    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Camas

    Along the north bank of the Columbia River, Camas, Washington, is part of the Portland, Oregon, metro area. The town can be an attractive option for seniors who love the proximity to Portland, with its many options for entertainment, outdoor activities and cultural enrichment, but like the relaxed pace of a smaller city.

    Seniors seeking assisted living have two facilities to choose from in Camas, with 59 more scattered throughout the Portland metro area. In Washington, the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration licenses assisted living facilities, which provide room, board and daily living assistance to residents. In Oregon, the Department of Human Services handles the licensing.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Camas

    • Seniors in Camas may need to pay more for assisted living. On a scale representing housing costs, with 100 representing the national average, Camas scores 217. Being close to Portland is nice, but the financial tradeoff may be difficult for some. 

    • Forest fires in summer can affect the air quality in Camas. To stay safe and healthy, seniors should heed any air quality alerts. Overall, Camas scores 55 out of 100 for its air quality, slightly below the national average of 58.

    • Camas gets lots of rain, averaging 50 inches annually, while the nation averages 39 inches. The town sees a mere 143 sunny days per year, while the nationwide average is 205 days. However, many enjoy the fact that Camas averages just 3 inches of snow annually. That, plus January lows of 34 degrees, may make winter excursions tolerable.

    • Camas puts up low crime numbers, which may put seniors’ minds at ease. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 representing the highest crime rates, Camas scores 27 for property crime and 22.1 for violent crime. The U.S. averages are 38.1 and 31.1.

    • Clark County’s C-TRAN provides public transportation in Camas and surrounding areas. Seniors 65 and older can qualify for discounted fares, and those with disabilities that prevent them from riding the regular bus may qualify for C-VAN, a reservation-based paratransit service. Getting to Portland may be a bit complicated for some seniors, as it can involve multiple bus transfers.

    • Seniors may enjoy excursions to downtown Camas, which is tree-lined, cozy and walkable. Vancouver, a Washington city adjacent to Camas, offers local arts and culture resources such as public art galleries, the Clark County Historical Museum and excellent public libraries.
