Oregon is the first State to adopt a specific philosophy for assisted living. It states: Assisted living… is a program that promotes resident self-direction and participation in decisions that emphasize choice, dignity, privacy, individuality, independence and homelike surroundings. All Assisted Living Communities/Facilities in Oregon are licensed by the State of Oregon.
All individual apartments within the building/facility are fully self-contained where six or more seniors with disabilities may reside. The facility offers and coordinates a range of personal services. Staff is available on a 24-hour basis to meet each senior’s specific care needs/ADL’s (Activities of Daily Living), such as: personal hygiene, mobility, eating, dressing, toileting, and behavior management.
