    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Coos Bay

    Coos Bay is a popular destination for seniors due to its scenic location and world-class parks and attractions, including three state parks and the boardwalk. More than 20% of the population here is aged 65 and over. Among this population, some seniors need help with daily activities, and they can get it at three assisted living facilities located within the community.

    In Coos Bay and the rest of Oregon, assisted living communities are officially known as assisted living or residential care facilities. They are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Coos Bay

    • Public transportation is available for seniors in Coos Bay on the Coos County Area Transit system. Within the city, the Bay Area Loop Service provides local transit Monday through Friday. Intercity connections are also available to Lakeside and Myrtle Point several days per week.
    • Coos Bay is one of the more affordable places for seniors in Oregon to live. The overall cost of living is 10% lower than the national average of 100 and 34.4 points lower than the Oregon average of 134.4.
    • Oregon does not collect any state income tax on social security benefits, meaning many seniors in Coos Bay may have more money to put toward assisted living. The state does tax other types of retirement income, including private pensions and investment accounts. Credits are available for seniors who earn $22,500 or less. 
    • Coos Bay has a very rainy climate with cool temperatures throughout the year, so seniors that prefer warmer weather may want to look elsewhere. The city gets an average of 64 inches of rain per year, and the average high temperature in July is just 67 degrees. 
    • The Coos Bay area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bay Area Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
