    What to Consider About Memory Care in Honolulu

    Honolulu's relaxed island lifestyle makes it a popular retirement destination among seniors; in fact, more than 17 percent of the city's population is 65 years of age or older. In a state where an estimated 28,000 seniors have been diagnosed with some form of dementia or Alzheimer's disease, there's a substantial need for memory care in cities like Honolulu, where such a large portion of the population is made up of senior citizens.

    Seniors in Honolulu can choose from two memory care facilities that provide residential care and support to those who've been diagnosed with dementia disorders, such as Huntington's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease. Many of these facilities, which are officially known as assisted living facilities, provide multiple levels of care, in particular, basic assisted living services, as provisions are the same for both levels of care are the same in Hawaii.

    The Hawaii State Department of Health is responsible for overseeing adherence to rules and regulations that are in place for the state's assisted living facilities. 

    • The American Lung Association rated Honolulu's air the second cleanest in the country, meaning the air quality poses very little risk to seniors and those who've been diagnosed with medical conditions such as a respiratory illness or cardiovascular disease. 
    • Crime rates in Honolulu are much higher than throughout the rest of the state. There are 217 crimes per square mile each year in Honolulu while the state average is only 49 crimes per square mile. While touring memory care facilities, seniors and their families should inquire about security measures that are in place to protect residents.
    • The overall cost of living in Honolulu is more than double the U.S. average. If seniors and their families have limited funds available to pay for memory care that might be a consideration for this expensive area.
    • The Honolulu area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care, such as The Queen's Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
