What to Consider About Memory Care in Spokane Valley

The Residential Care Services office of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration regulates memory care facilities in Spokane Valley and across Washington. The office promotes residents’ rights and supports their well-being through facility licensing, periodic inspections and dispute resolution services.     

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Spokane Valley

 

  • As a suburb of Spokane, Spokane Valley is among Dementia Friendly America’s network of communities, meaning the city is actively engaged in becoming more accessible and supportive for people with memory loss conditions. Community members also aim to raise public awareness and educate impacted families about dementia-related matters.
  • Property crimes are more prevalent in Spokane Valley than in many other parts of the country, with the city scoring 74 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4. However, memory care communities offer security measures and 24/7 on-site staff, greatly increasing residents’ safety. Seniors and their loved ones may feel further reassured by the low violent crime rate of 15.2, which is 7.5 points less than the national average.
  • While Spokane Valley’s overall cost of living is about 3.1% higher than the U.S. average, locals pay significantly less than those in many other parts of the state. Additionally, transportation and health care costs are substantially lower than national and state norms. Low-income seniors may qualify for financial support through various Aging and Long-Term Support Administration programs, including the Specialized Dementia Care Program.
  • Spokane Valley seniors may be able to stretch their retirement funds further thanks to the state’s lack of income tax. Indeed, Washington is considered tax-friendly toward older adults.
  • With 241 doctors per 100,000 people, more than the U.S. average of 210, and lower-than-average medical costs, Spokane Valley offers easy access to affordable health care. Within city limits, MultiCare Valley Hospital provides comprehensive care across many medical specialties, and 12 miles away, Providence Holy Family Hospital ranks highly for geriatrics.

Paying for Memory Care in Spokane Valley

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

In Spokane Valley, memory care averages $5,844 per month, but costs differ depending on the services and amenities provided.

Conversely, Walla Walla has some of the state’s most affordable memory care fees, $1,830 lower than in Spokane Valley.
