What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kailua

Hawaii regulates assisted living facilities in Kailua through the Department of Health, which houses the Office of Health Care Assurance. The department outlines minimum operating standards all facilities must follow related to residents’ rights, housing features, care planning and staffing. It also conducts regular inspections to monitor conditions and the quality of care facilities provide.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kailua

  • Adventist Health Castle sits within Kailua proper and serves assisted living residents through a variety of emergency, urgent, primary and specialty care services. This 160-bed facility has over 300 doctors and medical specialists on staff who administer services, such as heart care, cancer care and radiology. It can also help older adults draft advance directives.
  • The cost of living in Kailua surpasses the national benchmark by about 56%, which may provide financial challenges for prospective assisted living residents with limited budgets. Although health care costs compare favorably with rates in a typical U.S. city, coming in 23% below national norms, housing and utility expenses run considerably higher. While this drives up the cost of assisted living, many facilities have all-inclusive pricing to help seniors determine whether care costs fit their budgets.
  • Kailua reports about 17 crimes per 1,000 people in a given year, with property-related offenses accounting for the majority of cases. Both property and violent crime occur at lower rates here than in the state and nation as a whole, and rates align with norms in other cities with similar population sizes. For prospective assisted living residents with safety concerns, neighborhoods around the Marine Corps base tend to have less crime, as does the Kalaheo Hillside/Aikahi Park region.
  • Seniors in Hawaii pay income taxes of up to 11% on withdrawals from retirement savings accounts. However, they don’t pay income taxes on public or private pension income or Social Security benefits, nor do they pay the state sales tax on prescription drug purchases, which can help them afford assisted living costs in Kailua.
  • On the AARP Livability Index, Kailua’s score exceeds the typical U.S. city score by 10 points, coming in at 58 for its amenities and benefits for seniors. The local preventable hospitalization rate of 19.9 indicates access to outpatient care, and the exceptional air and water quality support seniors' health, making the city a prime option for older adults managing health conditions.
