The municipal area that contains Anchorage is geographically bigger than the entire state of Rhode Island, and there’s plenty for seniors to do in all that space. Anchorage sits at the head of Cook Inlet, which is part of one of the most productive watersheds in the world. In June and July, seniors can step over to Ship Creek, which runs straight through town, and pick up Alaska King and silver salmon as easily as sinking a hook in the water. Anchorage has been named the most tax-friendly city in America, partly because there’s no state income or sales tax and partly because the city keeps property taxes low.
Central Anchorage has a cluster of top-rated hospitals and medical centers that specialize in treating seniors and veterans, such as Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital on Bragaw St., next to Russian Jack Park. Seniors make up 9.5% of Anchorage’s 292,000 people, and the $1,000 to $2,000 annual payout from the Alaska Permanent Fund makes a nice supplement to seniors’ Social Security or pension payments.
Assisted living costs seniors in Anchorage an average of $6,000 a month, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This is somewhat less than the $6,300 seniors in Alaska pay in general, but it is far above the $4,000 national average for similar care.
