Commitment remains, name changes
Oregon Baptist Retirement Homes has become Parkview Christian Retirement Community. Located at 1825 N.E. 108th Ave. since 1995, this vibrant, active retirement community is changing its name to better attract those who will enjoy the park-like setting and convivial surroundings.

It will retain its affiliation with the Baptist church, but because the community serves residents of all faiths, operators believe the name change better reflects this. In addition, because it is more than simply a retirement home, it has changed the name to showcase the community aspect of living at Parkview. Its commitment to providing a healthy, engaged lifestyle to seniors remains unchanged.

To learn more or to tour Parkview Christian Retirement Community, please call 503-255-7160.
