    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salem

    Salem, the Oregon state capital, is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley growing area, which is known for its abundant blueberries, cherries, hazelnuts and wine. Much of this bounty finds its way to the Saturday farmers' market that sets up just outside of the capitol grounds in downtown Salem from May through October.

    Seniors who enjoy this area and are in need of help with activities of daily living, personal care and medication management have 34 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Salem to choose from. Oregon state law defines ALFs as those facilities having six or more seniors housed in self-contained living units. all regulated by the Oregon Department of Human Services

    • The air in the Salem/Portland, Oregon area is relatively poor. The National Lung Association gives the air in the region a "C" rating for high ozone days and a "D" rating for 24-hour particle pollution. This could potentially aggravate asthma, COPD and other chronic breathing conditions.
    • It's not inexpensive to live in Salem. The cost of living in the city is8 percent higher than the national average. The cost of health care and utilities, in particular, are higher in Salem than the U.S. average, which can be a burden to older people living on a fixed income. 

    • Salem has mild winters and warm, dry summers, although it can be rainy in the fall and early winter. The average high temperature in Salem in January is 48 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average high temperature in July is 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The rainy season dampness can be troublesome for older people with chronic joint issues like arthritis.

    • Crime is a problem throughout the Pacific Northwest and Salem is no exception. While the crime rate in Salem has decreased slightly in recent years, it is still 52 percent higher than the national average, which can be somewhat scary for seniors and their families.
    • Seniors with cars can travel easily to Portland and Eugene via I-5, which runs through the center of Salem. For public transportation, the Salem Area Mass Transit System operates daily public bus transportation and offers seniors, age 60 and older, a fare discount when they obtain a discounted fare card. Dial-a-Ride offers curb-to-curb transportation for seniors Monday through Friday at an affordable rate.

    • The Salem, Oregon area is home to world-class medical facilities including Salem Health Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
