- Portland’s overall cost of living is 24 percent higher than the state average and 48 percent higher than the nationwide average, primarily due to the high cost of housing in the area. Healthcare expenses are slightly less than the state’s median costs and 16 percent less than the nation’s average, which may help families afford memory care.
- Portland’s climate is comfortable, with July highs around 80 degrees and January lows in the mid-30s. The weather here affords seniors many opportunities for supervised time outdoors. The area receives slightly more rainfall than the average U.S. city but only 3 inches of snow annually, making local travel convenient for families visiting loved ones in memory care.
