Frequently Asked Questions

The warmth of a fireplace at Timberhill Place, in Corvallis, Oregon.

What is assisted living and is it the right option for me?

Assisted living is a long-term care option for seniors who don’t wish to or cannot live independently in a house or retirement community, but who do not need the extensive medical care provided by a nursing home or hospital.

At Timberhill Place, we help our residents live as independently as possible by providing services like prepared meals, transportation and basic housekeeping. (See our Included Services.) In addition, some of our residents may need assistance with personal hygiene, eating, dressing and undressing, toileting or medications. These personal support services are provided as needed, for an additional cost per month, so you can stay as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Emergency pull cords are located in each apartment. We ask that you use these in the case of emergency or to obtain assistance for personal care needs. Pulling the cord activates an audible call to the caregiver staff members.
