What to Consider About Memory Care in Kennewick

Alzheimer's disease, which is the leading cause of dementia, is on the rise in Washington. Currently, roughly 107,000 people in the state have Alzheimer's, and that number is projected to double by 2025. This disease is primarily diagnosed in seniors, which makes up nearly 13 percent of Kennewick's population of 82,000 people.

Memory care facilities in Washington are generally located within assisted living facilities that specialize in caring for those with dementia. Kennewick has one memory care facility, and there are two more in the nearby cities of Corvallis and Richland.

  • Washington does not have a state income tax, meaning that Kennewick seniors keep the entirety of their Social Security income as well as withdrawals from retirement accounts and disbursements from public and private pensions. This may allow for more money in the memory care budget.
  • While the overall cost of living in Kennewick is on par with the national average, residents pay about 20 percent less on medical care here than they do elsewhere in the country. This may appeal to seniors and families who have tight memory care budgets.
  • On a 100-point scale, where a low score indicates less crime, property crime in Kennewick is 46.7, which is several points higher than the national average of 38.1. The rate of violent crime here is markedly lower, however, rating 24.1 versus the national average of 31.1. This may provide peace of mind for families transitioning their loved ones to memory care here.
  • Kennewick is prone to extreme temperatures, with summer highs in the 90s and winter lows in the 20s. Families should ensure that the memory care facility they choose keeps residents indoors and secured when it's very hot or cold.
