What to Consider About Assisted Living in Moses Lake

The Aging & Long-Term Support Administration department of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services issues licenses to assisted living facilities in the state. The department regulates, monitors and inspects facilities. Inspectors conduct unannounced inspections and have the authority to remove a license from facilities not adhering to the department’s conditions.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Moses Lake

  • The average cost of living index for Moses Lake, according to Sperling’s Best Places, is 85.3. This is significantly below the state and national averages, which are 118.7 and 100, respectively. At 87.9, the city’s health cost index is slightly above Washington’s average (although still below the U.S. average), while the transportation index is far below either. Consequently, seniors in assisted living may find Moses Lake a very affordable place to live.
  • Figures published by Neighborhood Scout show property crime in Moses Lake to be above average. The chances of being a victim are 1 in 25, compared to the state average of 1 in 37. Violent crime figures are also above the state average, although below the national average. Seniors concerned about crime should know that Moses Lake’s hotspots tend to be the city center and Cascade Valley, while neighborhoods to the north experience less crime.
  • Despite its more northerly location, Moses Lake enjoys one of the best climates in the region. Although winter temperatures typically fall to a chilly 24 degrees, they regularly sit at around 87 degrees in summer. Snowfall, averaging 21 inches annually, is still below the national average. Rainfall is low, typically 29 inches below the national annual average of 38 inches.

  • Moses Lake has one hospital, Samaritan Healthcare, which serves patients throughout the Columbia Basin. It includes an emergency department and intensive care unit. Medicare beneficiaries may be interested to know that 37 family doctors serve in the small city. For treatments not available locally, seniors typically travel to medical facilities in Yakima and Richland. 
  • Although the water quality in Moses Lake is a little below the U.S. average, the area’s air quality is significantly higher than average, which is beneficial for seniors with respiratory issues.
