A Different Kind of Caring
A few differences you’ll notice when you walk in the door: When someone moves to Evergreen, we really mean it when we say: this is their home. When our building opened, all our furniture was beautifully coordinated But we soon found appearances didn’t mean as much to our residents as the comfort of a favorite chair. So over time with our help, people have moved a few pieces of their own preferred furniture into our common areas. The result is more like someone’s living room than a formal hotel lobby. Our residents love being able to settle by the fireplace or in the sunroom in surroundings that feel homey and familiar, and we’re happy that they have a choice in their surroundings.
At Evergreen, we think the right to make choices, good or bad, is a fundamental human right that doesn’t or shouldn’t stop because one reaches a certain age or develops physical and/or cognitive limitations. We believe each person should have the right to participate to the fullest extent they are able in decisions surrounding their care and how they go about their day.
As a residential care facility, we serve people with a spectrum of needs. Some of our residents rely on us only for housing and meals, coming and going freely on their own. Others need assistance with the tasks of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and grooming. For many others we are able to provide much of the same healthcare as a skilled nursing facility, but in a much more homelike environment. Our staff is specially trained on cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease, and monthly staff trainings ensure we can safely and effectively meet all of our residents’ care needs.
A Down Home Community
Evergreen Court is located in Molalla, 30 miles southeast of Portland, a small down home community with a rich history. View map and driving directions. The city acquired its name from a small, indigenous Native American tribe called the Molalla. Molalla is perhaps best known as the home of the Molalla Buckaroo, a four day rodeo the week of July 4th. The event draws over 50,000 people to this friendly town of just over 5,700. Evergreen Court’s location – a few blocks from downtown Molalla with its shops and restaurants and directly across the street from the Molalla Senior Center – offers amply opportunity for recreation as does our in-house activity program.
