The Leisure Care Difference

Today's older adults aren't wrapping up their life's journey, they're seeking a new one. And Leisure Care is here to inspire them to embrace joy and purpose in their lives. For nearly 50 years, we've been reimagining and reinventing senior living, making sure older adults have the most fulfilling, rewarding, and productive opportunities possible.

From our hospitality-based care to our signature programming, we take a beyond-the-body approach to well-being that goes beyond the basics because we know you're anything but. We're paying attention, providing new and innovative ways to help seniors rediscover, reinvigorate and occasionally even reinvent themselves.

Portland Independent Living Q&A

Independent living meets a unique need for many seniors, providing a strong sense of community and belonging, helping seniors avoid social isolation and stay socially engaged. Independent living facilities do not provide care services although many independent living communities do offer assisted living or memory care services for an additional cost.

In assisted living, residents receive assistance with activities of daily living which include bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication management. Independent living communities are more focused on helping residents remain independent by providing access to health and wellness resources and social gatherings.

There are a number of ways to pay for senior living and senior care. Some seniors use private funds or funds from real estate assets. Independent living is typically all-inclusive.

Independent living accommodations vary in each senior community. At The Ackerly at Timberland, residents enjoy studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartment homes. Most apartments have a full kitchen, a balcony, or a patio and all have independent climate controls.

Medicare does not cover independent living costs or most assisted living costs. It can cover short-term care expenses in some circumstances. [lc-faq-item question="What is the average cost of senior living in the Portland, OR area?"] According to Genworth’s 2019 Cost of Care Survey, the average cost of assisted living in Portland, OR is $4,998 per month.
