Assisted Living Directory has prepared this page to help families, seniors, and caregivers to research the many assisted living options throughout the State of Oregon.
The facilities listed here may all be contacted directly and safely.
One of the primary places that families can find information on aging issues, housing and available services and programs is through the Oregon State Unit on Aging. This site is "...is dedicated to making it easier for seniors to get the help they need to support their well-being and maintain themselves in the community for as long as possible with independence, dignity and choice through the delivery of services funded by the Older Americans Act."
This Unit on Aging works directly with Oregon's 17 agencies on aging to coordinate and provide a comprehensive array of programs and services (more about what an agency on aging does) including, but not limited to: Caregiver information and support; advocacy; food and nutrition for seniors; housing; transportation services and information relevant to elder abuse, neglect, and how to report and handle instances should they occur.
In addition, the Aging and Disability Resource Connection of Oregon (ADRC) offers a very good, unbiased facilities search, which users may enter a zip code or county, and they type of facility they are looking for (i.e. 'assisted living') and for most searches, a solid list of facilities will be displayed.
