    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Orchard

    Port Orchard is a waterfront community that features views of the Olympic Mountains and access to numerous marinas. The city has just over 14,000 residents, and about 15 percent are seniors. 

    In spite of its relatively small size, Port Orchard is home to five assisted living facilities. There are more than a dozen more facilities in nearby cities like Seattle and Bainbridge Island. These facilities are divided into three categories, including community-based residential facilities, residential care apartment complexes and adult family homes, and they are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Orchard

    • Washington does not pose a state income tax, meaning that Port Orchard seniors hold on to the entirety of all retirement income. This may leave more money for assisted living expenses. 
    • The Port Orchard area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Bremerton.
    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Port Orchard range between 36 degrees and 78 degrees. The warmest month of the year is August when temperatures are in the upper 70s, and the coolest month of the year is January when highs are in the low 50s. The city's comfortable year-round climate may appeal to seniors who enjoy outdoor activities.  
    • While Port Orchard's overall crime rate is notably higher than the national average, most of the crime that takes place in this city is property related. On a 100-point scale, with a higher score indicating more crime, the city's property crime rate is 80.5, versus the national average of 35.4. However, the violent crime rate is just a few points higher than the national average at 27.7. Seniors researching local assisted living facilities may want to find a facility that has security features like high-security locks and alarm systems.
    • The air quality in Port Orchard is average, which may be a concern for seniors with conditions like COPD or heart disease. The American Lung Association gave Kitsap County a C for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution. 
    • The overall cost of living in Port Orchard is about 20 percent higher than the national average but about 10 percent lower than the statewide average, which may be a consideration for seniors with tight retirement budgets. Health care expenses are about 15 percent below the national average, however, which may offset other living expenses.
