Sip, savor and linger at open house
Parkview Christian Retirement Community, 1825 N.E. 108th Ave., was established in 1945 to provide affordable housing, services and fellowship for seniors. This independent retirement and assisted-living community invites you to visit its beautiful park-like campus Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. for the 18th annual Valentine Open House.
Parkview, originally known as Oregon Baptist Retirement Home and located in Northwest Portland, moved to its Parkrose Heights location in 1987. Since then a computer center, game rooms and an exercise room have been added; the library has been enhanced; and a full-time wellness coordinator has joined the staff.
If you’re searching for a place where you can enjoy the freedom of having your own apartment nestled on a gorgeously landscaped campus while belonging to a close fellowship, Parkview is filled with new friends waiting to meet you. Packages are available for as low as $1,615 per month. There are special benefits available to veterans.
