Page Reviewed / Updated – July 19, 2023

With a population exceeding 97,000 residents, Yakima is home to at least 15% of seniors aged 65 and older, many of whom are grappling with Alzheimer’s disease. Multiple parks and walking trails within the city and along the Yakima River provide early-stage dementia care residents opportunities to enjoy ample sunny days and a pleasant climate. The centrally located Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital and a cost of living less than the national average add to the city’s appeal to seniors.

Seniors experiencing memory loss need enhanced care that goes beyond the basic level of support provided by assisted living. Consequently, a memory care community involves specially trained staff, extra safety precautions and special programming to meet the unique needs of dementia residents. This increased level of care typically adds 25% to the average cost of assisted living. In Yakima, memory care costs $6,219 per month. Although this is higher than the national average of $5,625 per month, it is significantly less expensive than the state’s monthly average of $7,500.

Yakima offers several long-term care options for seniors experiencing Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Memory care offers a caring, safe environment and specialized programming and therapies provided by highly trained staff. Read on to learn about some of the best memory care facilities available in Yakima.
