    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kailua

    Kailua is a town on the island of Oahu in Hawaii that was named after the two lagoons on the island that run through town. This beach community has a mid-sized population, of which 18.2 percent are seniors. The senior population is served by one assisted living facility in town and nine in the surrounding areas. ALFs are licensed by the Hawaii Department of Health, Office of Health Care Assurance and are defined as facilities that provide housing plus meals, health care and personal services. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kailua

    • Seniors on a budget may have difficulty living in Kailua as the cost of living is 154.3 percent higher than the U.S. average. Housing makes up most of this percentage. However, transportation and grocery costs are also above average. Health care is slightly below the national median. 
    • Active seniors who enjoy the outdoors may benefit from Kailua’s comfortable year-round climate. The city scores a 97 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index, and the temperatures here reach highs of 85 degrees Fahrenheit in July and lows of only 66 degrees in January. Rainfall averages around 57 inches per year.  
    • Seniors who don’t drive can hop on The Bus which provides routes around town with reduced fares for seniors over 65. OHE Transportation Services provides door-to-door transportation for seniors to medical appointments, social visits, errands and shopping.  
    • Hawaii is a moderately tax friendly state as it exempts Social Security benefits and public pension income from taxation. However, income from retirement savings accounts and private pensions are fully taxed which may leave less money for seniors to put towards assisted living.
