What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hood River

Hood River, the county seat of Hood River County, is located on the south shore of the Columbia River in the shadow of Mount Hood. The town, a popular tourist mecca in both winter and summer, has been named one of the best "cool riverfront towns" in America by "CNN Travel" magazine.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hood River

  • Hood River has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Hood River Valley Adult Center, a facility that offers meals, nutrition services and medical equipment rentals for residents age 60 and older. 
  • It is relatively expensive to living in Hood River, as it is in much of Oregon. The overall cost of living in Hood River is 28 percent higher than the national average, with all categories expect for utilities falling above the national average. This could make living on a fixed income difficult for seniors.
  • Hood River's location in the Columbia River Gorge gives the city a temperate climate and much less rain than is found in nearby Portland and Salem. The average high temperature in Hood River in January is 42 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average high temperature in July is 82 degrees, making it an enjoyable place to live for older people.
  • While most cities in Oregon are struggling with rising crime rates, Hood River enjoys relatively little crime. In fact, the overall crime rate in the city has decreased by seven percent in recent years, making it 20 percent lower than the national average.
  • Driving around Hood River is easy, given the town's compact size. For trips out of town, I-84 cuts through town and connects Hood River with Portland to the west and other Columbia River towns. For public transportation, Columbia River Transit offers both fixed route and curb-to-curb service. While there are no senior discount offered on these services, the fares are much less than you'd find in larger cities.
  • The Hood River, Oregon area is home to world-class medical facilities including Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
