With breathtaking mountain views, Kamlu Retirement Inn offers suburban living surrounded by the peaceful beauty of nature. Located on the north bank of the Columbia River in Vancouver, WA, this independent senior living community is adjacent to healthcare and next door to David Douglas Park, a community gathering area for sporting events.

Positioned between Mount St. Helens, Columbia River Gorge and the Pacific Coast, Vancouver is rich with scenic landscapes and historic attractions. From Kamlu, you’re only 5 miles from the Waterfront Renaissance Trail, a riverfront path between two parks perfect for an evening stroll. Along the path, you’ll find places to shop or eat a meal. Access a variety of medical care within a half mile of the community, including the Peacehealth Medical Center.

Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.

That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.

The chef takes into account the tastes and preferences of the residents. She discusses the recipes with them at the monthly roundtable, where cinnamon rolls are most likely served since it's a community favorite.

 

Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Vancouver area and Kamlu's makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Residents at Kamlu enjoy museums, local events like music in the park, and visits to orchards and wineries. Cracker Barrel is just one current favorite dining destination. There are also monthly opportunities for shopping at the Vancouver Mall, trips to the casino, as well as waterfront and beach destinations.

Life is Never Boring

Kamlu Retirement Inn-Vancouver’s comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Residents bond over on-site jewelry and clothing shows and poker nights in the fireplace lounge. Traveling to other senior communities for bean bag baseball face-offs is taken seriously. With eight sewing machines, quilting is done in “the sewing palace." There's a community rose garden where residents can show off their green thumb.

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Kamlu Retirement Inn-Vancouver. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Some of the best days are when Delbert and Kiki, 2 standard poodle therapy dogs come to the community for a visit. And pretty much all the resident pets have been adopted as the community pets! There are also 2 aquariums that all the residents enjoy.

 

Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi

Kamlu Retirement is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

The community sewing group is so talented that they do outreach for charities all over the world. For example, they've made dresses for little girls in Africa. Some of the other charities residents support are, Rock-a-thon for Alzheimers, Heart Association Drive, Holiday for Salvation Army, and the school supply drive for a local Elementary School.
