Senior Living Community in Sherwood, Ore. to Open 20 New Assisted Living Units
McMinnville, Ore., October 14, 2019 –The Springs Living announced that Sara Sievers has been promoted to executive director of its senior community in Sherwood, Ore., The Springs at Sherwood. In this role, Sievers will oversee all aspects of the senior living community, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care.
The announcement comes as the company prepares to expand the community with 20 additional assisted living apartments opening this month and 73 new independent living apartments scheduled to open in Spring 2020.
The senior living community, located in the heart of Old Town Sherwood, will offer a variety of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and will feature on-site amenities that promote an active lifestyle experience, such as a fitness center, theater, beauty salon, pub and multiple dining venues. The sales center offers virtual tours, allowing prospective residents to visually experience the colors, architectural details, and flow of the community’s expansion.
“There is always something to do in Sherwood with its historic downtown and Center for the Arts,” said Sievers. “With the town’s ongoing increase in population, we recognized the need to grow our community so additional seniors can call Sherwood home.”
Sievers recently completed the company’s Executive Director in Training (EDiT) program, a requirement for those applying to an executive director position at a Springs community. The goal of the program is to prepare high-potential employees to lead one of the 17 Springs communities in Oregon and Montana. Executive directors are responsible for all operational elements of a community, including overseeing the staff and serving the residents and their families. As a program that is customized to each participating individual’s strengths, EDiT was built out of the company’s “quality of you” philosophy. This ensures that each person leading a Springs community is well prepared to uphold the company’s high standards for serving its residents, exemplifying its value based culture, and managing its daily operations.
“Having recently completed our Executive Director in Training program, Sara is well equipped to lead our community in Sherwood,” said Fee Stubblefield, Founder & CEO of The Springs Living. “As we prepare to open the new independent living apartments and additional assisted living units in Sherwood, Sara will build on our workplace culture that empowers our employees to do the right thing.”
Previously, Sievers worked as the resident relations manager at The Springs at Clackamas Woods in Milwaukie, Ore. where she was responsible in supporting the day-to-day lifestyle needs of 140 residents in independent living. Sievers has worked in senior living for over nine years and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in human development from Warner Pacific University in Portland, Ore.
