Customer Reviews

This was our second choice. Probably the friendliest. Staff appear to be most successful in keeping clients open and engaged. Client services are more expensive here than other places we checked. Total cost (room, board, and services) among the highest.

Good communication from the staff

My Mom has been here for about a month and a half and things seem to be going well enough. It’s been a bit of a transition, but the staff has been very patient and anytime I have any questions or concerns they’re able to address those in a good amount of time. There’s really good communication back and forth. The dining area always smells wonderful and the menu looks like it has some pretty good options. The facility will take the residents out once a week to do some site seeing or take them to the store and they have a monthly calendar filled with planned events that everyone can participate in.

A tour for mom's care

We toured this community for my mom's care. We did not like this location for my brother and I could get it is needed. The community was not as lively for my mom. The community is classy. We liked the lunch that we had. They do offer. We would suggest that families tour

Clean Property!!

I have no complaint of how things went for my loved one and our tour of this community. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions we had for them. I liked how clean everything was and the open floor plan. It was just not the right fit for us in the end decision.

Good community

Powell Valley Assisted Living & Memory Care was a very nice and clean community that we toured. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We chose another community due to the price was too high for our budget.

Care and comfort.

I am very happy with this community for the care. The staff is outstanding. and keep me informed on any changes. The community offers a lot of healthy meals that are very appealing. We liked the list of activities that are offered to the residents. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one to other families looking for care.

This is an outstanding community. The staff is caring and attentive to my parent's needs. The menu is very good and they like the variety of healthy meals and flexible meal times. The community needs to make sure that prescribed medications are always available for when needed. The facility and surrounding grounds are clean and well maintained. There are many activities and local shopping trips are available.

Older community but well-maintained

Powell Valley is an older community but still very nice. The people were very kind and welcoming.

Though I liked the dedication of the staff to the clients, I was not too fond of the shared room situation. The space of the individuals actual private space was large. Almost too large for my father. It would be too far to the bathroom for him to walk too at night. The actual layout to the main rooms for eating and entertainment seemed too far away from the room available for my father. I saw no way for staff to be able to tell when my father needed help, because of how far the rooms were from the nursing station. The place was a bit big, the pricing a bit confusing and I did not like the shared room situation. My father would hate sharing a room and he would drive his roommate crazy.

Very nice place, friendly staff

We're very pleased with how things are going at Powell Valley. Every single staff member I've interacted with has been friendly, professional, and welcoming. There isn't a mean bone in the place, they're all very nice people! The facility is clean and well kept, and they've really made the whole process of getting my loved ones moved in and settled a pleasant experience.

A nice tour

This community was second on our list. The staff we met were nice and the community was clean. They did offer activities for the residents. This community was just a little higher priced than what we were looking for.

Great Accommodations !!

The staff have really done way more than I expected with the accommodations they have made for my loved one. The residents are lovely and have made my grandmother feel welcomed and comfortable in her new living environment. I would highly recommend this community!!

Best Of The Best!!

The meals offered in this community are very good the presentation and the portions are good. They offer vegetarian options as well, there is such a wide variety of all of the meals. The staff is very nice and the communication between them and families is good. If i ask the directors or the staff a question and they don't know the answer they will find one. I would highly recommend this place the atmosphere is great it feels like you are home.

Nice Community!!

I really enjoyed the lunch the community offered us when we went on our tour. They had a great menu full of many options. The staff was very nice and helped answer our questions. There was no odor to the community. One of the things i wasn't very happy with was the size of the rooms they were very small.

Very nice community!

Powell Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care is well kept and very clean. The staff that offered the tour were very informative and friendly. They offer several activities for the residents to enjoy.

Good Experience So Far

I know my mother is in good hands at the facility. They are taking very good care of her and her needs. It is a nice looking community, they do a very good job with the cleanliness. They have a wonderful staff here, they have been very helpful. She is pleased with the food, they serve nice meals. She is receiving great care here and I would recommend it.

I would rate this community as a 10!!!

My in laws are doing great since moving into Powell Valley. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive to them. The food is good and they offer a wide variety of healthy choices. They are still adjusting so they have not yet started participating in any of the activities offered. This is a clean community and I would recommend it to family and friends.

Beautiful Courtyard Garden

My father is doing very well at this community and everything is going great. This is a very clean community, everything looks nice and well-kept. The staff is very good and very helpful. They were very responsive to my concerns and they are very attentive. There a nice activities offered here. My father likes the food, they serve very nice meals. I like the courtyard garden and the dining area is very nice. They have a variety of residents. It has been a pleasant experience and I would recommend it.

Good place

Spendy but the truth is they all are. Nice people. Some staff excellent, others average. Constant check ins sometimes annoying but necessary for certain people. Would like trips out to go to entertainment for those able to enjoy them. No regrets as yet.

concerned for the employees and the residents

Truly disappointed found out that they have cameras at the facility but nothing is taped to overlook personally canNot see how this would be helpful found out that employees are stealing from employees very concerning considering if they can steal from their father fellow employees that they would still from the residentsWas told it would be at my best interest to get ahold of metalSorry to get a hold of the American Medical Association

Managment is having real problems here. Medication timliness is an issue as well as staff turnover. The management problems trickle down to the residents and make for a disruptive living situation. The staff is not capable and cannot care for residents in a supportive and productive enviornment. Very disappointed.

not getting her prescribed medication on time

At Powell Valley Assisted Living & Memory Care the main problems she had was not getting her prescribed medication on time. The medication made her feel better and they were supposed to be in her room at 8 am and they were not getting there till 10:30 am. The situation did improve after talking to a staff member.

Good respite care!

We used Powell Valley Assisted Living for a brief respite stay for my loved one, and overall I think they did a great job. It's a nice looking, clean facility, and the staff were all very friendly. They did a great job making her feel welcome and introducing her to the community. It's a very nice place!

It's been very positive..

It's been very positive. I think it has been really good. The hard part has been my mothers transition. There is a lack of activities. There's not enough for my mother to do. There is an exercise group that she participates in. She's not into bingo and things like that. I think it would be nice if they had book readings and outdoor activities. The people have been absolutely wonderful. I would recommend this place.

Mom's visit

The people are great and want to please. The surroundings are appealing.--beautiful rose gardens. The food... not a 5 star rating.

It's a really nice place, and they take good care of him there.

It's a really nice place, and they take good care of him there. My husband is happy there, and that's what matters. It's close to me, and that's one of the main reasons I chose them. The only reason they don't get a five is because they are very expensive, but the price goes down if you get a shared room. I would recommend them to others.

I like the organization and the staff..

I like the organization and the staff. My only criticism is the weekly cleaning of my aunt's apartment. It doesn't seem very thorough. Overall, it has been a very good experience. Everyone there seems very nice and caring. They offer activities. I have already recommended it to people I know. The Powell Assisted Living & Memory Care is a really nice community with a nice atmosphere. It has been good.

Everything has been going well

I would recommend the Powell Valley Assisted Living & Memory Care. Everything has been going well. I haven't had any issues with this community. This is a great assisted living facility that offers a clean and friendly environment. The care givers do a good job at taking care of all of the residents. The value is great because you get a wonderful community for a reasonable price. I highly recommend it here.

I am just ecstatic about it.

It going really good, we are really happy. She is going to activities, and doing so much more there. I am just ecstatic about it. The people there, the staff, are super, super nice and sweet. They do little things like when they are taking her to lunch or breakfast, they will fluff her hair up, and my mom just loves the girl that does that. The food is not bad here, it's good or better. They even have a happy hour on Fridays, and they serve beer and wine, and they will have a couple of glasses and it's quite good. They play music on Fridays. It just really is good. She can walk out to the courtyard, and her walking is getting better. It's very clean, and they take good care of the place they are always working on the grounds. They are pretty easy to talk to. It really has gone well for us, I would recommend them.

Great Place for Mom or Dad

Our Mom and Dad were both living at Powell Valley for less than a month and both passed away there. You might expect less because they weren't well known yet, but the whole experience couldn't have been better if it had been family. They were extremely caring, warm, thoughtful, and efficient. I would recommend this place to any and everyone whole heartedly. The food was excellent and superbly presented, the care was very good and lovingly supplied. The environment was clean and updated. The grounds and facility are beautiful and well kept. They have beautiful rose gardens and a courtyard with water features. I would love to be there when I need support.


If that’s the type of facility you need, I think it’s an excellent one. There is enough parking. It’s visually very appealing. It’s very clean, but I’m not the one that lives there. My loved one lives there. My loved one hadn’t said anything good or bad about the food.

Great Experience!

I have no complaints. Overall, they were very friendly, very helpful. After my husband left, I had to go back because I'd forgotten a couple things, and everyone came out to see him and say hi. He was there for respite while I had surgery and I would bring him back no question. When I first went there I thought I needed two months, but when the doctor told me that I needed to extend his stay, Powell Valley was very accommodating with my needs.

Assisted Living and Memory Care

I picked Powell Valley mainly because it has the assisted living and memory care and they accept Medicaid. Those are two big pluses. They have been okay. They haven't been spectacular on the care. My mom is 100% dementia so they first went in to the assisted living and we just moved her to memory care, splitting my parents up. It was very discouraging for us to do that and we're still in the process of making sure that was the right move. In the assisted living there is not a lot of one on one care which I guess that was my fault for not looking into that before hand. Besides that it's been okay. I feel the assisted living part is really clean. I'm not really happy with the cleanliness of the memory care part yet. It's a little bit older and not as updated as the assisted living. I really do like the activities in the memory care. They're trying to get them to be involved.

Very Friendly staff, salt in the food

Extremely friendly and caring staff, first name basis for all residents. I was very impressed with the staff. Very comfortable, modern, clean. Good hands on care. Our only problem was in limiting my Dad's salt intake, I was told the food was not salty. Never succeeded in getting a special low salt diet set up for him during his one month respite stay.

Dad is happy

I just left from visiting my Dad at his new home. About a month ago he needed to move from his independent living facility to one with greater assisted living. He is 94 and he was starting to fall more often and feeling more lonely at night. We found Powell Valley through "A Place For Mom". It has proved to be a great find. In Dad's words they are very friendly and welcoming at his new place. Wen he walks down the hall everyone says hello. There are a bunch of Packer fans some of which have stopped in to discuss the team. He also enjoys sitting out in the courtyard reading, watching the water in the ponds and the people walking by. All of my interactions with the staff have great and they have welcomed my Dad into the community. I am so happy that we found this great community!

I'll take Mom here for lunch and let her see the facility and see what she thinks. It also doesn't have much outdoor walking opportunities.

Newer facility. Well maintained. Good concept of care and felt very comfortable there.

Loved this one. The only 2 drawbacks ...

Loved this one. The only 2 drawbacks were the studio was extremely small (the smallest I've seen yet) and it's a little farther out than I'd like.

From the Community

It all began in the mid 1980’s at a time when seniors were looking for innovative care choices that promoted independence and dignity. Powell Valley identified with this need and became one of the first to fill the gap between independent living and skilled nursing care. As pioneers, we continue to work each day to build a community in which each individual is treated with respect and given the care they need to continue to grow and lead engaging, enriched lives.

Powell Valley Assisted Living opened in 1988 in Gresham on four acres of land. That originally belonged to the Kummel family. Powell Valley founders are descendants of the Kummel family. The family farm as well as their beautiful rose garden was well loved and cared for since the early 1900’s. In memory of the original rose garden; residents and staff now enjoy the Memory Garden. You can still see part of the original home as well as signs of an earlier time in the posts of the gazebo. The tradition of this land is evident in the family feel that has come to define the way of life that has grown here.

Providing the highest level of quality service and care to 150 residents while focusing on the goal that allows seniors to age in place is the driving passion at Powell Valley. In 1997, as the needs of some of the existing residents increased we opened Powell Valley Memory Care Community. This Alzheimer’s facility offers continuity of care and additional healthcare choices for new residents.

Powell Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care Community is managed by CareWise Management, Inc. Powell Valley is also proud to provide 90 jobs to the local community. There is a range of tastefully decorated one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as cozier studio accommodation.
