Brothers Review The Springs Living in Tanasbourne Oregon
Two Brothers' Story
"Mom moved into The Springs at Tanasbourne in Sept. 2015. She moved cross-country so the stress level was high, and we were all feeling overwhelmed. The folks at The Springs brought us calm and peace as they were very responsive to our needs and questions. They made every effort to make sure Mom was safe, sound and happy. The Springs continues to impress with their almost weekly fun special events - beyond the more routine weekly fun items to choose from. These special, very-imaginative activities include things such as a Camp Out party with games and decor AND a Trip Around the World with stops at several countries - where the entire experience always exceeds expectations! They make living fun-filled and upbeat. I cannot express how lovely the place and people are....no, it's not cheap, but this is a case of "you get what you pay for". Mom is happier than I've seen her in years since her life has been enriched by new friends, things to do (on location or mini trips away), great food, and attentive, respectful and friendly staff. Highly recommended!"

"Thank you for the amazing care you are giving our mother. She feels so comfortable in her home at The Springs at Mill Creek! She feels the caring every day. Best of all, she isn't afraid to ask for the help she needs -- a big step for Mom!

We also feel like we are all more relaxed! Mom is so happy and enjoys everyone there and all of the activities. She welcomes visitors, but not for too long, which we find to be funny because she doesn't like to disrupt her "schedule." Now, she prefers for us to come to her home (The Springs at Mill Creek), where she used to prefer us picking her up and taking her out for overnighters or to stay with us, her family.

We are doing everything possible to do what MOM wants to do and are realizing that she probably wanted to do this (move) for a long time while we were dragging her all over three states to be part of our lives. We now know that Mom must have been more isolated and lonely than we knew.
Again, thank you to everyone at The Springs! She feels known, cared for, acknowledged. She feels great camaraderie. Sometimes she lives in the past, but now looks to the future.

The Springs at Mill Creek was love at first sight for Mom.

I would also like to add that Toni (the executive director) at The Springs at Mill Creek is such a personal gal. She knows EVERYONE, and she has been a joy in Mom's life. After Mom's first week living there, Toni called and let us know that Mom was the most well-adjusted "newbie" at The Springs! It meant so much! Mom has been nothing but excited about her new life there. She feels like she lives in a plush hotel and, with all of the daily activities, thinks she is on a cruise.

We are so happy for our mom, Joyce. We call her "Re-Joyce" now as she has stepped away from grieving over my dad's death, moved out of her old lonely house of 66 years and embraced her wonderful new life."

"I have been dining every Thanksgiving & Christmas at Anna Maria Creekside (now called The Springs at Anna Maria) for over 12 years. My mother lives at (The Springs at) Anna Maria and the meals are always very good on Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year on both occasions the meals have been exceptionally good. The quality of the food and the selection was great. The preparation was extremely timely and all food was warm and tasty. The wait staff was extremely friendly and spared no effort to make all of us comfortable. Some of the younger staff members started as early as 6am. The effort they put forth was not unnoticed. They are all to be commended. Hope is working extremely hard to make all our holiday experience the best it can be. She is always present to make sure everything runs smoothly, also to be commended. Keep up the good work, I can't wait until the next holiday to have a great feast! Your employees are the best!"

"The first thing we noticed about The Springs was the positive, happy attitude that everyone had. Then we discovered that there were activities, for both men and women. There is the great weight room and swimming pool. There is the putting green with tournaments, There us music in the pub every Friday. Every activity that you can imagine is right here. The bus takes you shopping and to medical appointments, (no need to climb in as there is a ramp). Having been to other facilities and lived in another facility, nothing could compare to The Springs, Even our great grandsons want to live here. And when they thrown a party every month, they really know how to throw party! Did I mention the positive, happy attitude that everyone has?"

"The Springs has been my new home for the past year. It has been a very happy period for me at this stage of my life. I am extremely pleased with my choice of The Springs to love. In my search for a senior living facility throughout Multnomah and Washington counties, The Springs excelled over all others. In my opinion, The Springs provides superior food, activities and services. I love it here, I'm staying!"
- Duane Terry, Charter Resident
"We are among the 'more elderly' here at The Springs. We have celebrated our second wedding anniversary here, our 'one year' move in celebration and every day has been a Reward Day! We were encouraged and assisted by our daughters and families, We have a modest, adequate apartment and have access to enjoy the lovely space and amenities always available to us at The Springs. We are delighted with the warm and charming staff who appear to enjoy spoiling us, They direct events, games, therapies, drive us to appointments and provide interesting recreational trips.The open seating and eating times in any of the three restaurants where delicious food, delightfully served, encourages new friendships. And we enjoy inviting old friends and families to share this special place, The Springs. A superb place to live."

"I have found caregivers to be almost unfailing in their compassion for both the residents and their family members. Their resilience in the face of work that is so demanding and so difficult much of the time is remarkable. I can’t thank them enough and will always feel grateful and lucky that I placed my spouse at The Springs at Wilsonville. It is a very special place."
- Sharon Buckmaster, PhD., The Springs at Wilsonville
"I moved to The Springs at Grand Park with my husband in March of 2015. We relocated from Powell, Wyoming. My husband suffered dementia and had a lot of health problems. After moving together, my husband soon transferred to the memory care community where he thrived. I am so happy with my location and being closer to my family and spending time with them.

My health is important to me and I like to maintain my health and exercise is a part of my daily routine. Walking around the community and the nearby park feels so spacious.

The people around here are so friendly and nice to me, they help me with whatever I want. My friends that I made here are so friendly. We bond together with speaking about our past, but also about our enjoyment together here at The Springs at Grand Park.

If I spoke with someone looking to move, I would tell them they couldn’t find a better place than here at The Springs at Grand Park. The staff are so willing to help and this is my home and that’s what I tell my family too!"
- Beulah Dorman, Resident since March 2015, The Springs at Grand Park
"Before moving to The Springs at Wilsonville, I lived about a mile from here - at Canyon Creek Meadows. I had a home which seemed perfect for me and my dog, but when he passed on, the house and yard seemed too much for me, and I started looking for something smaller - including an apartment here at The Springs at Wilsonville.

I discovered that I could actually “try out” living at The Springs at Wilsonville by having a “respite stay.” That seemed like a good idea, so I spent a month at The Springs at Wilsonville getting acquainted with the staff, the residents, and the facility. I enjoyed the respite stay so much that I decided to put my house up for sale. Eventually, I sold my house and moved into one of the Forest Court apartments.

This turned out to be the perfect move for me - the perfect place at the perfect time. It was the perfect time because I was soon to get a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease from my doctor. If I had waited much longer to sell my house, I might not have been able to do the physical work entailed in making such a move. And The Springs at WIlsonville turned out to be the perfect place to move to because it does so many things for me that I used to have to do myself. Not having to do things like cooking, cleaning, and yard work, I can concentrate on the challenges presented by Parkinson's, and even consider the possibility of completing some writing that I had given up on."
