Welcome to Advocate Care!


Advocate Care is a specialized residential care facility located on the outskirts of beautiful Portland, Oregon. We specialize in providing care for younger adults (ages 18-65) with a wide range of disabilities; from traumatic brain injury to developmental disabilities. Our facility is in SE Portland, near bus lines and centrally located for travel to downtown Portland or Gresham. We have 32 individual rooms, a large courtyard, a diversified menu, and daily activities. There is a Registered Nurse in the building at all times, 24-hours a day. All of our staff are committed to providing the highest quality of care.


About Advocate Care


Advocate Care was created by co-owners Dan Gregory and Todd Woollard. Dan and Todd have a combined total of over 50 years of experience in the long term care industry and have devoted their careers to providing high quality, person centered care. Both Dan and Todd own and/or manage residential care and assisted living facilities in the greater Medford area (affiliated facilities) and both saw a need in the Portland Metro area to provide long term care to younger adults. Hence, the creation of Advocate Care. 

Our first facility, Advocate Care Powelhurst, is currently being renovated and should be opening its doors by May 2015. We are very excited to be coming to the Portland area and cannot wait to welcome our new residents into their new home. 

Here at Advocate Care the resident is the priority. Our job is to provide you with a home that is safe, warm, and fun, while ensuring that all of your needs are met on a daily basis.  We operate under the motto that care should always be person-centered and all of our staff are trained accordingly.

Our services include:

  • 24 hour nursing staff: there is always an RN within the building.

  • Facility-operated transportation to all medical appointments and planned outings.

  • A comprehensive activities program with a diverse selection of daily activities to choose from, both in house and in the community.

  • Social services staff to support our residents in adjusting to their new home, provide psychosocial supports, and ensure that all residents have access to all the resources they require in order to be happy and healthy.

  • A diverse daily menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, where resident requests are always welcome!
