What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woodburn

The Oregon Department of Human Services licenses assisted living facilities in the entire state, including those in Woodburn. This department oversees provider training and sets minimum standards for the scope of services facilities must provide. It also fields and investigates reports of abuse and substandard care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Woodburn

  • In Woodburn, residents spend about 18% more on health care, 14% more on transportation and 9% more on utilities than in a typical U.S. city, resulting in an overall cost of living that exceeds the national norm by 6.5%. Fortunately, the state funds programs such as the Aging and People with Disabilities Waiver, which pays for some services qualified seniors receive in assisted living.
  • Woodburn has a crime rate of 38 incidents per 1,000 residents, which is among the highest crime rates in the nation. About 94% of U.S. communities and 90% of Oregon cities have less crime, and even similarly sized cities tend to have fewer incidents of criminal activity. To promote residents’ safety, local assisted living facilities have surveillance cameras and alarm systems.
  • Summers in Woodburn last from late June through mid-September and bring daytime temperatures of 77 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold season is a little longer, beginning in early November and lasting through late February, with seniors seeing highs between 46 and 54 degrees Fahrenheit. Noticeable humidity is rare, but the city gets about 52 inches of rainfall annually.
  • Oregon doesn’t have a sales tax, and low property taxes reduce assisted living costs for many seniors. The state taxes most retirement income at rates of up to 9.90%, but it provides full exemptions for Social Security benefits.
  • Woodburn scores 56 on the AARP Livability Index and ranks among the top half of U.S. communities for health care, transportation amenities and social involvement. Its preventable hospitalization rate is 28.6 incidents per 100,000 people versus 38.2 nationally, indicating access to outpatient services. Additionally, there are 2.7 cultural or arts institutions per 10,000 people compared to 1.9 nationally, promoting engagement for older residents.
  • Out of 35 surveyed counties in Oregon, Marion County ranks 10th for health. Only 44% of Medicare beneficiaries in this region receive flu vaccinations compared to the national norm of 51%, and a shortage of primary care physicians impacts access to medical support. Even so, the average life expectancy in this region is 79.4, which is higher than the national norm of 78.5.
