What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clackamas

As a Portland suburb, Clackamas offers seniors the benefits of city life but without the inconveniences of hectic urban centers. Clackamas is set within Clackamas County and is also included in the recreational Mt. Hood Territory, offering a variety of cultural and recreational activities seniors can explore.

Like all of Oregon, Clackamas' Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) are licensed through the Oregon Department of Human Services, Office of Licensing and Regulatory Oversight. ALFs are required to house at least six residents in individual units, with 24-hour access to supportive services in a homelike setting. There are two ALFs available within Clackamas' borders and 58 other options in the surrounding areas.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clackamas

  • The crime rate in Clackamas is significantly higher than most of the U.S., with a crime index of 23 out of 100, making it more dangerous than 77 percent of American cities. Senior residents have a 1 in 38 chance of becoming a crime victim, with property crime being the biggest threat.
  • The Clackamas area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors who want to avoid extreme climates will appreciate Clackamas' milder temperatures, with July highs averaging 83 degrees Fahrenheit and January lows dipping to 36 degrees.
  • Clackamas is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership "has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP.
  • Seniors in need of transportation will have access to TriMet, the Portland public transit system that serves Clackamas. Seniors who are 65 or older can pay reduced fares and receive priority seating as Honored Citizens.
  • The cost of living in Clackamas County is 46 percent higher than the national average, which may be a struggle for seniors on a budget. This includes significantly higher housing and transportation costs, but seniors will pay average prices for groceries and 16 percent less for healthcare.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Clackamas

For eligible Oregon seniors, the state's Medicaid program offers some options to ease the costs of assisted living. The K Plan helps pay for long-term support services that are commonly associated with assisted living. The Independent Choices program provides monthly cash payments to eligible seniors for self-managed care. There are also two Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waivers to mitigate assisted living costs: The Aged and Physically Disabled (APD) and the Client-Employed Provider (CEP) waivers.
