    What to Consider About Memory Care in Gig Harbor

    Gig Harbor has a relatively comfortable climate and only receives an average of two inches of snow annually, so senior residents can easily enjoy ample time outdoors. Approximately 110,000 people in Washington state have Alzheimer’s disease, including those residing in Gig Harbor, where 25.3 percent of the city's population is over the age of 65. To accommodate seniors who need memory care services, there are three facilities in Gig Harbor and 13 in surrounding areas such as Tacoma and University Place. In Gig Harbor and the rest of Washington state, some assisted living facilities specialize in caring for residents with dementia, with special requirements in place for the staff and facility grounds.  

    • The cost of living in Gig Harbor ranks 151.6, which is higher than the U.S. average of 100. Family members who handle finances for seniors in memory care may find the elevated cost of living reflected in areas such as housing, groceries and health care.

    • Despite the high living cost, Gig Harbor and the rest of Washington is tax-friendly for seniors because there’s no state income tax. Any income from Social Security benefits, pension payments and withdrawals from retirement accounts is exempt from taxation.

    • The violent crime rate in Gig Harbor is 20.9, lower than the national rate of 31.1. Although the property crime rate is higher at 72.5 as compared to the U.S. average of 38.1. Of course, memory care facilities have security measures in place to keep residents safe but it's a good to inquire about them for peace of mind. 

    • Gig Harbor is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as MultiCare Gig Harbor Medical Park, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
