2023 Top Oregon Senior Living Communities

Whether you’re searching for a senior living home in Portland or in one of Oregon’s smaller cities, the state has a range of options. The transition to an elderly housing facility is a big decision. Not all providers are alike. What are the services you should be focusing on? Is assisted living enough, or is specialized care required? 

Perfect senior living facilities don’t exist. But there are many that will match your specific needs, and the search process does not need to be a stressful event. Our top 15 Oregon elderly adult communities are the state’s leading providers. If you do not see your city represented in this list, our senior living directory can help you to identify a community in your neighborhood. We are also available to guide you in your search and you may contact us at your convenience.  

How to Choose an Oregon Senior Living Community
Being close to loved ones is important. A senior living community that is hours away from family and friends is not ideal. But there are many other factors to consider as well. For example, proximity to your primary care physician or specialists and your hospital is very important. As is making sure the facility you choose has reliable transportation for monthly appointments. These are issues to consider when choosing a senior living community.

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in State

Rankings can be difficult, especially choosing a handful from hundreds or even thousands of quality providers. There is a lot to consider, and our rankings of the top Oregon elderly housing facilities took into account the reviews left on our website, reviews on reliable sites such as Facebook and Google. Feedback from citations or violations from the Oregon Department of Health were also taken into consideration. We assigned the providers a score from 1 to 5, and arrived at our highest ranked communities in Oregon.  

The cost of assisted living in Oregon is highly dependent on the senior’s needs. Nursing homes as well as memory care provide the highest level of care, and this can result in thousands of dollars more per month. By contrast, independent living is for active adults and is comparable to local rent. The average price for an assisted living community in Oregon is $2,400. This includes meals, basic amenities, and services.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Sheldon Park:

I am very, very happy with Sheldon Park’s memory care. I have walked in at random times and have always found my mother in a good situation. Either being treated well by staff or talking to other residents. She tells me about activities she has done or excursions she has made. They transport her in a bus to her appointments. Everyone I have dealt with has been helpful. Sometimes when I come in a staff member notices me and often knows where my mother is! It’s a bit of a drive for me to get to North Eugene, but very worth it. I doubt there is a better place in town.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Dallas Retirement Village:

My father Gordon Kunke was a resident at DRV for nearly three years. After recovering in Skilled Nursing from a fall suffered in his home, he moved into Assisted Living and ultimately spent the final two months of his life in the Memory Care unit. I cant overstate the appreciation I have for the continuum of services available at DRV, and for the kind and caring staff providing them. Dad was always treated with care and respect. I regularly observed staff going out of their way to be sure he had what he needed. My family is grateful for the efforts of everyone at DRV who made the last years of Dads life such a blessing.

Touchmark at Pilot Butte Bend

What residents and loved ones have to say about Touchmark at Pilot Butte:

When we first started looking into this option we thought it would be too expensive but when we sat own to pencil out the details we realized that it was actually quite affordable considering everything that is included. Our family was worried that we were looking at moving into an “old folks home” but once they saw The Alexander they wanted to move in themselves! With only one of us driving it is great to have doctors so close by and we enjoy not having to worry about caring for a big house.

As soon as we walked in the front door we realized that living here would be like being on a cruise. We’ve used pretty much everything except the pool. We love the Wally bar and especially enjoy happy hour and wine at a Wednesday. We can go to the bar and watch a game and have dinner which is a lot of fun, especially when all the regulars show up! The location of The Alexander is very convenient for our lifestyle, it is close to our doctors and emergency response are great because the hospital is so close. It is also nice to leave and be gone for a month and not have to worry about anything. Service has been great -maintenance is very responsive with repairs and we feel very secure living here. It is like one big happy family and we have never regretted making this move!

My New home here at the Ackerly is truly a wonderful place. The Staff makes you feel like family, so helpful with any request you might need.

Also, my thanks to Cary who helped me choose The Ackerly. She is amazing.The kitchen staff is definitely delicious and very attractively served. The food is served with class.
