Senior Living in Hawaii

Hawaiians use Aloha to say "hello" and "goodbye." Aging citizens who say "aloha" to life in an assisted living community in Hawaii retire in a land of lush tropical rainforest and vast volcanic fields. Hawaii's 1.5 million inhabitants live on island paradises in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It became America's 50th state in 1959.

The isolated location and unique history of the Hawaiian Island chain has given the place a special collection of flora and fauna that sets it apart from the other 49 states. Hawaii's state bird is the Nēnē, or the "Hawaiian goose," and the state flower is the Pua aloalo, or "yellow hibiscus." Both of these are genuine symbols of the state, being almost unique to Hawaii's environment.

Aging citizens in Hawaii don't have to be lonely. The state is extremely popular for seniors from other parts of the country on vacation, and it's a rare cruise ship in the Pacific that doesn't schedule at least a brief visit to a Hawaiian port. Hawaii's islands are relatively young, with the Big Island being the youngest of all. Each of the islands formed over a hot spot in the Earth's crust and eroded into the paradise seen today. That makes the westernmost islands the oldest in the chain, with the most highly developed rain forest environment, where active seniors can plan hikes on stunning natural trails. Aging citizens on the Big Island can take a day trip to the southeastern coast near the active volcanic fields and watch their island growing right before their eyes.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a level of care that provides seniors with basic care and room and board, but stops short of providing medical attention. Seniors get help with activities of daily living (ADLs) in assisted living in Hawaii, which is also sometimes known as adult day care, long-term care or intermediate care.

What Does Assisted Living Cost in Hawaii?

In Hawaii, the average monthly cost of assisted living is $4,250, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.

Hawaiian seniors can usually find assisted living accommodations for $4,250 a month. This is somewhat higher than the national median of $3,750, though in-home health aides in the state typically cost $4,957, which potentially makes assisted living a cost-saving measure for many seniors and their families.

How is Assisted Living Regulated in Hawaii?

Hawaii licenses its assisted living communities through the State of Hawaii Department of Health Office of Health Care Assurance. Seniors and their families can contact this office for reports on specific assisted living communities or to lodge concerns and complaints. The state investigates these claims and conducts inspections to ensure a uniform level of health and safety, as well as a continuous quality of care.

How is Assisted Living in Hawaii Affected by Laws and Taxes?

Hawaii is a mixed bag for seniors who are concerned about the taxes on their retirement income. Some types of income, notably Social Security and state pensions, are entirely tax exempt on the state level, though private pensions and other types of retirement income are fully taxable. Seniors with significant yearly income from IRAs and 401(k) investments, in excess of $48,000 a year, could pay up to 8.25 percent on their income.

Politics in Hawaii

Politically, Hawaii started out as a kingdom on its own, unlike any of the other 49 states, which were either territories or standalone republics before joining the United States. After occupation by the Spanish Empire, which ended in 1898, when the United States took the chain in the Spanish-American War, Hawaii's institutions developed in a unique way that has left its mark on the state's current institutions. Hawaii's constitution, for example, explicitly cites "Divine Guidance" as a founding precept, along with "Hawaiian Heritage."

The state capital is Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu, also the site of the naval base at Pearl Harbor. The government is divided into three branches, with a senate and an assembly, and the state judiciary closely resembles the federal court system. The state Office of Elections works to make voting as easy as possible for seniors, with extensive support for absentee and early voting, as well as for walk-in registration and other last-minute options.

Hawaii is a reliable blue state in national politics. Hawaii's four members of the Electoral College are generally pledged to the Democratic candidate, while members of the state's congressional delegation tend to be the same.

Fun Facts

  • Hawaii is one of only two states in the Union (apart from California) that naturally grows coffee and sugar. Hawaii's coffee is often known as Kona, and it's generally regarded as a particularly high-quality and strong strain that's frequently added to other coffee mixes to improve their quality. Seniors in Hawaii can start their days with pure Kona coffee, grown and roasted locally, and sweeten it with sugar that has likewise been grown within a few miles of home.
  • Measured from east to west, Hawaii is 1,500 miles across. That's approximately the distance between El Paso, TX, and the Canadian border. Only Alaska, which is 2,400 miles across, exceeds Hawaii in width. This can make getting from island to island challenging for seniors who have trouble flying, but multiple ferries a day serve cross-island traffic.
  • Hawaii has its own time zone, HST, which is offset quite a bit from the other states. Aging citizens with family on the mainland have to adjust for phone calls, since Hawaii not only runs three hours behind California for half the year, it also doesn't observe Daylight Savings Time, which puts it out of phase with the other states for the other half.
