History & Values
Saratoga Retirement Community has been serving seniors since 1912. It is owned by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Rebekahs (IOOF), one of the oldest Fraternal Orders in the world, and the Order's commitment to serving others is reflected in all aspects of the Saratoga Retirement Community lifestyle—from the comfortable accommodations to the excellent healthcare and incredible array of services and amenities.
In 1999, Saratoga Retirement Community came under the executive management of Pacific Retirement Services, Inc. (PRS), which oversaw a large campus expansion that included completely renovating the historic Saratoga Manor building, adding more apartment homes and cottages, and constructing a fireside lounge and bar, fitness center, indoor pool, bocce court, and other resort-style amenities.
In 2005, the historic 1912 Saratoga Manor building was presented with the Gold Nugget Award for Best Adaptive Re-Use Project. The oldest and largest program of its kind, Gold Nugget Awards honor creative achievements in architectural design and land-use planning for residential, commercial and industrial projects. Entries come from 14 western states and all countries bordering the Pacific Ocean.
Pacific Retirement Services, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization headquartered in Medford, Oregon, that was formally incorporated in 1991. Today PRS develops, operates, manages, and markets a family of more than 50 retirement communities and service organizations in six states across the United States. The corporation has nearly 3,000 employees and provides housing and services to more than 5,200 seniors through its many affiliated organizations.
About the IOOF:
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows has a long history of serving others. This commitment to serving others is at the heart of the Odd Fellows’ philosophy and is expressed by its organizational motto: “Friendship, Love, and Truth.” For more than two centuries, members of the IOOF have demonstrated their commitment to these values by providing care and comfort to homeless children, the poor, and the elderly. Though Saratoga Retirement Community is owned by the IOOF, one does not need to be a member of the Order to live there. The Odd Fellows welcomes everyone to enjoy the Saratoga lifestyle.
Saratoga Retirement Community is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of residents through the provision of quality retirement housing, compassionate healthcare services, and life-enhancing activities promoting personal dignity and self-esteem.
