The Stafford - Lake Oswego Retirement Community

Independent Living

The Stafford Retirement Community, located near Portland in gorgeous Lake Oswego, Oregon offers boutique-style senior independent living. Designed as a destination resort, it offers a full complement of services at a level that will satisfy the most discerning of patrons. Concierge services, a robust wellness program, a full-service day spa, private drivers, and our Northwest fresh "farm-to-fork" cuisine will relax and inspire you.

We're all about enjoying retirement. In fact, we have found that after moving in and getting settled, many of our residents say they wish they had moved in sooner.

That's because independent living the Avamere way is all about you.

Enjoy your hobbies, discover a new passion, make friends, and become part of our Avamere family in an active, vibrant independent living community. Let us handle the small, everyday details like housekeeping and maintenance while you make the most of every moment.

When it comes to senior independent living, Oregon families know their loved ones will enjoy life at the Stafford Retirement Community. Located near a par-three golf course, several churches, walking paths, and an off-leash dog park, we strive to offer you a comfortable and stress-free senior living environment.
