Mary Alva's Senior Class Adult Foster Care

Senior Class Adult Foster Care

“It’s a home, not an assisted living facility”

Your loved one is well cared for and safe – Senior care in a homelike setting – Family and friends are always welcome

Imagine the feeling of knowing your loved one is well cared for and safe. That is the confidence you will have when your loved one lives at Mary Alva’s Senior Class Adult Foster Care in The Dalles, Oregon. We’ve created two beautiful homes with plenty of extra warmth and comfort thrown in and where family and friends are warmly welcomed.

Mary worked in healthcare for 24 years in the Seattle area before moving to The Dalles and opening two adult foster care homes in 2000. Her many years of experience in healthcare have been invaluable in providing care to the residents as well as providing leadership and training for her staff.

Quality Senior Care in a Homelike Setting

Mary and her staff are able to meet the needs of seniors with a variety of physical conditions as well as those with dementia. In many cases, residents are able to receive a higher level of care than is available at assisted living facilities. And many are happier in a homelike setting than in an institutional environment. We have fully-powered lifts and are able to care for those who can no longer walk or bear weight.

Mary is actively involved on a day-to-day basis in the care of the residents and in communicating with family members and those on the professional care team. You will have Mary’s cell phone number and will be encouraged to call her directly with any concerns you have. She is available immediately to care for unexpected changes or emergencies. She always contacts the family to discuss their wishes involving care.

Mary’s senior care homes are licensed by the State of Oregon. The resident managers live on-site, further creating a homelike environment. They each have at least two years of years of full time experience caring for the elderly in a long-term care setting and complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education each year.

Mary Alva and her staff provide senior care in a residential home – not a assisted living facility. It’s a place to call home.
