About our retirement community in Dallas, Oregon
Continuing our mission to serve seniors in the Dallas, Oregon area
More than a beautiful 30-acre senior living community, Dallas Retirement Village represents a decades-long commitment to seniors in the Dallas, Oregon area. It all started in 1947 when members of three local churches rented a big, yellow house to serve as a care center for aging adults. Over the years, we continually grew and evolved in response to the demand for senior housing.
Today, Dallas Retirement Village is a thriving Life Plan Community offering a full range of options to more than 400 residents. This includes independent living Garden Homes and apartments, as well as high-quality, on-site health care services: assisted living, memory care, long- and short-term nursing care, and rehabilitation services.
Part of local family stories for 70+ years
Dallas Retirement Village has family connections that span several generations. In fact, a number of our current residents have fond memories of parents, aunts, and uncles who lived here. This on-going connection demonstrates a level of trust that can only be earned by years of exceptional service.
DRV has always felt like my home away from home. My parents were here for several years, and I visited them almost every day. Because of this, I really got to know most of the staff; so after they passed away, and my turn came to find a retirement place–I just came back home! Wonderful staff, fun activities, good food, and beautiful surroundings. What’s not to like?!
Local staff brings love and support to residents
As one of Polk County’s largest employers, Dallas Retirement Village is a place where employees are truly part of our community. In fact, many of our 300+ employees build fulfilling careers with us that span 5, 10, or even more than 25 years! Along the way, residents enjoy building warm relationships with employees. That’s why we make it a commitment to invest in employees through programs including fully paid Certified Nurse Assistant classes, scholarships for continuing education, competitive benefits, and more.
Volunteers add to the community spirit
Our unique connection to the surrounding Dallas area shines through in the dedication of our volunteers. Each year, more than 100 volunteers donate thousands of hours sharing their time, talents, and passions with residents.
We demonstrate Christ’s love by providing a continuum of quality services and care to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our residents with dignity and respect.
Staying true to our roots, Dallas Retirement Village remains a non-profit retirement community with a charitable mission to serve the needs of area seniors. This faith-based mission separates us from corporate-owned communities. We direct all profits toward continual enhancements for residents, not for the financial gain of an out-of-town corporate owner. Plus, the spiritual soundness of our community continues to draw in people of all faiths and religions.
