    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.
