Emerson House residents enjoy activities for body, mind and spirit including outings, walks around the neighborhood, exercise, games, discussions, gardening, art, music, pet visits and social events to name just a few. A partnership with Urban Excursions allows residents to go on bus outings, including lunch stops, around Portland and beyond. Please see our events tab for current activity calendars as well as information about other Special Events at Emerson House.
Optional primary care provider services provided by Housecall Providers, Elderplace and Kaiser Permanente’s Primary Care at Home, monthly visits by Foot Care 4 U and Smiles All Around, massage services provided by Ridgeline Clinic and an in-house beauty/barber shop are among the many services we offer to address special care needs and provide pampering.
Our holistic approach to care involves the person, their family and the Emerson House team. Family members are encouraged to visit regularly and participate in the activities and experiences of Emerson House. Family input, whether provided informally during conversations with staff or at our quarterly care planning conferences, is an important way that we can support both our residents and their families. A monthly family support group, special seminars and holiday gatherings offer ongoing ways Emerson House families can connect with each other.
