What to Consider About Memory Care in Tigard

The Oregon Department of Human Services officially licenses memory care communities as community-based care facilities, and it requires them to follow standard rules for housing, care and staffing. To operate, facilities must renew their licenses annually and submit to regular inspection. The department also investigates reports of abuse.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Tigard

  • Tigard ranks among the most age-friendly communities in the nation, receiving a score of 62 points on the AARP Livability Index. Across the index’s seven metrics, the city performs especially well in health for its very low preventable hospitalization rate and high patient satisfaction rate. This may make it a favorable option for those seeking daily care for chronic conditions, such as dementia.
  • Tigard’s annual crime rate averages 41 incidents per 1,000 people, with property-related offenses driving this high frequency. While this may be a concern for those seeking safe accommodations for a loved one’s care, neighborhoods such as Bull Mountain West and River Terrace see minimal criminal activity and may have long-term care options for those with memory loss.
  • Oregon imposes income taxes on withdrawals from retirement accounts and pension income. However, it fully exempts Social Security benefits from taxation for all seniors, and it doesn’t have a sales tax, making memory care in Tigard financially viable for many older adults.
  • Tigard’s cost of living exceeds the U.S. average by 28% and the state norm by 12%, making it a relatively expensive option for those considering memory care services in Tualatin Valley. Fortunately, the state helps qualified seniors pay for care through Medicaid long-term care benefits.
  • In Tigard, residents experience a relatively short summer season, with temperatures ranging from 76 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Winter temperatures run lower at highs of 45 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity levels are low throughout the year. This may appeal to older adults who enjoy therapeutic outdoor activities.

 

Paying for Memory Care in Tigard

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

Tigard seniors pay roughly $6,219 per month for residential dementia support.

Additionally, adult day health care facilities, which don’t provide housing, charge $2,708 for light medical care and personal assistance. On the other hand, agencies charge higher rates of $7,146 for in-home care services, such as medication reminders and nonemergency medical transportation, as well as home health care, which encompasses basic skilled nursing services. Nursing home care, which provides 24-hour skilled nursing and personal care beyond the scope of memory care facilities, costs roughly $10,661 per month.
