    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ashland

    Ashland, Oregon, is located in Jackson County. It sits on the California border, and seniors can enjoy a day at nearby Crater Lake. Those aged 65 and over make up approximately 22% of the city's 21,000 residents. Some in that age group may seek help with the tasks of daily living at one of the city's two assisted living facilities or six other options in nearby communities. 

    Assisted living facilities in Oregon, including Ashland, are sometimes called residential care facilities, depending on whether they have private or shared rooms. These facilities are regulated by the Oregon Department of Human Services, Office of Licensing and Regulatory Oversight

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ashland

    • The Ashland area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Asante Ashland Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Driven by housing costs with an index of 244, more than double the national base of 100, Ashland's cost of living at 140 is 15% higher than the state average and 40% higher than the U.S. average. This could be a stretch for family members moving here from less expensive communities.
    • While Ashland's violent crime rate of 10.1 is less than half the US norm of 22.7, the city's high property crime rate of 48.4 exceeds the national average of 35.4. While touring assisted living facilities in the area, it may be a good idea to ask staff what security measures are in place to keep residents safe.
    • Ashland receives 4 inches of snow and 22 inches of rain, compared to national averages of 28 and 38, respectively. However, the city has only 198 sunny days per year, seven less than the national norm. This may be a great choice for seniors who dislike rain and snow or who have difficulty getting around in wet weather. 
    • Seniors with respiratory difficulties may enjoy Ashland's air quality of 70, 12 points higher than the US median. The city's water quality of 60 is five points higher than the national average.
    • The state of Oregon doesn't tax Social Security benefits, which could be good news to Ashland seniors on a budget.
