Situated along the banks of the Willamette River in a scenic area of Eugene, OR, Waterford Grand is a stunningly beautiful retirement community with views of freshwater estuaries, expansive green areas and gorgeous landscaping.
Waterford Grand is Eugene’s finest senior living community. Not far from the University of Oregon and the iconic 5th Street Public Market, Waterford Grand might just be the perfect location for vibrant senior living.
A full range of senior lifestyles are available, so if more support is ever needed, there’s no need to move to another community. And in the event a spouse or partner needs different care, it’s right here, keeping couples close.
With more time, a little support and a lot of pampering, residents can live fully and happily while enjoying everything the community (and a great Eugene location near Jasper and Malabon) has to offer.
Life at Waterford Grand is like a vacation, only better, because here, an array of luxuries, activities, services, amenities and supportive assistance are part of life — Every. Single. Day. What’s not part of every day: cooking, cleaning and home maintenance!
The assisted living lifestyle offers the extra support that often means The Difference Between Living and Living Well. From assistance with activities of daily living like dressing and grooming to gentle medication reminders, our respectful staff works with each resident to customize daily schedules based on individual preferences and needs. Put simply, residents at Waterford Grand enjoy all the benefits of independence with as little or as much help as needed.
Here your daily itinerary is yours to create. We help expand the options by offering a grand setting (stunning river views included), spacious apartments, an array of luxury amenities like a spa and indoor pool, diverse programs, multiple dining venues, gorgeous fountains on the back patio, and a host of convenient services provided by a team dedicated to making the retirement experience spectacular.
Discover worry-free living that inspires new activities, new opportunities, new purpose and new thinking. So, go ahead and take up a new hobby. Make new friends. Enjoy happy hours around the fire pit on our outdoor gathering area. Get fit by trying a new exercise class in a state-of-the-art fitness center. Take a class at the University of Oregon (or cheer on the Ducks at a football game). Take a peaceful (or group) river walk. Or take advantage of all the things our highly desired senior living community in Eugene has to offer … college campus, museums, restaurants, boutiques, cultural attractions, farmers markets, hiking and golf.
Whatever is personally appealing, there are countless opportunities to take advantage of all the social and wellness benefits that come with supportive community living. And when a day of doing nothing at all is called for, a thoughtfully designed studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment provides the perfect backdrop for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Supportive assisted living in Eugene at Waterford Grand is complemented by a comfortable, vibrant environment, including spacious residences that feature kitchenettes and full bathrooms.
Specialized memory care programming and support from an experienced team trained to understand all stages of memory loss help residents experience more meaningful moments and more fulfilling days.
Several years of best-practices research and consultations with families whose lives have been touched by Alzheimer’s and dementia went into creating memory care at Waterford Grand and our exclusive Memory Care Program, Mosaic. While it is architecturally and operationally innovative, our memory care wing is intimate and welcoming with the living and dining room areas at the center. Find many inviting common areas, an open kitchen and light airy dining areas that provide beautiful views of lush landscaping and the scenic Willamette River. Comfortable nooks and sitting areas offer opportunities to visit with family and relax. Apartments are spacious and feature private and shared options.
Our wellness and life-enrichment teams work together to ensure residents stay connected and engaged while enjoying a variety of programs specially designed to enhance life for those living with memory issues.
What truly sets us apart is that it’s a community where residents, family and care partners feel valued, purposeful and loved. Residents and their families are part of our family. They are embraced and involved in all decisions and in all aspects of care. Because we are small, we have the time to get to know residents personally — their routines, interests, preferences, passions and joys.
Respite care — or short-term stays — is a wonderful option for those caring for aging loved ones who may be going on vacation or who may simply need a temporary respite from caregiving.
The benefits of respite stays are many. For caregivers, respite stays can prevent exhaustion and caregiver burnout. Respite stays benefit loved ones by providing them with variety, stimulation and a welcome change of routine. Respite stays are also an option for anyone who could benefit from more recovery time after surgery or other medical procedures.

Waterford Grand … our difference.
A feeling of home. A robust social calendar filled with activities and entertainment. Programs that invigorate and stimulate. Awe-inspiring amenities. Personalized support that sometimes means knowing whether you’re a Duck or a Beaver fan and other times means lending a helping hand or a compassionate ear.
With a focus on preserving — and enhancing — independence, there is every opportunity to live grand at Waterford Grand.
But sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference. A warm greeting delivered with a smile. Listening with interest and enthusiasm. Anticipating needs and responding appropriately. Celebrating individuality. Respecting differences.
It’s all here. But don’t take our word for it…
Our residents weigh in.
Whatever it is you consider important to create a great life, the Waterford Grand staff will bust their buttons to help you make it happen. That’s the icing on the cake.
