Those in our retirement community are also encouraged to attend the planned activities sponsored by Turner Retirement Home and organized by the Activity Director such as monthly Birthday-Anniversary parties, Wednesday Bible study, Wii bowling, and games like Yahtzee or bingo just to name a few.Turner Retirement Homes also has a licensed Residential Care Facility (RCF), able to extend care to 48 residents in our retirement community.

Folks enjoy an independent, fulfilling lifestyle, with services that meet their needs. In the assisted living or Residential Care Facility, the staff provides personalized assistance, compassionate care, a variety of planned activities and warm atmosphere of Christian love and hospitality. It’s the perfect alternative for seniors who can no longer live on their own.
A Residential Care Facility is a building or complex consisting of shared or individual living units in a home-like surrounding where six or more seniors reside. An RCF is not a nursing home. Residential Care Facilities offer and coordinate a range of supportive services available on a 24-hour basis to meet the activities of daily living, health and social needs.

In 1852 Henry L. Turner with his wife Judith and their three children Cornelia, George and Louis arrived in the Oregon Territory and settled in the Willamette Valley. March 8, 1871 Henry L. Turner platted out the town of Turner and in 1891, Henry’s son, George and the Oregon State Board signed final agreement papers so that Turner could erect a large tabernacle for use of the Oregon Convention of Disciples of Christ.  Later lands and funds were donated by Cornelia Turner Davis in 1933 to provide benevolent housing for retired ministers and missionaries.
