About Prestige Care
About Prestige Care, Inc. and
Prestige Senior Living
Great things often start from small beginnings. Prestige Care is no exception. Founded in 1985, our origins begin with the legacy of Sarah Delamarter, a pioneer in Oregon’s long-term care industry. Sarah first began using her nursing skills to care for seniors in her home back in 1946 as a means to support her family. As Sarah’s reputation for compassion and care spread, the demands for her services grew very quickly.
SARAH’S LEGACY LIVES ON THROUGH PRESTIGE
Sarah’s grandsons, Harold and Dr. Rick Delamarter along with their partner Greg Vislocky, now own Prestige. Each day they strive to build on her legacy of bringing family communities together and expanding the number of individuals the organization serves.
Today, Prestige Senior Living is part of a complete senior care organization which includes independent living communities, assisted living, memory care, as well as rehabilitation and post-acute care. Residents at our communities are not just people we serve, but valued and appreciated members of our Prestige family.
