What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ontario

Ontario is located along the Snake River at the Idaho border in the Treasure Valley. Seniors looking for easy access to outdoor recreation will find five public parks, the Ontario State Recreation Site and 20 tennis courts within the city limits.

Adults aged 65 and over make up approximately 17.2% of Ontario’s population of about 11,400. Seniors seeking community-based care settings that provide support while promoting independence have four assisted living facilities to choose from in Ontario. Oregon has both ALFs and residential care facilities (RCFs), and the Oregon Department of Human Services licenses both types of communities in the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ontario

  • Ontario's Four Rivers Cultural Center and Museum offers seniors musical and dramatic productions, concerts, the Oregon Symphony and other inspiring entertainment at the 535-seat Meyer-McLean Performing Arts Theatre. The 85,000-square-foot conference center hosts events and programs year-round, and the Harano Gallery rotates local and national exhibits.
  • The Ontario area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Saint Alphonsus Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors and their families may find the high property crime rate in Ontario concerning. On a 100-point scale, Ontario rates an 88.1, significantly higher than the U.S. average of 35.4. Ontario’s violent crime score of 25.2 is also higher than the national average of 22.7.
  • Although Ontario is relatively dry, with an annual average of 11 inches of snow and 13 inches of rain, it's one of the hottest places in Oregon. Seniors who like warm weather and bright days enjoy 207 days of sunshine per year in Ontario and about 24 days on which the temperature exceeds 90 degrees.
  • Ontario seniors may appreciate the lack of a sales tax in Oregon and that the state doesn't tax Social Security benefits. However, other retirement income is taxed at the top income tax rate, which can be as high as 9.9%. For that reason, Kiplinger considers Oregon to be not tax-friendly for retirees.
  • Ontario’s overall cost of living is nearly 15% lower than the national average, but that’s primarily due to housing and transportation costs, which are about 27% lower than the U.S. average. Seniors in Ontario typically pay about 8% more for groceries.
