    What to Consider About Memory Care in Tacoma

    The large city of Tacoma has over 200,000 residents and a senior community of nearly 13 percent of the population. The city is among the largest in Washington, where the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services reports that more than 100,000 people have dementia.

    The Tacoma area has 13 memory care facilities, with three in the city and 10 more in the surrounding region. Memory care facilities in Tacoma are situated within assisted living facilities that specialize in dementia care. These facilities are licensed and monitored by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration.

    • Washington has no state income tax, meaning that Tacoma seniors do not pay taxes on their Social Security benefits, pensions or withdrawals from retirement accounts.
    • The Tacoma area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as St. Joseph Medical Center and Tacoma General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
      • While living costs in Tacoma are about 20 percent higher than the national median, they are about 10 percent lower than the state median, making the city relatively affordable for seniors. Seniors pay about 20 percent less on medical expenses here than they would elsewhere in the country, which may help those with chronic conditions like Alzheimer's disease afford specialized care.
      • Sperling's Comfort Index, which scores the comfort of a city's climate based on factors like year-round temperature and humidity levels, rates Tacoma a 79 out of 100 possible points. This is compared to the national average comfort index of 54. Summer highs in this city are in the mid-70s, while winter lows are in the mid-30s. This city may be ideal for seniors who prefer a mild year-round climate.
