What to Consider About Memory Care in Oregon City

The Oregon Department of Human Services licenses all memory care communities in Oregon City. This department defines the scope and level of services facilities provide to those with dementia and enforces minimum standards for staffing, staff training, care planning and nutrition and medication services. It also publishes a guide for reporting abuse that takes place in licensed memory care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Oregon City

 

  • Oregon City offers  Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center, a not-for-profit hospital with over 300 licensed health care professionals and a full range of primary and specialty services. It houses the Providence Brain and Spine Institute, which provides neurological services for cognitive disorders and dementia, and it provides in-person and virtual support groups for seniors and families affected by dementia. The hospital also provides telemedicine services, providing prompt medical care for seniors with minimal disruptions to daily routines.

 

  • Clackamas County comes in 3rd out of Oregon’s 35 ranked counties for health, and it falls in the 75-100th percentile for health outcomes and factors. These include the state’s high life expectancy, which surpasses state and national averages at 80.9 years. Compared to the rest of Oregon, a high percentage of Medicare beneficiaries get the flu vaccine annually. Additionally, the rate of preventable hospital stays averages 1,733 stays per 100,000 patients compared to 2,809 nationally, indicating access to comprehensive outpatient services.

 

  • Oregon City’s cost of living exceeds the national norm by 25% and may be a consideration for seniors who need economically priced memory care services. Health care costs exceed the national norm by 18%, driving up medical costs for those managing chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer's, and housing expenses exceed the national average by 20%. Fortunately, the state funds programs, such as the Aged and Physically Disabled Waiver, to help qualified seniors pay for care.

 

  • Oregon City has an AARP Livability Index rating of 61, which is considerably higher than the U.S. average score of 48, putting it in the top half of U.S. communities. The region doesn’t report a health care professional shortage, indicating prompt access to medical care, and clean air and water support seniors’ health.

 

  • Oregon taxes withdrawals from retirement accounts at rates of up to 9.90% and doesn’t provide any exemptions. However, it exempts Social Security benefits from taxation and allows seniors to claim credits to reduce their tax obligation on pension income, and its lack of sales tax helps seniors save money on over-the-counter and prescription drugs.
