My 12-yr-old daughter has developed an eating disorder and we are seriously considering spending the summer in Portland so that she can go to the Kartini Clinic there (we live in Montana). It's a 2 month long (at least) day treatment program and so she'd be "home" with me and her siblings evenings and weekends. The clinic is in Eliot, right by Portland Children's Hospital.
What I would like advice on is either any nice neighborhoods on the NE side of Portland, or even any neighborhoods that are just easy access to Eliot. We have a car and actually she can't be doing a lot of walking anyway. Or even any nice towns, suburbs, further out neighborhoods that would be a simple drive twice a day. I don't mind driving 20 -30 min if it's not just because of bad traffic. We need something reasonably affordable and I'm really hoping to find something pretty nice, that will be a relaxing place to spend the time that she isn't in the clinic - because it's going to be stressful for us both.
Any suggestions at all would be very much appreciated.
(ps - we used to live in Olympia and have spent quite a bit of time in Portland and the area)
