A bright past. A vibrant future.
In 1947, members of three local churches rented a big yellow house in Dallas, Oregon, to serve as a care center for aging adults, calling it “Dallas Home for the Aged”. Over the years, we continually grew and evolved in response to demand for senior housing.
- 1950s – Added two new wings, accommodating a total of 72 residents.
- Mid-1970s – Grew to 116 licensed nursing care beds.
- 1985 – Opened an independent living apartment complex—paving the way for the name change to Dallas Retirement Village.
- 1996 – Added 45 assisted living apartments.
- 1997 – Completed the first craftsman-quality homes, with a total of 45 of these residences built over the next 12 years.
- 2004 – Added an innovative Health Center offering intermediate and skilled nursing care, a Memory Care Center and rehabilitation therapies.
- 2017 – Opened the new Lodge Residences and Clubhouse—just in time for our 70th anniversary.
Today, Dallas Retirement Village is an active, flourishing 30-acre neighborhood, where residents are met on their level of living. We look forward to continued innovation as we meet the evolving demands for senior living in the years to come.
Dallas Retirement Village covers the spectrum.
Clean, crisp and conveniently located close to it all.
Located about 20 minutes west of Salem and in close proximity of other large Oregon cities, Dallas offers a prime geographical location for retirees. Location is a big part of what makes our senior living community so attractive.
Our neighborly small-town setting provides all the comforts and conveniences you need and want.
A community built on faith and service.
Staying true to our roots as a charitable mission to serve the needs of area seniors, Dallas Retirement Village remains a not-for-profit community. The spiritual soundness of our community continues to draw people of all faiths and religions—enriching their lives and providing confidence for the future.
“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.”
It is Dallas Retirement Village’s faith-based, resident-centered approach that separates us from corporate-owned communities—and guides us as we continue building a future while honoring the past.
- A faith-based heritage, welcoming all.
