What to Consider About Memory Care in Everett

Facilities offering dementia care in Washington are overseen by the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration (ALTSA), a division of the Department of Social and Health Services. This body upholds state laws regarding seniors’ health and safety standards, performs inspections of facilities and publishes the Washington State Assisted Living Licensing Rules outline.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Everett

  • Everett has a typically Pacific Northwestern climate, with 42 inches of rain and about 4 inches of snow each year. This is just above the 38 inches of rain that is typical across the country, and it’s well below the 28 inches of snow that other parts of the United States average. Summers in this part of Washington are very mild, with average high temperatures in the low 70s.
  • Seniors in Everett pay around 20% less for health care costs than is common nationally. On a 100-point scale where the national average cost for health care is 100, Everett earns a rating of 80.1. Though the city has a relatively low ratio of physicians to residents, the city is close enough to Seattle for easy access to world-class health care.
  • Everett has a higher-than-average cost of living, though it’s still affordable compared to nearby cities. On a scale where the national cost of living is 100, Everett rates 126.6, suggesting that common expenses in town are about 26% higher than elsewhere. Compared to nearby Seattle, however, which rates 167.8, seniors on limited budgets may find Everett affordable.
  • Seniors who depend on a fixed income to make ends meet may be pleased to find out that Washington does not tax Social Security or other retirement income. In fact, the state has no income tax at all. While sales taxes in Everett are higher than the national average, any income a senior receives while living in Washington is free from state-level taxation.
  • Seniors aged 60 and over who live in Snohomish County can get free transportation to medical appointments, shopping trips, meal services and other essential locations around the area. The county program is open to seniors who have trouble using public transportation and who don’t use their own cars. Transportation may be aboard shuttles and vanpools, though volunteers often drive their own personal vehicles.
