    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bandon

    Beautiful Bandon, Oregon, hugs the Pacific Ocean, with plenty to offer for those who enjoy the outdoors, from swimming to fishing to walks along the beach. The community itself is small, with a population of just 3,000. Of that number, 29% are seniors aged 65 and older. These individuals may need accommodations in an assisted living home as they grow older, with staff on hand to give light medical care, reminders and redirection, and help with daily living needs. 

    In Oregon, assisted living facilities are licensed and regulated through the Oregon Department of Human Services. There are two of these group homes in Bandon.
