What to Consider About Memory Care in Kennewick

Memory care facilities across the state of Washington are regulated and licensed by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. The department is responsible for ensuring facilities operate according to state laws, but can also provide helpful resources for family caregivers and assist seniors in finding a suitable provider.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Kennewick

 

  • Kennewick has 192 physicians per 100,000 people, slightly lower than the national average of 210. However, health care is very affordable at 19.3% below the U.S. average, so seniors can potentially save money on medical treatments and surgeries. The city is home to several highly-rated local medical amenities, such as Providence Center and Fresenius Kidney Care.
  • On a 100-point index measuring the overall cost of living, Kennewick comes in at 98.3, indicating that most goods and services are comparable to the national average. Health, utilities and transportation are significantly more affordable than the average, and the city has an income tax rate of 0%, helping ensure monthly budgets can go further.
  • Kennewick has a low violent crime rating of 16.3 on a 100-point scale, which is below the national average of 22.7 and continues to follow a downward trend. Property crimes rate at 7.6 points higher than the U.S. average, but this number has also decreased markedly over the past 20 years, and memory care facilities are typically not prime targets for break-ins.
  • The Dial-A-Ride curb-to-curb public transport service operated by Ben Franklin Transit offers easy travel throughout Kennewick for seniors with physical or mental disabilities. Individuals with mild dementia symptoms can travel with a companion using public transport, helping them maintain independence for longer.
  • Kennewick has cold winters and hot summers, but this doesn't mean it can't be a comfortable place to live. The region experiences only 8 inches of rain annually and 4 inches of snow, avoiding the need for seniors to tolerate extreme weather. Its Comfort Index of 7.5 out of 10 places it just ahead of the U.S. average of 7.
  • Air quality is typically rated as good in Kennewick, according to the U.S. Air Quality Index. However, wildfires are common throughout Washington, which can sometimes cause the air quality to drop temporarily. Staying indoors and using an air filter can generally mitigate much of the risk during these events, keeping seniors comfortable.
