    CHERRY PARK_100 PX HIGH

     

    Cherry Park Plaza, located in Troutdale, OR, just east of Portland, supports three levels of senior living. First, independent living provides active seniors a lifestyle of support and ease of living in a private residence as part of a community. Second, assisted living transitions a senior who needs extra personal care around the clock. And third, for seniors who have dementia and need a secured living situation, memory care provides all aspects of assisted living from caregivers who understand the nuances and needs of people suffering from dementia. Our Senior Living care in Troutdale, OR, offers the perfect mix of personal care and hospitality tailored to meet the individual needs of residents. At Cherry Park Plaza, we believe that residents should maintain control over their life choices, seek new opportunities to enrich their lives, and enjoy each day to the fullest. We want to be a supportive force that brings great customer service and exceptional care each day.
