    What to Consider About Memory Care in Seattle

    Seattle is the largest city in Washington State, where the U.S. Census Bureau puts the city's official population at 724,000 residents. Over 110,000 people in Washington have Alzheimer's disease, and more still have some other form of dementia that requires a residential care option. Memory care is the most common choice for families looking for a place to keep a senior loved one safe and healthy.

    Seattle has at least 28 licensed memory care facilities either within its borders or close enough to easily visit loved ones. In these facilities, seniors with Alzheimer's disease and dementia are looked after by professionally trained staff, and the facilities work to keep their patients' doctors and families involved with their continuing care.

    • Weather in Seattle is famously rainy, although this reputation is somewhat exaggerated. In fact, the city gets just 34 inches of rain a year, with roughly 213 rain-free days to enjoy from late spring to early fall. Summer highs average 72 degrees Fahrenheit, and seniors with asthma may wish to stay indoors when the heat and humidity kick up allergens.
    • Seattle is a big city, so it shouldn't be a surprise that living there can get pricey for aging citizens in memory care. The cost of living in the city area can be 49 percent higher than the nationwide average. Seniors should expect to pay higher prices for health care and transportation than in other cities of the Northwest, such as Olympia or even neighboring Tacoma.
    • Crime in Seattle is a more serious issue than elsewhere in the state. Violent crime rates are double the Washington average, while property crimes are around 50 percent higher than the rest of the state. Washington is relatively peaceful, though, so Seattle's crime rate is still lower than the national average in most categories.
    • Seattle is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as University of Washington Medical Center and Virginia Mason Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
