Grants Pass, Oregon Retirement Community
A Campus Community
Emeritus at The Springs Senior Living Campus is set on 25 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, adjacent to the wild and scenic Rogue River. Our quiet park-like setting in a residential area of Grants Pass features three main buildings:
- Emeritus at Spring Meadow Retirement, a graciously appointed spacious community with high ceilings and walls of windows that frame spectacular views of the nearby mountains and flood the community with natural light.
- Emeritus at Spring Village Assisted Living, with 70 retirement apartments, as well as 12 independent cottages located in a neighborhood setting, with its own street, pathways – even mailboxes!
- Emeritus at Spring Pointe memory care, offering four individual neighborhood communities, each with 14 private studio-style apartments and two lovely secured courtyards. Emeritus at Spring Pointe is considered one of the best memory care communities in Southern Oregon.
All of our buildings are interconnected with paved pathways, making it easy for residents to take full advantage of our “continuous senior living community.” This unique continuing care environment also allows residents to easily transition from one care level to the next – and allows couples to remain on the same campus together, even if one can live independently, but the other requires assisted living or memory care.
The Perfect Location
Our campus is located just across the legendary Rogue River from downtown Grants Pass – a large town of 34,000 residents surrounded by mountains and ancient forests. Grants Pass is a destination for many people wishing to experience all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer – including our own residents. In fact, with two buses and a van, we are able to take residents on all kinds of outings – to Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, to the Wildlife Safari in Winston, to Redwood National Park and Crater Lake National Park – easy day trips – and even adventures to the Oregon Coast, for lunch, shopping and sight-seeing.
Right in our own neighborhood are all kinds of shops and stores, from Albertson’s and Wal-Mart to antique stores, specialty shops and art galleries located in our historic downtown. We are also fortunate to have a wide variety of restaurants in the immediate area, and the largest Doctor’s Park – Grants Pass Medical Clinic – as well as Three Rivers Community Hospital are just a half-mile away.
A Wonderful Selection
From independent living through memory care, our continuous senior living community enables residents to remain right here, on our campus – in familiar surroundings – should they need additional services. We offer:
For retirement: Emeritus at Spring Meadow:
Our main three-story community offers studios, deluxe studios, and standard and deluxe one- and two-bedroom senior apartments. Our spacious and bright apartments feature high ceilings that flood each room with natural light; kitchenettes with refrigerator, microwave, ample cabinets and stainless steel sinks; and handicapped-accessible bathrooms. Built with safety in mind, the apartments include emergency call systems in each room.
Emeritus at Spring Meadow common areas: Glorious! Spectacular! Elegant! These are just a few words that visitors and residents use to describe Spring Meadow. From an airy loft with stone fireplace and unique artist gallery – home to artwork created by our own residents – to the Creation Room, which is equipped with a huge quilting machine, our building is like none other! We have a wonderful resident-run gift shop, several lounges with televisions, a game room, Coca-Cola vintage 1950s ice cream parlor, as well as our grand dining room – the focal point of our community. Just off to its side is our billiards room and hardwood dance floor. A wrap-around porch with bistro provides a relaxing place for residents to enjoy peaceful afternoons and evenings, chatting, sharing a glass of wine or enjoying a barbeque.
For assisted living: Emeritus at Spring Village:
Our retirement community offers 52 studios and 18 one-bedroom senior apartments, each with a kitchenette featuring a two-stage refrigerator, granite countertops, stainless steel sink and handicapped-accessible bathrooms. Some have vaulted ceilings and all are individually temperature controlled. Residents are also given emergency call pendants, worn around the neck, which they can activate anywhere in the building – even just outside – should they need assistance.
We also offer 12 1,230-square-foot deluxe cottages, each with two full bedrooms, kitchen with full-sized appliances, fireplace, washer/dryer, wall-to-wall carpeting and ceramic tile in the bath(s) and kitchen, and a huge walk-in closet in the master bedroom. A workshop is attached to the garage. And like our entire campus, all cottages have spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and take full advantage of Oregon’s beautiful natural light.
Emeritus at Spring Village common areas: Our dining room, located in the main building, is truly a gem – two-story high ceilings with huge windows looking out onto the nearby mountains, with a fireside loft overlooking the dining area; a Coca-Cola ice cream parlor; billiards room with new pool table; and whirlpool spa – in fact, all three communities feature a spa and beauty salon!
For memory care: Emeritus at Spring Pointe:
Our memory care community features 56 private studio-style apartments, some with private bathrooms. The building is divided into four neighborhoods with 14 apartments each. Each neighborhood creates a smaller, more intimate community – important for residents with memory impairments. Residents can stroll from neighborhood to neighborhood – our building is laid out in a circle, with two internal courtyards, where residents can safely enjoy the out-of-doors. Each neighborhood also has its own common areas, and the building itself has one large space where we often have entertainment, family dinners and other large events. Like all our buildings, Emeritus at Spring Pointe also features high ceilings and lots of natural light. Four “life stations” – a general store, ladies boutique, indoor greenhouse and workshop – enable residents to enjoy activities from their past.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Two in-home care agencies have their offices right here, at Emeritus at Spring Meadows. Our residents can choose their therapists, who will work with them in their own apartments. Of course, they are also welcome to bring in any other healthcare providers they may have used in the past. In fact, if any of our assisted living residents have a caregiver they feel comfortable with, we welcome that person to provide additional support as needed. Hospice providers also frequent our community – and Emeritus at Spring Village and Emeritus at Spring Pointe benefit from a visiting physician, who makes “house calls” each week. A nurse podiatrist and dental hygienist serve all three buildings on scheduled days. In addition, we provide transportation to doctors’ appointments; a staff person always accompanies our memory care residents.
Emeritus at The Springs Senior Living Campus is staffed by three highly educated and experienced executive directors. We also have a Memory Care Director who oversees our Emeritus Join Their Journey program, as well as two-full time highly competent registered nurses, 24-hour med techs and many other caregivers.
We pride ourselves on longevity; many staff members have been here for more than 10 years. They stay for one key reason; their commitment to our family of residents. Visitors often tell us that they can see how much our staff cares about residents. For example, recently we found out about an older gentleman who had cancer, but lived on his own in a small trailer on the Oregon Coast. He was literally marooned there. So our staff drove out to his home, loaded up his belongings and brought him here to his new home. He told us that we saved his life. Now, he’s getting the care and medical attention he needs and is doing great!
Our Emeritus at sSpring Pointe staff works extremely well together – they are all trained in dementia care and are experts in knowing how to redirect and validate our residents’ feelings and concerns. They do whatever it takes to help residents get the most out of their day – for instance, bringing in their pets to visit and making sure they are engaged in our daily activities.
