What to Consider About Memory Care in Eugene

The Oregon Department of Human Services, Office of Safety, Oversight and Quality, regulates memory care facilities in Eugene and the rest of the state. These facilities are licensed as assisted living facilities, and they must obtain endorsements on their licenses to provide dementia care services. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Eugene

  • There are 240 doctors per 100,000 people in the Eugene area compared to the national average of 210, and health care costs such as hospital stays and primary care visits are about 10% cheaper here than in the typical U.S. city. Eugene is home to Sacred Health Medical Center and there are two more hospitals within a 5-mile radius: Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend and McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center. This may make it easy to obtain primary and specialty care services.  
  • Oregon doesn’t impose income taxes on Social Security benefits, but all other types of retirement income are fully taxed. However, the state has no sales tax, and property taxes are relatively low, which may benefit older adults who retain ownership of their homes after transitioning to memory care.  
  • Eugene is among the more affordable Oregon cities to live in with an overall cost of living that’s 5% higher than the national median but about 8% lower than the state as a whole. Housing costs are fairly high but lower utility and transportation bills may help keep long-term care costs in check.  
  • Property crime is somewhat prevalent in Eugene, but the violent crime rate is consistent with the national average. This may make memory care a good alternative to living alone. According to the FBI, in 2018, property crime occurred at a rate of 3,571 compared to the national rate of 2,110. However, this type of crime has been trending downward for 2 decades, dropping from a rate of 6,894 in 2000. The violent crime rate in 2018 was 390 in Eugene versus 379 nationally.
  •  Eugene’s weather is typical of Oregon as a whole, with summer high temperatures in the low-80s and winter highs in the mid-40s. The region receives about 47 inches of annual rainfall, but residents only see about 3 inches of snow, most of which comes in February. This provides plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors.  

Paying for Memory Care in Eugene
