About Bess Lindahl
Portland Metro - Senior Placement Advisor
I have spent most of my life supporting and caring for seniors. And now, as a senior placement advisor, I get to help people embark on a new chapter in life, confident in the choice they have made. When seniors and families have questions about moving to a care community or what their options are, I am here to guide and support everyone through the process. And this service is at no cost to seniors and their families.
I am originally from Montana and have lived in Oregon for six years. I am always so grateful to get to live in this beautiful place. I enjoy hiking with my husband, who is an OR native, and cooking for friends and family. I have enjoyed living in several places throughout the USA and internationally, and have loved every location.
