In Springfield, which is home to a little less than 63,000 residents, 13.1 percent of the population is aged 65 or older. In cities like this where seniors make up such a large part of the population, the need for memory care is high. There is a total of nine memory care facilities, which are officially known as memory care communities throughout the state.
The Oregon Department of Human Services is responsible for regulating memory care and assisted living facilities throughout Oregon. According to state regulations, although memory care and assisted living services may often be provided in the same facility, a memory care community must be segregated in its own area where other residents may not access it.
