If you’re looking for a senior living community in Portland, Oregon, you’re bound to find something that suits your budget and lifestyle. Recently named one of the best places to retire in the country, the city boasts a vibrant social culture, renowned food scene, and unmatched outdoor recreational activities. You might be looking for personal living accommodations, or you might be conducting a search for a loved one. Regardless of your needs and situation, you can find what you’re looking for.
Nevertheless, we wanted to make your search a little bit easier. Below, you’ll find featured communities and local listings, but first we wanted to provide a big-picture view of the latest development for senior living communities in Portland.
What Makes Quirky Portland Great for Senior Living
Located halfway between the Pacific coast and the Cascade Mountains, this quaint 600,000-person city offers pleasant weather, affordable housing, and a walkable landscape. Don’t let the hype make you think this city is just for “singles and young professionals.” It’s a trending destination city for all age demographics. In fact, according to the Office of Economic Analysis, 13.3 percent of the state’s population is over the age of 65, which translates to more accessible activities, community amenities, and living opportunities for seniors.
There’s a senior community for every age and lifestyle. For those seeking a more independent routine, a facility like Cherry Blossom Cottage might be good for you. For those needed more direct, hands-on care, the recent acquisition of a 102-unit assisted living and memory care facility by National Health Investors will be right up your alley. Want a solution with independence and hands-on care? Calaroga Terrace is the perfect choice. These established communities and emerging developments— like the ones listed below—offer a range of services and levels of care. With a little research and by touring a facility or two, you’re bound to find the perfect fit.
Get Help Making the Transition
In Portland or anywhere else, moving into a senior living community isn’t easy. There are so many things to take care of, often in the midst of an emotionally-charged situation.
