At Palvella Glen, rich opportunities for intergenerational connections and activities are available through our close association with Whitworth University. We strive to support full engaging lifestyles for every resident. There’s no reason to lose vitality and connections with others due to aging. We won’t let that happen!

Need a Hand?

As with all Rockwood Retirement Communities, Palvella Glen residents are assisted by supportive and caring team members. You are a unique person, and Palvella Glen provides the right balance of independent living and assistance with your specific daily tasks. You’ll live confidently and securely, knowing that each day can be met with friendship, conversation, activities, or even time alone reading your favorite book — it’s your choice.

The Palvella Glen community offers you quick and easy access to beautiful living rooms and dining rooms on each floor, a bright sunroom, a beauty salon, a large community balcony, and even a private dining room for special meals and occasions.

Just a Reminder

Rockwood Retirement Communities specializes in memory support care, with deep experience, respect, and love for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Palvella Glen residents enjoy their own private bedroom and bathroom that can be decorated with personal items, photos, and artwork to reflect their own interests and personality.


Our 24 memory support studios are part of a secure residential setting that includes dining rooms, living rooms, warm and beautiful fireplaces, and an art studio to create beauty and emotional expression. There’s a sensory room where sights, sounds, textures, and scents calm the mind. Residents can enjoy an enclosed patio with outdoor garden and walking areas to safely spend time outdoors surrounded by trees, plants, fresh air, and birdsong.

Fulfilled Living

At Palvella Glen, our commitment to residents and their families is that each person will receive compassionate and dignified care in a manner that supports and embraces their life. The word "palvella" means "to serve" in Finnish and high quality service is our utmost goal.  A fulfilling life doesn’t need to change when a person can no longer live independently. Residents receive help with self-care, laundry, health needs, and cooking and cleaning. A resident’s life improves when they can spend more time learning, making friends, and finding purpose.

Palvella Glen team members actively engage with and listen to residents, getting to know them and their families. We work with each resident’s family members to plan and deliver compassionate care to meet your loved one’s changing needs. This collaboration between the family and team members results in a deeply caring environment that builds healthy connections and keeps hearts and minds active and focused.

Nurturing caregivers and residents experience life together in unity, where they can share ideas and solve concerns to create the best living environment for each person. At Palvella Glen, you or your loved one will be part of our Rockwood family, with every need cared for in a fresh, new, and beautiful setting.
