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 75+ 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 35 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.

Our Mission

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.

A non-profit community guided by service and faith

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.

Leadership

Stefanie Sanborn Health Center Administrator

Joining the Dallas Retirement Village leadership team as the Health Center Administrator in 2023, I developed a love for senior living and helping older adults enhance their lifestyles while working in Independent Living Sales. I received a master’s degree in Aging and Health with a focus on Senior Living Administration in 2021 and worked as an Assistant Health Center Administrator. On the weekends I look forward to playing tennis and biking with my husband, and thoroughly enjoy my workdays spending time and developing relationships with residents, hearing their life’s stories, and becoming part of their extended family.

Tracy Swanborough Assisted Living Administrator

I have been at Dallas Retirement Village since 2011 and overall, in Senior Living for 11 years. As a child I spent many hours at our elderly neighbors’ homes. I suppose some of the draw was their candy dishes that were always full. Later, as a High School student one of my closest friends was 86 years old. From that moment on I began working as a caregiver with an in-home caregiving agency. After college graduation, I moved into activities at an Assisted Living and Memory Care community and eventually into a coordinator position, overseeing the Memory Care. I love senior care because I get to fulfill my lifelong goal of helping people while I also get to be creative. I love Dallas Retirement Village because it is a faith-based nonprofit. I get to live out my faith in my everyday work life… just how senior care should be done.

Kanoe Creech Memory Care Administrator

I graduated from Western Oregon University in 2017 with a degree in Political Science. Throughout college I was involved in student government, which is where I came to have a fondness for administration. After graduating, I bounced around various career fields and ultimately felt that Senior Living was the best fit for me. In July 2022 I joined Dallas Retirement Village as a Resident Care Coordinator for Assisted Living, and then later transitioned to the role of Memory Care Administrator. What I enjoy most in my workdays is getting to know the residents and finding ways to overcome any challenges the day might come about for them.

David Parrett Executive Director

Hired as the Executive Director of Dallas Retirement Village in late 1997, I have been part of this community for more than two decades. Much has changed over the years as we continually seek to meet the needs of our campus and the larger community. Educationally I received my Bachelor of Arts degree and followed that with a master’s degree in business administration. I also hold a Skilled Nursing Home Administrator’s license. Prior to coming to Dallas Retirement Village, I served in administrator positions in senior retirement settings as well as acute hospital administrator, all in the Orange and San Diego counties of southern California. My wife and I have two adult children and a couple of grandchildren. A few of my favorite hobbies include camping, hiking, and photography. We love Oregon and plan to remain here after retirement. One of the main things that drew me to Dallas Retirement Village was our faith-based mission and values. I am very gratified that in my time here we have been able to continue to provide professional, friendly, and comfortable community that our residents call home. In the future I plan to continue to fulfill our mission of service and look for the next opportunity to expand the services and meet the needs for Dallas Retirement Village.
