    What to Consider About Memory Care in Linn County

    Linn County, located in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, is home to more than 116,000 residents, more than 15 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. Some of those seniors may be part of the 65,000 Oregon residents living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. That number is expected to grow by over 29 percent within the next six years. There are currently four memory care facilities in Linn County, with three in Albany and one located in Lebanon.

    • The cost of living in Linn County is 102.3, slightly higher than the national average of 100. Housing is the biggest factor in the higher cost of living. Seniors might find that the lower healthcare and transportation costs at 83 and 87, respectively, help offset the higher cost of living.

Although these crime rates are slightly higher than the averages, most secure facilities have safeguards in place, like alarms and cameras.
    • Oregon’s moderately tax-friendly status may result in Linn County seniors having more money to contribute to their memory care budget. While retirement savings income is fully taxed, and pensions are partially taxed, no taxes are applied to Social Security benefits.

Although the area gets more rain that most of the country, 56 inches compared to the average of 39, it also gets less snow than other areas of the country, four inches compared to 26.
