    What to Consider About Memory Care in Coos County

    Coos County, located on the southern Oregon coast, has a population of 63,043 people, over 21 percent of whom are seniors in the 65 and older age bracket. Some of these seniors might be among the 65,000 people in Oregon living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, a number that’s expected to grow by almost 30 percent before 2025. Coos County has two memory care facilities to accommodate these seniors, with one located in Bandon and the other in nearby Coos Bay.

    In Coos County, along with the rest of Oregon, memory care facilities are referred to as Memory Care Communities and are governed by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

The county also receives annual rainfalls totaling 62 inches, 20 inches more than the national average of 39 inches.
