So here’s the deal. We look at life as a partnership. To get the most out of life, you have responsibilities to yourself and to others. What you are capable of gets bigger, the broader your network. The scope of your life expands with the other lives you touch. Yes, DEFINITELY sometimes it’s work, sometimes it’s play – all of it is growth.
Rose Villa is about the power of community. We really do think the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Even more important, you never know exactly how it’s going to turn out! Life is exciting. And we are IN IT 100%.
Our partnership with you means you can customize the home you live in, use our large and varied number of gathering spaces to pursue your interests and passions, partake in any of the wide array of classes, seminars, performances, or workshops you like, simply spend time in your garden plot in our two-acre community garden, or hang out on our rooftop deck drinking coffee and reading….we’ve designed our community to support the life you want to live, whatever it may be.
And your partnership with us means we expect you to really bring it! An honest all-in attitude, a collaborative approach, genuine curiosity and respect. This is what makes our community something special. It makes it a place you will find true friends, colleagues, kindred spirits, and fellow daredevils.
Who wouldn’t want a full, rich, authentic life?

Rose Villa Pledge to Asian American-Pacific Islanders
As a community of seniors, Rose Villa stands in solidarity with our AAPI (Asian American-Pacific Islander) residents against the centuries old hate and violence that has smoldered unseen, but most recently ignited by the xenophobic labeling of the COVID pandemic. As an extended family of residents and employees, we join together to insure a safe and welcoming space for all to live and work within a diverse and inclusive set of values and principles. As an institution with deep roots in the Portland area, we commit to protect, defend and work alongside the AAPI community as we directly confront the violence and racism unleashed by this fear.
