The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Bend, OR

Bend is a small metropolis located in central Oregon, east of the Cascades and at almost exactly the line where the Ponderosa pine forest gives way to the sagebrush desert of the eastern part of the state. Bend is a college town of 97,600 people, 16% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over, where the crime rate is just half the national average and healthcare costs can be as much as 7% below the national average. The city of Bend Fire Department operates a Safety Program for Seniors (SOS), which assesses seniors' homes for fire hazards and fall prevention issues, helping them live more safely on their own. Seniors in Bend can spend a lot of free time outdoors, hiking and fishing in the average 82 degree summer days, or they can stay indoors during the snowy winter and watch videos from the last Blockbuster outlet in the world.

Assisted living in Bend costs local seniors an average of $4,199 a month, according to the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This is well under the average monthly cost of similar care in other Oregon cities. Assisted living in Portland $4,998, for example, while in Eugene seniors pay an average of $4,325 a month for assisted living.
