Residential care facilities and memory care

The Licensed Long-term Care Settings search tool provides comprehensive information about any licensed care facility in Oregon. This site offers general information such as owner/administrator and contact information, summaries of annual inspections, details about substantiated abuse or neglect allegations, and any formal regulatory action in place due to non-compliance. This tool does not provide information about current vacancies at any facility; please contact the facility directly to inquire about availability.
