    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Longview

    Longview, Washington, is situated on the Colombia River approximately 50 miles northwest of Portland, Oregon. The city offers nature-loving seniors convenient access to recreational sites such as the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Clatsop State Forest. Longview provides seniors, which comprise nearly one-fifth of the population, with six assisted living facilities within the city limits and four nearby. ALFs in the Longview, like the rest of the state, are regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services and are defined by the state as community settings that care for seven or more residents.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Longview

    • The city of Longview is serviced by the RiverCities Transit public transportation system. For seniors who like to fly, the closest major international airport is across state borders.
    • Longview is situated in a gorge and thus has a climate that is very different from the nearby metropolitan area of Portland. Longview temperatures typically range between 78 degrees in the summer to 30 degrees in the winter, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy a moderate climate. Additionally, Longview experiences 10 more inches of rain annually than the national average rainfall per year. 
    • Longview has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Longview Senior Center, an organization that offers seniors socialization through congregate meals, various games and educational classes.
    • Air quality is scored on a scale of 1-100 (with 100 being a perfect score) based on the number of hazardous pollutants in the atmosphere. Longview's air quality receives a score of 54, four points lower than the national average air quality score of 58. Because the air quality in Longview is slightly below average, seniors whose health conditions are worsened by poor air quality should speak to a healthcare professional to determine how the city's air quality may affect them. 
    • The Longview area is home to world-class medical facilities, including PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • On a scale of A-F, Longview receives a failing grade for its high crime rates, with nearly 70 percent more incidents of crime reported than the state rate of reported crimes. To protect seniors, most assisted living facilities have security systems but seniors and their family members may want to inquire about the facility's security plan.
