What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake Oswego

The Oregon Department of Human Services, which licenses and regulates all residential care communities in Lake Oswego and the rest of the state, officially recognizes memory care facilities as community-based care facilities. This department has a unique set of rules for memory care communities related to move-in and move-out criteria, security, services and staffing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lake Oswego

  • Lake Oswego residents experience a moderate climate with mild summer and winter temperatures, which may benefit seniors who enjoy participating in outdoor recreational therapies. In the winter, daytime temperatures range from 44 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, and in the summer, daytime highs typically fall between 76 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity levels remain comfortable throughout the year, and the city gets about 52 inches of annual rainfall.
  • Seniors in Oregon don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, which may promote their financial stability throughout retirement. While they pay taxes at rates between 4.75% and 9.90% on other forms of income, credits are available for seniors with pensions or annual incomes of less than $22,500.
  • Although Lake Oswego doesn’t have its own hospital, it sits near several major medical facilities, such as Providence Milwaukie Hospital in Milwaukie and Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center in Tualatin. Additionally, many local memory care facilities have on-staff nurses and on-call physicians who provide medical oversight and routine wellness exams.
  • Lake Oswego’s air quality is moderate, which may affect the health of seniors sensitive to environmental pollutants. The American Lung Association gives the region a C for ozone pollution and records an average of 5 days annually in which smog levels may be high enough to affect vulnerable individuals, including memory care residents. Fortunately, the air quality has been improving over the past two decades.
  • Crime is uncommon in Lake Oswego, and property-related crime accounts for most incidents. On a 100-point scale, the city rates 22 for property crime, coming in well below the national norm of 35.4. Violent crime is even more rare, earning the city a score of 8.4 versus 22.7 nationally.
  • Lake Oswego is a relatively costly place to live, even compared to Oregon’s cost of living. On a 100-point index based on national living costs, this city scores 133.7. This exceeds the national norm by 34% and Oregon’s average by about 20 percentage points. Fortunately, the state’s Aging and Disability Resource Center has specialists who help individuals determine ways to pay for dementia care.

I've lived at The Pearl at Kruse Way for about two weeks. The food is a bit better compared to the other facility I visited. It's a nice facility, and my room is very nice, but it’s just expensive.
