I started to think about relocating to Portland from Austin, Texas, to be closer to family members a couple of years after my wife passed away. Approaching my eightieth birthday, I decided that it would be wise for me to move to a retirement home where I wouldn’t have to worry about things like home maintenance and cooking for one. I enjoy going to the theater and the symphony, and I like an urban environment, so I wanted to live close to downtown with easy access to public transportation. And most importantly, having lived by myself for several years, I wanted to live in a smaller community where I could get to know all my fellow residents. I made several trips to Portland to look at retirement homes but couldn’t find anything I liked. The facilities were either too remote, didn’t have good access to public transportation, or were too big. Despairing of finding a place I liked, I had almost given up on moving to Portland when, by chance, someone suggested I take a look at NorthWest Place. Located in a residential neighborhood surrounded by a mix of stately Victorian homes and small apartment buildings, NorthWest Place was just what I wanted. A short walk takes you to the bus and trolley stop, both of which will get you downtown within a few minutes, while the commercial corridor between NW 21st Avenue and NW 23rd Avenue offers a wide variety of shopping and dining options. NorthWest Place is located in a four-story building containing forty-six residential apartments and a restaurant offering seated service with a varied menu that changes daily. Other facilities include an activity room, a library, a game room, and a well-appointed living area for public gatherings. Off-street covered parking is available, and weekly maid service is included. A rooftop garden provides a delightful place to take in a bit of sun and fresh air or sit in the shade and read a good book. While lacking some of the facilities offered by big retirement homes, NorthWest Place more than makes up for this with a strong sense of community. In the two years I have lived here, I have gotten to know almost all the other residents and have made many new friends. I have enjoyed participating in planned activities offered by NorthWest Place and more spontaneous events like get-togethers with my fellow residents for a glass of wine before dinner. I’m pleased with my choice of NorthWest Place as a retirement home and look forward to spending many more enjoyable years living here. I recommend it highly to anyone looking for an active lifestyle in a vibrant residential community.

The staff here are friendly and receptive, but sometimes the decisions are made by SRG corporate offices in California. Our dining room has made tremendous improvements in food quality and variety. My partner and I rarely are disappointed by the selection and quality of the food. We enjoy inviting our friends and family to join us for dinner. The Executive Board of the residents association is working hard to make Northwest Place a real home for the residents. The local management is very receptive to ideas and works very hard to accommodate new ideas and changes. The activities have improved dramatically since the major scare of Covid is past. All the residents got Covid shots and every precaution continues to be taken to see we keep each other safe. There is an easy going friendliness about Northwest Place and its location is terrific! Many of the things I complained about during the height of the Covid pandemic have been resolved. I'm pretty sure lessons have been learned and procedures will continue to improve.

Shannon is a real pro, and a very warm person. Northwest Place is still at the top of my list. My 2nd visit was to see an apt on the other side of the building, to try the food and to meet some residents. Shannon did a stellar job picking 2 women with whom I had a lot in common. The apt she showed me was fantastic. The food is one of my big concerns, and lunch reinforced my rather low expectation. Every staff member I met there and every resident was wonderful. I am a vegetarian/vegan, favoring organic produce, and I find the menus uninspiring (I am looking for inspiration - just fresh taste, more flavor and definitely more liberal use of veggies, herbs and other seasonings (even lemon juice to brighten flavors). Because this is a very small community, Shannon said it may be possible for me to engage with the chef and encourage some variety and positive changes. Currently it is rather institutional (my mom had been at 3 different senior communities, and I am sadly familiar with

My father has been living here for the past five years and it has exceptional service and has met all his needs. He has enjoyed the happy hours, trips around Portland and the patio for some rays of sun. Unfortunately he needs more assistance so will be moving on but the residents and staff are wonderful and very helpful.

Shannon was very professional, and had good people skills. I am just starting my research on Senior Living Places, so I don’t have any more questions at this time.

I like everything about Northwest Place except having to pay for two daily meals whether you eat in the dining room or not. I prefer to do some of my own cooking and entertain family and friends; plus occasionally eat in a restaurant.

I came at a time and day that was very busy. Both Lucy and Shannon were gracious and helpful. And probably with my just ‘dropping in’ they showed great respect and gave me more time than I expected. If Lucy and Shannon are examples of what NorthWest Place has to offer, I am very impressed.
