Desert Sage Manor

Desert Sage Manor opened in 1999 and is a non-profit affordable, older adult (62+) community. Two of our units are equipped to accommodate those who are mobility impaired and one is a hearing impaired unit. Each resident unit is accessed through interior corridors.

All units have fully functional kitchens and are equipped with full sized stove and fridge. The unit is also supplied with its own heating and air conditioning unit and has vinyl or tile flooring in kitchen and bath and carpet in living room, hall and bedroom with mini blinds for window coverings.

We offer non-coin operated laundry facilities that are for the use of residents only.

Desert Sage Manor is a non-smoking facility.

We are located in Hermiston, Oregon, very near the Columbia River, providing our residents with terrific fishing opportunities and the chance to watch a wide variety of birds and other wild life. Our annual fair includes one of the county’s top rodeo pro circuits. Desert Sage Manor is in an area with single-family homes, and apartments.

Desert Sage Manor is 5 minutes away from downtown Hermiston and conveniently close to shopping, medical services, a variety of restaurants and several churches.

Our residents enjoy monthly birthday parties, monthly resident council meeting and potluck suppers, Saturday night games, and Bible Study on Monday nights, all of which are held in the community room. We also have a monthly outing to one of our local restaurants for breakfast or lunch.

Many of our residents make quilts and other items and donate toys to give to the local Fire Department for the Christmas Express who deliver baskets to the needy families in our community. Some of the residents have gone together and sponsored a local Little League team and enjoy going to their baseball games.
