LifeMinded is an approach we’ve practiced since we opened in 1986. It is also what distinguishes us from other senior living communities in the area. LifeMinded promotes the benefits of “engaged living,” using special, proven techniques and practices designed for seniors based on the “Seven Dimensions of Wellness” model created by the International Council on Active Aging®. Our LifeMinded approach helps every Willamette Oaks resident create their own personalized program for living a full, satisfying and active life—often a more active life—regardless of their age. Retirement living as it was meant to be lived, full of life. Read more about LifeMinded here.
