. Caregivers and residents come together as a united team – respecting integrity and offering compassion – and share ideas and concerns, continually growing together, as would happen in any home.

Retirement gets even better when you consider the peace of mind that comes with such easy access to assisted living, memory care, residential care and rehabilitation services. It’s all part of the enriching lifestyle enjoyed by residents of Mary’s Woods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes called a Life Plan Community, a CCRC (or continuing care retirement community) is a type of senior living community offering independent living along with a continuum of health care on one campus. The levels of care usually include:

  • Assisted living: Daily help with personal activities including grooming, bathing, meal preparation and ambulation
  • Memory Care: Specialized programs in a secure setting for those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias
  • Rehabilitation: Therapies and treatments that support recovery after injury, illness or surgery.

If there’s ever a change in your health, you won’t need to move to another community. A full continuum of care is available on the Mary’s Wood’s campus, and you’ll already know and trust the caregivers in the community.

For couples, this is especially helpful. If one of them moves into care, the other stays close. It’s also easier to ensure that a loved one is receiving the services they need to thrive and stay as independent as possible.

Long-term care insurance is an insurance policy purchased by a resident through a private insurance company. A long-term care policy can be used to help cover the cost of long-term care and, in some cases, assisted living.

Mary’s Woods doesn’t bill long-term care insurance directly; however, we’re happy to help residents with the necessary information for reimbursement. Check with your insurance provider for the specifics of your coverage.
