The Esther at Riverbend Assisted Living

Redefining Assisted Living in Eugene-Springfield

Experience exceptional assisted living at The Esther at Riverbend in Springfield, OR. Our warm and welcoming community will reflect the small town feel of the Eugene-Springfield area while providing the warmth, comfort, and distinctly northwest style Oregonian senior’s desire. The modern farmhouse design is evident in the vast array of common areas including The 1923 Bistro, The Drake Club Room, Timber View Library, Wild Rose Tea Room, and our Dining Room, The Gregory. The Esther will boast many distinguishing features including common areas to gather on every floor, so no matter where your home is, you’re only steps away from meeting with friends. Multiple floor plan options are available to meet a variety of budgets and personal preferences.

The Esther at Riverbend Assisted Living

At The Esther, we provide our assisted living residents with the familiar comforts of home in their own senior living apartment. The community is fully equipped with indoor and outdoor common areas so our residents have the ability to enjoy the social aspects of senior living, but still have the dignity of privacy in their private senior-supported apartment. Along with luxurious amenities, residents have daily access to an array of activities, events and classes to keep them engaged and stimulated. Our on-site outdoor gardens and walking paths provide an inviting and safe environment for residents to enjoy visiting and residing in our assisted living community. The seniors of Springfield will enjoy a safe environment that provides daily assistance, sophisticated dining with health-conscious options, and a social life that many seniors thought they couldn't have again.

We encourage family and friend involvement by inviting them to join our activities during visits. We can even provide a private space to host special events such as birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, movie nights, and live musical entertainment. Special events can feel extra special to your senior loved one at our community!

Senior living campus

The Esther at Riverbend Assisted Living in Springfield was carefully planned and designed with the aging process in mind. If our residents require specialty care for memory loss, we have The Rawlin at Riverbend Memory Care, which is part of the ONELIFE family, available next door. We assist families with the transition of their loved one into our sister memory care community that is patient, kind and engaging for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Neither community requires long-term leases, only month-to-month residency agreements.
