    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Molalla

    Molalla, which is named for the Molalla tribe, has about 9,200 residents and a senior community that makes up 11% of the population. The city has a rich history, which residents can learn about at the Molalla Museum Complex. This complex consists of a farming and logging machinery shed, the Dibble House, the Vonder Ahe house and the Ivor Davies Hall. Seniors are eligible to purchase a membership to the site for a reduced price.  

    In Molalla, assisted living facilities are divided into two categories depending on the level of care they provide. Assisted living residences or residential care homes are licensed by the Oregon Department of Human Services. Molalla seniors can choose from three local facilities. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Molalla

    • The Molalla area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Silverton. 

    • Oregon does not impose state income tax on Social Security benefits, and seniors may claim tax credits to minimize how much they pay in taxes on pension income. Withdrawals from retirement accounts are taxed like regular income. This may affect how much money seniors can put toward assisted living expenses in Molalla. 

    • Molalla is an expensive place to live, even when compared to other Oregon cities. On a 100-point index based on the national average, Molalla's cost of living is rated 130.9, which is several points higher than the statewide median of 124.4. This may result in higher assisted living costs.   

    • While Molalla's property crime rate is a little higher than the national median, its violent crime rate is notably lower, which may provide peace of mind for seniors who are researching local assisted living options. 

    • Molalla's weather is comfortable throughout the year. Summer highs are in the range of 72 to 81 degrees, and winter highs are from 46 to 56 degrees. The area only receives an inch of annual snowfall, which may appeal to seniors who do their own driving.  

    • The level of harmful air pollutants is a little lower in Molalla than in the nation as a whole, which may make it a good option for seniors who have conditions like heart disease or asthma. Molalla's air quality is rated 63 out of 100, compared to the national average of 58.
