    What to Consider About Memory Care in Yakima

    Yakima is located in the deserts of central Washington and has a population of about 93,700 with seniors at 13.7 percent. 3,622 of them have Alzheimer's disease, while 106,644 seniors across Washington have dementia or similar cognitive difficulties. Yakima's five memory care facilities help support seniors with cognitive impairments. 

    Assisted Living facilities that care for seniors with dementia in Washington are called dementia care facilities, and they must follow the Enhanced Adult Residential Care – Specialized Dementia Care contract. Administrators and caregivers in facilities are required to receive training on serving seniors with cognitive conditions. Also, seniors living in memory care environments receive care that is tailored to their hobbies and interests, with community activities that match them. The law also requires that the families of seniors are given some oversight over their care.

    • The cost of living in Yakima is nearly equal to the national average. Health care costs roughly 20 percent less, housing costs are 13 percent more and grocery costs are about eight percent higher. Finally, transportation and miscellaneous costs are a bit less expensive in Yakima than the national average.
    • Yakima has a high crime rate. Property crime is prevalent, with two to three times more crime than the national average. Violent crime is also notably worse. Outlying neighborhoods have less crime than central Yakima, so those areas are safer for seniors than living in the center of the city.
    • Washington is particularly welcoming for seniors when it comes to taxes. While the sales tax in the state is high, seniors will save money on their income; the state does not tax retirement or Social Security income. 
    • Yakima's weather has a comfort score of 71 out of 100, owing to its dry, hot desert conditions from spring through fall. Winters average 20 inches of snow per year; seniors will want to take care during the snowy season to avoid slips and falls.
