The Springs Living Story
Senior Living That Feels Like Home

Humble Beginnings &
Deep Roots

The Springs Living was named after the Lehman Hot Springs in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon where Fee Stubblefield grew up. From the 1800s to the early 1900s, Lehman Hot Springs was considered sacred ground by Native Americans in the area. The young people, who were healthy and strong, would bring their elders to soak and meditate, and they would feel refreshed and rejuvenated. This became Fee’s inspiration for the company’s name when he began dreaming of building a community for his grandmother.

Family Ties
Make the Difference

The Springs Living was founded for family and that point of view still drives every decision today. It’s a difference residents, their families, and our employees can feel when they walk through the door. Here, you are never alone and you are surrounded by people who are driven by serving others. Our communities are warm and comfortable, and we treat everyone as if they were part of our own family.
