Independent Living

As a Life Plan community, our Independent Living neighborhoods at Friendsview are the heart of our campus. Residents choose Friendsview for a wide variety of reasons, but everyone here gets to enjoy living as part of a vibrant, engaged community of senior adults who get up excited every day to see what life has to offer.

Now we have room for even more friends

For years, Friendsview has enjoyed an incredible amount of interest from prospective residents—often leading to a multi-year wait list for openings. That’s why we decided it was time for a major expansion that includes 124 new independent homes between two neighborhoods.

Our new Sutton Terrace neighborhood is now open and welcoming new residents! If you would like to learn more about our expansion and the community here at Friendsview, please request a brochure below, or contact us to speak directly to a team member.

I chose Creekside because of its proximity to so many activities. And I love my full view of Mt. Chehalem and Hess Creek canyon from my large living and bedroom windows.
