Meet Maddy Ashe, our beloved Activities Director! Just like many of our residents, Maddy graduated from Washougal High School. She has been with us for two years and says that she most enjoys our Friday afternoon happy hours with music, since it’s the activity that brings the whole community together at the end of the week, and we see the most engagement. Maddy really likes watching the enjoyment as memories play across the happy faces during our sing-alongs.
Maddy considers herself to be “a hardworking 22-year-old making her way in the world on a path of her own choosing” and is proud of the woman she is becoming. We Celebrate you Maddy! ... See MoreSee Less

Another wonderful testimonial ~ Call our marketing director Bobbi today for information! 503-459-7180
"This past November I was able to help my 96 year old friend move into Columbia Ridge Assisted Living in Washougal.
It is quite a miraculous story how it all worked out, and Bobbi Bjork is a BIG part of this miracle!
I was given Bobbi's contact information. I immediately reached out to her. From our very first communication I could tell she was full of compassion and loved her job and the residents.
I knew after talking with her CR would be a wonderful place for my friend.
Bobbi went to great lengths to get my friend moved in as soon as possible once she was approved. From getting us a tour, answering all our questions , arranging the nursing assessment and all the paper work she was on top of it and so accommodating.
On move-in day Bobbi was so sweet, welcoming and caring. She had big vase of roses the room to greet her. Bobbi came to check on her several times and arranged for my friend to have dinner with some other residents she felt would be a good fit. She even checked back see how things were going as the days progressed.
Bobbi’s love for her job and her passion to help others is so apparent.
She was there on the holidays because she wanted to make sure the residents were all taken care of and loved on.
What a wonderful person you have representing Columbia Ridge! Bobbi is fabulous!
With gratitude, ~ J.D." ... See MoreSee Less
