We at Turner Retirement Homes (TRH) continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 virus that has captured our attention in order to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. TRH realizes the great inconvenience restrictions to mitigate the spread of the virus causes but will continue to be diligent in our efforts of best practices to ensure the safety of our vulnerable residents and essential worker employees.
Under guidelines from Federal and State agencies, including the Oregon Health Care Association, the Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as local health authorities in Marion County, TRH Administration has implemented the following restrictions and guidelines to mitigate the spread of contagion:
1. Daily screening of residents for symptoms.
2. Any resident who is symptomatic is immediately placed in contact isolation protocol with guidance from the CDC. Isolation protocols include staff wearing personal protective equipment which can include gowns, gloves, eye shields, and masks.
3. Restriction of all visitors entering a resident's room with the exception of resident’s at end of life.
4. Only essential personnel will be allowed into the Residential Care Facility (RCF) and other TRH buildings after they have been screened for respiratory symptoms and had a temperature check.
5. Entering any TRH building begins at the Care Station. All additional entrances and exits are secured.
6. All group activities for RCF and Independent residents have been canceled and alternative arrangements made.
7. The dining hall is open only to RCF residents beginning June 8. Independent residents who have decided for Dietary Services to prepare meals will continue to have box meals delivered to their residence.
8. All residents are encouraged to stay in their rooms or apartments as much as possible and to avoid going out into the local community.
With the State of Oregon lifting some of the COVID restrictions, as of September 1, 2020, visitors are now welcome to come and visit residents located in our Residential Care Facility from outside on their patio area. Please make sure you are first checking in at the care station for screening before going to the patio. Best practices are still in place, so please maintain your distance during your visit. We still cannot allow visitors into the facility, so no going into a resident's room.
We are sincerely grateful for your cooperation during this challenging and uncertain time. We want to recognize our compassionate and skilled employees for their dedication to caring for our residents.

Turner Retirement Homes (TRH) is located in the heart of Turner, just Southeast of Salem, Oregon. TRH was founded in 1933 when Cornelia Turner Davis donated land and funds to establish Turner Memorial Home. It was created to provide benevolent housing for retired ministers and missionaries from Christian Churches, Disciples of Christ, and Churches of Christ, who dedicated their lives to share and teach the Word of God. Since 1933 we have evolved and grown, but we still retain the mission of our essential purpose - to provide affordable housing to Christians in need.
Turner Retirement Homes is a non-profit corporation that is made up of a Board of Trustees and Advisors. The TRH Board affirms and maintains the purpose to provide a channel to assist Christian congregations in providing a place for their retired people where their spiritual, physical, and some essential needs can be met. We administer our facility taking into consideration the resident's natural fears, loneliness, failing strength, and monetary resources as the resident ages.
Turner Retirement Homes provides independent housing and a Residential Care Facility in a beautiful small town country setting with the security and support of our highly professional staff. We understand the need for additional support and care as people age. We know that a resident's care needs may change as they age, so TRH is happy to be able to provide both options of independent living in our community as well as assisted living in our Residential Care Facility. We value independence and help our residents to thrive at each stage of retired life.

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Creator of all things
visible and invisible.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, the eternal Word, the one and only Savior. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary, both fully human and fully divine; Who lived a sinless life; Who suffered and was crucified as an atonement
for sin; Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third
day; Who ascended into Heaven; and Who will return in victory to rule forever.
We believe in the Holy Spirit.
Who convicts of sin; Who indwells every Christian; Who helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us in prayer; and Who empowers us to a fruitful Christian life.
We believe in the Bible—God’s Holy Word.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Holy Word and is the only one and true book of Scripture.
We believe God inspired the original writings of Scripture.
We believe that the Bible is authoritative for the Covenants of God, Old, and New.
We confess one Creed: Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
We confess one authority: The Word of God revealed in the New Testament.
We hold one measure or standard as authoritative: that way of life, personal and as a Body, practiced and taught by the Apostles Jesus appointed as His witnesses.
We believe God intentionally designed His people to be marked by four characteristics: one-ness, holiness, universality, and apostolic.
We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image, and that life is therefore sacred, from conception to natural death.
We believe that God created each person as male or female; that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the
“image of God” in humankind; and that each person’s biological gender is an intrinsic, immutable aspect of his or her nature and identity.
We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman; that He has reserved sexual intimacy as an expression of love and commitment between married couples; and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin.
We believe in the Gospel—the Good News of Salvation.
That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently, lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. That salvation is by grace through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. That salvation is a new relationship with God in Christ and a new life-style appropriate to the new relationship. That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized by immersion.
This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. For purposes of Turner Retirement Homes’ faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Board of Trustees for Turner Retirement Homes are the final authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
When applying for residency at Turner Retirement Homes all forms need to be completed and returned with the application fee of $150.00.
