    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake County

    Lake County has a population of almost 8,000 people, 20.4 percent of whom are seniors within the 65 and older age bracket. Some of these residents could be among the 65,000 seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia in Oregon. There are eight memory care facilities located within Lake County to care for them.

    In Lake County, and all of Oregon, memory care facilities are known as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and Residential Care Facilities (RCFs), both of which are licensed by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    • Although Oregon does not tax seniors' Social Security income, the state partially taxes pensions and fully taxes retirement savings account income. Lake County seniors may find that the state’s tax laws result in less money for their facility expenses.
    • Crime rates in Lake County are lower than the national averages. The county has a violent crime rate of 20.4 and a property crime rate of 28.6, both lower than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 respectively. Despite these low crime rates, seniors’ families may want to ensure that prospective facilities have safety measures in place, such as alarms, self-locking doors and cameras.
    • Lake County has very good air quality. On a scale where 100 represents the best air quality, Lake County has a rank of 92, almost 40 points higher than the national average of 58. Seniors with breathing impairments like COPD or lung disease may find that they feel better when living in Lake County.
    • Residents of Lake County enjoy the views during all four seasons. Summer highs can reach 86 degrees, and winter lows dip down to 22. The county gets 14 inches of rain and 25 inches of snow annually, both lower than the national averages of 39 and 26 inches respectively. The county also gets 221 sunny days each year, which might be good news for seniors who enjoy the outdoors.
