What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oregon

Assisted living facilities in Oregon and throughout Ohio are known as residential care facilities. They’re licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Regulatory Operations, a division of the Ohio Department of Health. The Bureau conducts regular inspections of facilities to ensure they comply with the state’s rules and regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oregon

  • Oregon’s overall cost of living is almost 20 points lower than the national average. When compared to the Ohio average, Oregon has lower costs for groceries, health and transportation, which allows seniors to save money for other retirement expenses.
  • Seniors in Oregon experience cold winters with around 30 inches of snow a year. However, summers are warm, with an average temperature of 85 degrees in July, so retirees can enjoy the sunshine at Lake Erie and the city’s parks. 
  • Air quality in Oregon is mixed. The State of the Air Report gives Lucas County passing grades for both 24-hour and annual particle pollution. However, the area has a failing grade for high ozone days. Seniors who have conditions that impact their lungs may wish to discuss any concerns with their doctor. 
  • Seniors in Oregon don’t pay state income tax on Social Security retirement benefits, which can help boost retirement budgets. Pensions and income from retirement accounts are taxable; however, credits are available to retirees. Although sales taxes in Ohio are higher than the national average, exemptions on groceries, prescription drugs and newspapers can help seniors save money.
  • Oregon has two hospitals that provide care for residents in the case of injury or illness. This includes St. Charles Mercy Hospital, which offers specialist geriatric services. Seniors can also access hospitals and other health care services in the wider Toledo area.
  • Oregon’s overall crime rate is 34 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than the national average. Property crime in the area is significantly higher than the Ohio average, but violent crime is lower than the state average. Safety-conscious seniors may wish to inquire about security features of any assisted living facilities they visit.
