    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kitsap County

    Situated on the west shore of Puget Sound, Kitsap County, Washington, is home to more than 250,000 residents, over 13 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older, the age bracket in which Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other cognitive impairments typically set in. To support and care for these seniors, there are 10 memory care facilities in Kitsap County.

    Assisted Living Facilities, as memory care facilities are referred to in Kitsap County and the rest of Washington, are regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Aging and Long-term Support Administration Department.

    • Kitsap County has a cost of living rank of 126 compared to the national average of 100, with the variance driven by higher transportation and housing costs at 116 and 182, respectively. Seniors’ families with tight budgets might want to take the higher cost of living into consideration before relocating to the county.
    • On a 100-point scale where 1 represents the safest places to live, Kitsap County ranks 36.8 for violent crime and 37.5 for property crime, compared to the national averages of 31.1 and 31.8, respectively. Seniors and their families might want to ask the staff at prospective facilities about safeguards they have in place to keep residents safe.
    • Residents of Kitsap County enjoy a cooler climate. Summer highs reach 75 degrees, with winter lows only dropping to 36. The county receives 32 inches of rain per year compared to the U.S. average of 39 and only sees 153 sunny days annually, more than 50 days less than the national average of 205. Seniors who enjoy spending supervised time outdoors might not enjoy the cloudy, rainy days the county has to offer.
    • Kitsap County seniors may benefit from Washington’s tax laws. Washington doesn’t apply taxes to retirement income including pensions, social security benefits, and retirement savings account income. Seniors on fixed incomes may find that living in the county allows them to have more money to put toward their facility costs.
