Independent Living

Independent Living, which is offered on the Hearthstone at Murrayhill campus, is for those who are looking for a simpler lifestyle — so your everyday life can be truly independent. Imagine a life free from day-to-day chores! Finally, you can do what you love, rather than what needs to be done.

At Hearthstone, daily chores are someone else’s responsibility.

  • No more housekeeping.
  • No more yard work.
  • No more home maintenance or repair.
  • No more worrying about buying groceries,
    planning and preparing meals,
    or kitchen clean-up.

Independent living at Hearthstone at Murrayhill also offers support when you need it. Every resident receives a personal call button, medication aides and caregivers work on site around-the-clock, and a full-time nurse is either on site or available on call when an urgent need arises.

At Hearthstone at Murrayhill you have the opportunity to socialize with other residents, staff and visitors every day: during meals, while exercising, while reading the newspaper, playing games, or just “people-watching.” Even if you’re not a social butterfly, daily contact with other people can help keep you sharp – both mentally and physically.

Each day at Hearthstone at Murrayhill offers you a variety of activities – and you don’t have to plan, organize, drive, or do the clean-up. You can choose to attend a recital, play Bingo, go on a scenic drive, host your family for a special meal, or take advantage of whatever else is going on.

At Hearthstone we make it easy for you to be as active as you want to be.

And then there’s the safety net.

One of the most common reasons people move to Hearthstone Senior Living is because of our safe environment and supportive services. You no longer have to worry about climbing stairs or ladders, stepping in and out of the tub, opening a difficult jar or container, or getting help if you fall or have an accident.

  • Every Hearthstone resident receives
    a personal call button.
  • Medication aides and caregivers work on site
    and are available to you around-the-clock.
  • A full-time nurse is either on site or available
    on call when an urgent need arises.

Because Hearthstone at Murrayhill’s Independent Living community is licensed by the State of Oregon as a Residential Care Facility (RCF), we are able to provide caregiving services to our independent residents on a fee for service basis. This offers our residents a level of flexibility not often found in independent retirement communities.

“I was sitting in the warm sunshine in the Hearthstone courtyard yesterday, and said to myself ‘This is Heaven!’”
