Cost of assisted living in Oregon

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Oregon is approximately $5,600, according to A Place for Mom’s internal data from its brand partners. This amount is higher than a national median monthly cost of assisted living across the country at about $4,800.[01]

It’s a great idea to look at median costs instead of average costs when considering assisted living in Oregon. It’s important to understand that medians normally aren’t influenced by extreme values, such as luxury assisted living communities in Portland or budget-conscious assisted living communities in rural areas.

It’s normal for prices for assisted living in Oregon to vary. The lowest monthly costs run approximately $3,700 while the most expensive site at about $7,600 per month.[01]

There are a variety of factors that drive the cost of assisted living. Typically, pricing considers the level of care required by a resident. The following factors may also play a role in pricing for assisted living in Oregon:

  • Number of occupants in a room
  • Room size
  • Services provided by the community
  • Amenities available on-site
  • Proximity to a major metro

Assisted living communities tend to cost less in more rural areas of Oregon than in higher population density areas, such as Salem or Eugene. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the prices of assisted living in Oregon, it’s OK. There are a variety of ways to pay for assisted living. In fact, some older Oregonians may qualify for Medicaid or Medicare to help cover the expenses related to assisted living in the state.

Assisted living requirements and regulations in Oregon

The Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) offers licensure and oversight for assisted living in Oregon. Facilities generally must follow the state requirements outlined in Oregon’s Assisted Living Rules and Regulations to be licensed.[02] ODHS typically conducts inspections of assisted living facilities periodically.The ODHS Licensed Long-term Care Setting Search may give information about a specific community’s inspection report or other details.

The Oregon rules and regulations outline the rights of residents of assisted living facilities and outline the guidelines for assisted living staff members. For example, assisted living communities in Oregon generally do the following:

  • Adopt a resident’s bill of rights
  • Provide services to residents in manner that protects their dignity and personal privacy

State licensing in Oregon

We developed a system to rate each state on how easy – or difficult – it is to find important assisted living records and reports, and compiled tips to help you in your search.

States with the most transparent records allow you to look up important information about each assisted living facility online, including inspections, complaints, survey results, violations, capacity, and whether the facility accepts Medicaid.

Access to Oregon assisted living records: High

Public access to assisted living records and reports for the state of Oregon is high. Key findings that informed this rating include:

  • Oregon has generally accessible assisted living records but was marked down on some criteria, including for inspections that occur on a less than annual basis (every 2 years).
  • Oregon has increased in ratings due to the list of licenses being searchable and enforcement actions being listed in the same place as licensed communities.
  • Enforcement actions can be viewed, but for greater detail a record request must be placed with Oregon Department of Human Services.

How to look up Oregon assisted living licenses and records

  • Visit Oregon’s Assisted Living and Residential Care Facilities for a basic list of licensed communities.
  • The Oregon Department of Human Services website also has searchable database of licensed assisted living communities, and the database provides information on inspections and enforcement actions.
  • Inspections and violations for assisted living communities in Multnomah County can be found on the Multnomah County website.

How we arrived at our Oregon rating

We developed a standard methodology for state data collection and evaluation, and we based our rating primarily on the objective, state-specific accessibility criteria outlined in these questions:

  1. Are licensed assisted living communities listed online in any form? Yes
  2. If Yes to #1, is the information updated frequently? Yes
  3. If Yes to #1, is the list of licensed communities searchable? Yes
  4. Does the state post inspections, complaints, survey results, or violations online? Yes
  5. If Yes to #4, is the information updated frequently? (within 90 days) Yes
  6. If Yes to #2 and #4, is the enforcement information included in the same place as licensed communities? Yes
  7. If Yes to #4 and No to #6, are violations and inspections searchable at all? No
  8. Is information about special licensing for care shown? No or N/A
  9. Is capacity shown? Yes
  10. Are payment types shown (e.g., Medicaid, private pay)? Yes
  11. Is the administrator/contact name shown? Yes
  12. Can the state fine a facility? Yes
  13. What is the frequency of inspections? Every 24 months
  14. Does the website include pricing of facilities? No
