Guide to Senior Living in Hawaii
Located in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 2,000 miles from the coast of California, Hawaii is the only state outside of North America. Consisting of 137 islands spanning 1,500 miles, Hawaii is home to about 1.4 million people, and 18.4% are aged 65 or older. The elderly population in the state is growing at a rate of 3.6% per year, and predictions show that by 2045, one in four seniors in The Aloha State will be aged 85 or older.
The cost of living in Hawaii is relatively high compared to costs in many mainland states, so seniors in Hawaii can expect to pay care costs that are above the national average. For instance, in Hawaii, the average monthly cost of assisted living care is $4,375, which is $324 higher than the U.S. average. Seniors who need help covering senior living costs can find in-depth information on local, state and federal programs in this guide.
