What to Consider About Memory Care in Happy Valley

In Clackamas County, Oregon, an estimated 9.6 percent of the county's population aged 65 or over had Alzheimer's disease in 2015. In Happy Valley, although this group accounts for only 9.7 percent of townspeople, the city and its neighboring communities are home to more than 20 different memory care facilities. Officially, these facilities are licensed either as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs), Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) or nursing home facilities. Any facility in the Happy Valley area that offers memory care must meet additional guidelines and be endorsed by the state. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Happy Valley

  • Because air pollution can aggravate preexisting respiratory illnesses and potentially put a senior's health at risk, families may want to consider local air quality ratings when selecting a memory care facility. In Happy Valley's case, the entire county of Clackamas was given a passing grade of C for ozone.
  • Memory care facilities in Happy Valley may offer their residents secure outdoor areas where they can exercise and enjoy the weather when it is fair. The city does tend to get a lot of precipitation, including about 49 inches of rainfall in a typical year, compared to a national average of only 39 inches a year.
  • On average, it costs 24 percent more to live in Oregon than the national average. By comparison, in Happy Valley, the overall cost of living is 60 percent above the national average. Families may want to keep these higher costs in mind when they are budgeting for memory care services.
  • The Happy Valley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the OHSU Brain Institute in nearby Portland, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
