At Willamette Lutheran Retirement Community, we have a variety of apartments to fit your needs.

From studios, to one-bedroom apartments, to our spacious two-bedroom cottages — we have something for everyone.

WLRC is situated on 42 private, peaceful, and carefully tended acres on a North Keizer bluff. In a park-like setting, where wildlife is still visible, we offer acres of beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by fruit trees, berry bushes, grapevines, a variety of roses and other flowers for you to enjoy, and private gardens for your use, and everything is reachable by paved walking trails.

Yet, with all this privacy and peace, and the feeling of living in the country, we are just minutes from shopping, medical services, and all the amenities the city has to offer.

The Grace Center is a Community Base Care facility verses a skilled nursing home facility. We are not billable to Medicare like skilled facilities. However, you can receive services from outside providers when ordered by your Practitioner who can bill your insurance for services like physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy
