Information About Independent Living Facility in Portland

Portland Independent LivingThe city of Portland, Oregon, is situated adjacent to the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. The "City of Roses" enjoys a marine west coast climate with warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. As of the 2010 census, the population density was 4,375 per square mile. Portland independent living, with a Consumer Price Index of 59, costs slightly more than half what it does in New York City. Portland started out small. When it was incorporated in February 1851, it consisted of a log cabin hotel, a newspaper called the "Weekly Oregonian" and a steam sawmill. Its population numbered around 800. Today, the population has grown to more than 2 million, making it the 23rd most populous metropolitan area in the United States.

Portland Attractions

Portland is known for its many microbreweries and microdistilleries as well as its passion for coffee and food carts. It is also the home of the Trail Blazers NBA basketball team and the Timbers Major League soccer team. Other attractions include the Oregon Zoo, which is world-famous for its highly successful herd of breeding Asian elephants. Residents may also visit the Garden of Awakening Orchids at Portland's Classical Chinese Garden, or visit the most authentic Japanese garden outside Japan itself, the aptly named Japanese Garden.

Portland Senior Activities

Well in tune with Portland independent living is Impact NW - inspiring hope and empowering independence. Its program for seniors and those living with disabilities affords clients the support and tools they need to be active, happy and healthy in their own homes.

Transportation, another important aspect of Portland independent living, falls under the auspices of the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
