Willow Cordain, Owner
I am a native Oregonian; I grew up in Eugene and have my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education and Promotion from Oregon State University.
I have worked in Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care Communities in Admissions, as Director and Sales Associate.
I am doing what I enjoy best. Helping families know their options so that a clear path emerges and families are calmer and less overwhelmed. I bring with me an in depth knowledge of the Eugene/Springfield area's communities.
I am on the Alzheimer’s Association Walk Committee. I was their Chairperson for the 2014 and 2015’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I have been a member of Southtowne Rotary.
For the past past 8 years, I have helped facilitate a 10-week Memory Loss Series class for those caring for loved ones with dementia. The facilitators teach classes, but many sessions are taught by local experts (e.g., Elder law attorney's, Geriatric nurse practitioners, Owners of memory care communities, EMT folks, Counselors and more). I enjoy teaching at a variety of other organizations in town as well, including for the Alzheimer's Association.
Holly Wyman, Placement Specialist
I found my way to the Pacific NW 28 years ago from California, since I was a small child, always wanting to live in a place that is green and has rain.
I realized that by helping others throughout my career, whether it was from coordinating music festivals to managing programs for elementary school children, I have always been looking for a certain kind of gratification that comes with community engagement.
I felt a calling to shift my career, instigated by the journey of my mother’s changing needs. I was so relieved to have found Willow’s services when I was stressed-out, caring for her. Willow calmed me down, helping me navigate the placing of my mom from Independent living to a Memory Care community. This was one of the harder things I have done in my life and I realized I wanted to help others, as I was helped. I look forward to helping you and your family - with compassion, empathetic understanding, and knowledge of quality communities to choose from.

“Thank you all for this remarkable session. You each communicated such important insights and strategies for dealing with the complexity of memory loss. Your interactions with each other were terrific and reinforced the points you were making.

Willow Care ~TESTIMONIAL
Willow Care Consulting was a miracle for my family. My mom needed urgent help with a particularly difficult situation. Willow not only provided us with several solid options, but she also gave us hope and positivity during an especially hard time for our family. She was organized, efficient, and responded to us quickly... ...Navigating this with Willow was helpful beyond words. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, even the seemingly most complicated situation like ours was.
