Hawaii Senior Living Information
Hawaii is one the most beautiful places in the world to live and to retire. Though its cost of living is one of the highest in the county, many feel that the outstanding lifestyle makes the extra cost well worthwhile. The greatest number of living options including a wide range of Hawaii assisted living facilities, for senior citizens, are found in Hawaii's largest cities - Honolulu, Hilo and Waipahu - though the facilities in more remote areas can offer privacy and quiet seclusion, for those inclined to that kind of situation. Hawaii's state tax rate is one of the highest in the nation, largely because health care, education, and various social services are provided directly by the state, instead of by local government, as in all other states. Hawaii's overall crime rate is just a tad above the national average. And the climate - well, you can't ask for a more perfect tropical climate: summertime highs in the upper 80’s and wintertime lows in the mid-60’s.
