    What to Consider About Memory Care in Washington County

    Washington County, located in northwest Oregon along the Columbia River, is home to 529,710 people, 10 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older, the vulnerable age bracket for diagnoses of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. There are currently 65,000 people in Oregon living with Alzheimer’s, a number that’s expected to grow by almost 30 percent in the next six years. There are 11 memory care facilities in the county to support this growing demographic.

    Memory Care Communities, as they are known in Washington County and the rest of Oregon, are governed by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    • Washington County has warm summers with highs of 80 degrees and cooler winters with temperatures rarely dropping below 35.

The county only has 143 sunny days each year compared to the country's average of 205. Seniors who enjoy participating in supervised outdoor activities might not like living in Washington County.
    • Oregon doesn’t tax Social Security income, although it partially taxes pensions and fully taxes retirement savings account withdrawals. Seniors on tight budgets in Washington County might benefit from these tax savings.
