    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Seaside

    Seaside is a picturesque coastal town in northern Oregon that offers seniors a diverse offering of attractions and outdoor recreational activities. Of the more than 6,700 people who call this beachtown home, more than one in five are aged 65 and over. There are two assisted living communities in Seaside that are capable of taking care of the members of this population that need some assistance with daily activities. Oregon's Department of Human Services licenses and regulates these facilities which are officially called assisted living or residential care facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Seaside

    • Seaside is one of the wettest parts of the United States with an average precipitation rate of 91 inches per year. There is, however, very little snow, and temperatures rarely go below freezing. Summers are cool and comfortable with an average July high of 67 degrees.

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

    • While the overall cost of living in Seaside is 5.1% higher than the national average of 100, this community is less expensive than many other parts of Oregon. That's one reason why Seaside may be attractive to many fixed-income seniors who want to stay in the state. 

    • Low-income seniors in Seaside are likely to benefit from Oregon's tax policies. There is no state income tax on Social Security benefits. Seniors with other sources of retirement income who make less than $22,500 are eligible for a tax credit. 

    • The Seaside Museum & Historical Society has a gallery and wealth of information about the recent and ancient history of the area. The Seaside Civic and Convention Center hosts live performances and a variety of events for seniors to enjoy throughout the year. 

    • Seaside has an array of community resources for seniors, including NorthWest Senior and Disability Services, an organization that assists seniors in need with nutrition, wellness, mental health and money management as well as one senior center.
