What to Consider About Assisted Living in Washington

Named after President George Washington, Utah’s south-central city of Washington is a fast-growing suburb of St. George. Retirees flock to this beautiful area to enjoy warm winters, causing a population explosion over the last decade. Washington's population is currently about 27,700 residents, nearly 18% of whom are aged 65 and over.

To support this large number of older adults who may find they need aid with the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as housekeeping, bathing and shopping, Washington offers two assisted living facilities (ALFs). Seniors have another 11 communities to choose from in nearby Saint George. The Utah Department of Health, Facility Licensing and Certification oversees the ALFs in Washington and the rest of the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Washington

 

  • Seniors seeking a dry, sunny climate find it in Washington, where it rains on average 10 inches annually and the sun shines for 255 days each year. Summers, however, are hot with a July high that averages 101 degrees.
  • Washington has an array of resources for seniors, including the Washington County Council on Aging, an organization that operates three senior centers in St. George, Hurricane and Enterprise, where residents find exercise and art classes, health screenings, computer instruction and transportation.
  • The Washington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Dixie Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The state of Utah taxes Social Security retirement income. However, the state still made the No. 10 slot on Kiplinger’s 2018 list of best states for retirement, primarily due to the good health of its 65-and-over population and the abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities.
  • The American Lung Association grades Washington City and all of Washington County a “C” for ozone pollution and an “A” for particle pollution. Seniors with heart or lung conditions who enjoy outdoor activities should limit their exposure on bad pollution days.
  • Security-minded seniors may be relieved to learn that crime rates in Washington are lower than the national averages. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being high violent crime, Washington rates an 11.4, half of the 22.7 national average. The city’s property crime score of 31.4 is also lower than the U.S. average of 35.4.
