Washington Offers Comfort To Assisted Living Residents

The origin of the city’s name comes from a battle, one that actually never took place. The story unfolded in 1855, when the Klickitat Indians escaped from Fort Vancouver. Captain Strong headed up the army in charge of bringing them back to the fort.  After peaceful negotiations with Indian Chief Umtuch, Captain Strong was promised the Klickitat would return to the fort on their own accord without incident. There are different versions of what happened next, but Chief Umtuch ended up being killed, and there remains a great deal of speculation about his death. Captain Strong allowed the Indians to bury their chief and he returned to the fort with the Indians’ assurance of coming back on their own. The Klickitat returned voluntarily as promised, but for not bringing them back forcibly, Captain Strong was sarcastically “presented with a red petticoat for his so called lack of bravery and courage.” The Battle Ground area later became known as “Strong’s Battle Ground”.

The city of Battle Ground is located in the southwestern corner in the state of Washington, just four miles from Interstate 5. Battle Ground is a full service city that serves as the social and commercial hub of north Clark County and is surrounded by scenic and pristine landscape. The city offers outstanding opportunities to live, work and shop. Battle Ground enjoys a mild climate, clean air, beautiful scenic views in a country setting. It has the advantages of small town living while being only a short drive to the amenities of Portland, Oregon. The city is also home to a number of adult residential facilities including nursing homes, dementia care and assisted living facilities that take care in creating warm, supportive, home-like residences for their older adults. From social, cultural and educational life enrichment programs to amenities that foster an easy way of life, assisted living homes respect each resident’s individuality and are the basis for all they offer.

Each resident receives personalized service in a place where friendly faces and conversations are easy to come by. Battle Ground is a city where independence and dignity are respected. In the past, the town’s economy was dominated by timber, agriculture, dairy, and although it served as a regional center of commerce, population growth was extremely slow until the last decades of the twentieth century. As its legacy industries have declined in importance in more recent years, Battle Ground’s proximity to both Portland and Vancouver has drawn a flood of new residents. The first decade of the twenty first century has seen it become one of the fastest growing cities in the state, and it remains the commercial, cultural, and educational hub of central Clark County. Battle Ground, Washington is a city with much to offer residents & visitors alike.
