FAQs About Hearthstone

What are my living options at Hearthstone Senior Living?

Independent Living.  For those who are completely independent but prefer to live in a supportive environment where household maintenance and housekeeping chores are taken care of, meals are provided, and social activities are available throughout the day, we offer a vibrant independent community on our Hearthstone at Murrayhill campus. View our Independent Living services and amenities.

Independent Living with Residential Care Services. Unlike other independent retirement communities, Hearthstone at Murrayhill is licensed by the state to provide caregiving services as needed to its independent residents. This gives you the option to remain in your independent living apartment even though you may have some short-term — or long-term — caregiving needs. View our Independent Living services and amenities.

Assisted Living.  Both Hearthstone locations offer a range of caregiving services for those who require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as medication management, shower assistance, dressing or toileting support, reminders, or escort services. View our Assisted Living services and amenities.

Memory Care.  Hearthstone at Murrayhill has a specially-designed residential memory care community — called Anna’s Place — on a  campus that includes Independent Living and Assisted Living communities. Anna’s Place serves individuals whose memory loss — caused by stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia — requires a much higher level of support and a smaller, more secure, and less confusing living environment. Anna’s Place managers and staff are specially trained and selected for their exceptional ability to serve each person with love, respect and integrity. View Anna’s Place services and amenities.

Short Stays.  Both Hearthstone communities offer the option of short stays for those who need some extra time to recover from surgery or an accident, or simply want to “test the waters” before making a permanent transition to Assisted Living. For these reasons and more, Hearthstone of Beaverton offers fully-furnished Short Stay apartments for those who can use some extra support for two weeks or longer. Hearthstone at Murrayhill offers the same option on a month-to-month basis. View our Short Stay services and amenities.

Is there a wait list?

Yes, each Hearthstone community maintains its own wait list. When an apartment becomes available, we offer that apartment to people based on their chronological position on the wait list. If you decline an apartment offered to you, you retain your same chronological position on the wait list. If you are considering a move to Hearthstone Senior Living, you may want to keep your options open by getting on our wait lists by contacting:

What is the difference between Independent Living, Assisted Living and Nursing Homes?

Hearthstone at Murrayhill’s Independent Living community is designed for seniors over the age of 55. There are activities planned for the members of the community as well as minimal assistance with apartment work or other maintenance issues. Residents maintain as much independence as possible and are still able to perform all of the activities of daily living. View our Independent Living services and amenities.

Assisted Living is available at Hearthstone of Beaverton (on Hart Road) and Hearthstone at Murrayhill (on Davies Road). Assisted Living residents are usually seniors who have had a slight decline in health in some way and need assistance performing one or more activities of daily living (ADLs). Seniors who would like to live in a social environment with little responsibilities and a place where quality care is easily accessible may wish to Schedule A Tour of Hearthstone Senior Living. View our Assisted Living services and amenities.

Nursing homes are for older adults who require care around the clock at and at a much higher level than those who reside in an Assisted Living community. Nursing homes provide staff nurses 24 hours a day. Hearthstone Senior Living provides Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care (available at our Hearthstone of Beaverton location), however we are not a nursing home.
