Intro to Oregon Retirement Communities

When searching for a retirement community in Oregon it can be difficult to know where to start. Our advisors at Living Well start by gaining an understanding of your preferences. These include your budget, location preference, current and future healthcare requirements and your social preferences. Because we continually work with retirement communities, we know how they operate in detail, the quality of care offered, we evaluate and get to know the staff, taste the food, we understand how they charge for services and check the state site for any possible infractions. This is just a fraction of the background we do on each community. We tailor your personalized recommendations by touring and checking for availability at all the communities that meet your criteria. Our recommendations are based on the best fit for you and your loved one’s criteria.

As a starting point the following are some of our top-rated communities for clients looking for an Oregon retirement community.  To get the best price and a truly unbiased assessment it is important to work with a Living Well Advisor.
