Consider senior center living options for retiring parents

If your parents do not wish to live in the home you purchased off of the Beaverton, OR real estate market, but want to reside close by, consider senior center communities as an option. These living situations are specially designed to provide for aging parents, while maximizing social and mobility opportunities.
