What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Orchard

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, regulates assisted living facilities in Port Orchard and the rest of the state. It enforces rules related to staffing, housing requirements and scope of care through a stringent licensing process and regular check-ins. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Orchard

  • Port Orchard is a relatively cost-effective place to obtain medical care, with fees for services such as hospitalizations and doctor’s office visits coming in about 17% below national norms. There are no hospitals in the city proper, but St. Michael Medical Center – Bremerton is located just 3 miles from the city.
  • Washington doesn’t impose a state income tax, making it among the more favorable states in the nation for seniors living on fixed incomes. Because seniors only pay federal income taxes on their retirement income, they may have more money to put toward assisted living expenses in Port Orchard.
  • The American Lung Association gives Port Orchard an F for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution levels. While this may be a concern for those managing lung or heart conditions, assisted living residents have access to indoor recreational activities and amenities on high-particle days.
  • Port Orchard’s weather is pleasant throughout the year, making it a prime retirement option for active seniors. Summers are comfortable with high temperatures in the mid-70s and winters are mild with daytime temperatures in the mid-40s, and the city gets just 4 inches of annual snowfall.
  • On a 100-point crime index that assigns higher ratings to cities with more criminal activity, Port Orchard rates 27.7 for violent crime and 80.5 for property-related offenses. By comparison, the nationwide respective norms are 22.7 and 35.4. Residential care may be a good option for older adults who have safety concerns.
