    What to Consider About Memory Care in Oak Harbor

    Located on the northern end of Whidbey Island in the state of Washington, the city of Oak Harbor has a relatively small population of 2,700 seniors. There are two memory care facilities in the city that are capable of caring for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

    Assisted Living Facilities, the official designation for these memory care facilities, are licensed and regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Oak Harbor has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness with the nearest major hospital providing brain health and dementia care located in Coupeville.

    • Oak Harbor is a safe community with a violent crime rating of 14, which is 17 points below the national average. The property crime rating, 34, is 25 points below the state average. These statistics may give families peace of mind regarding the safety of their loved ones.
    • The state of Washington does not collect income tax of any kind. This means seniors in Oak Harbor get to keep more of their social security, pensions and other retirement income. These tax policies may make it easier for families in the state to afford memory care.
    • The cost of living in Oak Harbor is 13 points higher than the national average of 100. While housing costs are very high, 74 points above the U.S. average, utilities and healthcare are relatively cheap.

    • The air quality in Oak Harbor gets a score of 72 on a scale of one to 100. This is 14 points higher than the average for the United States.
