Great things often start from small beginnings. Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living are no exception. Founded in 1985, our origins begin with the legacy of Sarah Delamarter, a pioneer in Oregon's long-term care industry. Sarah first began using her nursing skills to care for seniors in her home back in 1946 as a means to support her family. As Sarah’s reputation spread for her compassion and care, the demands for her services grew very quickly. Soon she was able to purchase a large house in Wood Village, Oregon and converted it into her first senior care community. Prestige grew quickly in those early years and began seeking out ways to improve care, setting the stage for innovation. More important though, Prestige began to develop a core value system of respect, integrity, commitment and trust that serves as the bedrock of every Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living community. Sarah’s legacy lives on through Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living. By bringing family home together and purchasing additional homes, her grandsons, Harold and Dr. Rick Delamarter along with their partner Greg Vislocky, now own Prestige. At Prestige, our promise is to personally touch lives every day. It is a philosophy of caring based on core values that are at the center of all we do. RESPECT Every person is a unique individual made in the image of our Creator and inherently deserving of our respect. Our care is based on a foundation of respect both for our residents and their families and for ourselves as individuals. No matter how we live or what we believe, we all need and deserve the respect of those around us. INTEGRITY Each of our actions will be driven by our core values, no matter the circumstances. Our care is based on a foundation of truth and honor. We believe in doing the right thing; acting in the best interests of our residents. COMMITMENT Our behavior results from our passion for the completion of our individual special purpose in the world. We serve others because it is our calling. We believe it is our privilege and honor to provide senior services and an obligation that we take very seriously. TRUST Character is of such high value to us that our word and our actions will always be true. We know that trust must be earned, so we strive every day to act in ways deserving of yours. It is our promise that we will care for your loved ones as if they were our own.
