Carefree Living in a Caring Community at Elmcroft of Sellwood

Our senior living home has been part of the Sellwood community since 2005. Residents enjoy a pleasant, homestyle environment and the opportunity to engage in activities and fun throughout the day. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.

We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our assisted living home is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Private apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service, as needs arise. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our greenhouse, gardens and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation. 

What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Sellwood is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.


Respectful, Compassionate Care 

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. From tenured management and specially trained caregivers, to professional support personnel, the people who work here really care. Our 24-hour on-call nursing and medical professionals, as well as our culinary staff, housekeeping staff and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.

When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our assisted living staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like fitness classes, gardening, crafts, live entertainment and field trips.

Convenient, Family-Friendly Location

Health and Wellness

Helping our residents stay healthy is part of our mission. We coordinate with their outside healthcare providers and provide transportation to and from appointments. Local physicians who visit the community provide care, as needed.
