What to Consider About Assisted Living in Florence

Florence sits right next to the Siuslaw River and is home to the Heceta Head Lighthouse, which is one of nine historic lighthouses on the Oregon coast. The city is a popular destination for retirement and as a result, of the 9,103 people living in the city, 41.4% are seniors 65 and older.

In order to accommodate seniors who need 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living, there are three assisted living facilities within the city. These facilities, as well as all residential care facilities and memory care communities within the state, are regulated and licensed by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Florence

 

  • The cost of living in Florence is 1.7% higher than the national average, so seniors may need to be conscious of their budgets when considering assisted living expenses. On the upside, the cost of living is 22.7% lower than the rest of Oregon. 
  • Florence is generally a cool place, which is great for seniors who do not enjoy high temperatures. Summer months typically don't get higher than around 70 degrees. The city is very rainy though, as they get an average of 78 inches of rain each year. 
  • While the average for violent crime is 11 points lower than the national average and 6 points lower than the state's average, property crime is extremely high, which may be a concern for seniors. Property crime in Florence is 31.9 points higher than the national average and 23.9 points higher than the state's average.
  • The Florence area is home to world-class medical facilities, including PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Rhody Express is Florence's public transportation provider. It has special accessibility features for those who have mobility equipment, as well as bus buddies who can ride with seniors and offer additional assistance. Fares are set at low prices for either a one-way trip or a day pass.
  • Florence has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior & Disability Services, an organization that advocates for seniors and provides resources in order to promote a better quality of life, as well as three senior centers.
