About UsGreat things often start from small beginnings. Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living are 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 spread for her compassion and care, the demands for her services grew very quickly. Soon she was able to purchase a large house in Wood Village, Oregon and converted it into her first senior care community.
Prestige grew quickly in those early years and began seeking out ways to improve care, setting the stage for innovation. More important though, Prestige began to develop a core value system of respect, integrity, commitment and trust that serves as the bedrock of every Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living community.
Sarah’s legacy lives on through Prestige Care and Prestige Senior Living. By bringing family home together and purchasing additional homes, her grandsons, Harold and Dr. Rick Delamarter along with their partner Greg Vislocky, now own Prestige.
