    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kent

    Situated just to the south of Seattle, Kent is a large city with a population of just over 128,400. Individuals aged 65 and older make up 11 percent of the population, some of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Located in Washington state which has approximately 110,000 individuals with cognitive impairments, Kent has three memory care facilities located within the city limits and eight in nearby locations like Auburn and Federal Way.

    Memory care facilities in Kent and the state of Washington are regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Due to limited funding, the state contracts with a small number of assisted living facilities to provide a specialized dementia care program for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia who need residential care.

    • The city of Kent is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Valley Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Kent is 147.1, which is higher than the state average of 131 and higher than the national average of 100. This may make it difficult for seniors who are paying for memory care to make ends meet.
    • In the state of Washington, public and private pension income is not taxed, which leaves more money pay for memory care. However, the state does have an inheritance tax for an estate valued at more than two million.
    • Summer average highs in Kent are around 75 degrees, which makes the city ideal for those who cannot tolerate extreme heat. January average lows are around 36 and the city gets around five inches of snow per year. The city also gets about 42 inches of rain per year, which is slightly more than the national average of 39 inches.
