As Seen In:

If you are looking for an assisted living facility located in a city with a wide range of care options and personality, then the Seattle metro area may be your ideal choice! Seattle — Washington State's largest city — boasts panoramic views of not only the Puget Sound, but also of the Olympic and Cascade mountains. It is a city that benefits from well-planned community centers, parks, and all of the cultural amenities of a big city while still keeping its distinctive neighborhoods intact.

Choices abound for seniors, whether you are looking for independent living, senior apartments, in-home residential care or a progressive health care plan. Those seeking CCRC facilities will also find multiple options. With 35 hospitals in the greater Seattle metropolitan area, health care options are plentiful and feature some of the top-ranked facilities in the nation including University of Washington Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center, Virginia Mason Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center and Group Health. There is a sophisticated network of clinics associated with each hospital offering services throughout the Seattle area including on-site visits at many of the elderly care facilities.

The cost of senior living in Seattle is approximately 4% – 15% higher than the median cost for the rest of Washington State depending on the type of care you are seeking. A one-bedroom in an assisted living facility is $4,500 per month, while a private room in area nursing homes averages $9,125 per month. With that said, there is no state income tax in Washington and there are special programs for seniors that help reduce overall living costs. The Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens advocates and provides direct services to seniors ranging from promoting healthy aging initiatives to hosting senior computer classes and special events.

Seattle seniors can also experience the city's rich cultural offerings with special programming at institutions such as the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Symphony, Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Opera, and at a large assortment of equity theaters. The Seattle Metro system offers reliable and well-connected public transit options for seniors electing independent living and/or in-home residential care options, and most assisted facilities offer transportation options including both wheelchair transport and supervised group outings. The population of Seattle is one of the most educated and informed in the country and is served by two state-of-the-art library systems: Seattle Public Library and King County Public Library; both offering loans by mail, internet services, and a variety of lifelong learning programs. Various Asian ethnic groups will find community programs, museums and events in the International District, just blocks away from downtown Seattle.

Assisted Living in Seattle

Assisted living might be the right first step if you or your loved one needs help with things like bathing or meal prep. Assisted living facilities in Seattle help seniors with these and other activities of daily living. You’ll get assistance with laundry, bathing, dressing, meal prep, and more. Some places provide transportation, group activities, and other amenities too.

In Seattle, it’s not hard to find an assisted living facility. There’s a wide variety spread throughout this large city. Some are located right in the downtown area while others reside in the suburbs. Seniors can choose between single rooms, single-room apartments, and multi-room apartments. Help is available, but this is not a nursing home. The goal of assisted living is to keep you safe and independent as you age.

You can find affordable assisted living options in Seattle, but most are on the pricy side. The median monthly cost of assisted living in Seattle is $5,250. That’s significantly more than the national median cost of $3,750. This price is for a one-bedroom apartment with basic services. Look to nearby towns for cheaper options. You can still enjoy what Seattle has to offer without the added cost.

Anything above basic care costs more too. Think you’ll need memory care or medical services? Find out the additional costs ahead of time.

Amenities and Services for Seniors

Need some extra help? You will find it at ALFs. Assisted living facilities all offer the same basic services like bathing, dressing, and meal prep assistance. Some in Seattle go above and beyond. You can find Seattle assisted living facilities with free transportation, communal space, gated green space, and full-time activity directors. Meal plans and on-site restaurants are popular too.

Most Seattle facilities can keep up as you age. You’ll have access to visiting physicians and on-site therapy services in some locations. Plus, memory care services are common too.

Finding Assisted Living

Use our zip code search feature to find the right Seattle ALF for you. Read through provider details until you see one that you like. Keep in mind that the greater Seattle area has a lot to offer too, so consider broadening your search.

Memory Care in Seattle

Memory starting to fade? Is your loved one more distant or forgetful these days? Memory care may be the right next step. Memory care can help strengthen seniors’ memory and slow the progression of memory-related diseases. What you may not know is that anyone struggling in the memory department can receive memory care. It’s not just for seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Most Seattle senior living communities offer memory care. This means seniors can stay in assisted living and still get proper memory care. There’s no need to lose your independence and move to a separate facility. Memory care usually costs extra, but some places are all inclusive.

Purpose of Memory Care

Dementia and memory loss cause frustration and anxiety. Memory care helps slow the progression of dementia and reduce that stress. Plus, it keeps seniors safe and can be enjoyable. Memory care is a combination of brain training, wellness activities, and creating routines.

Services Offered with Memory Care

Specialized memory care facilities take care of everything. Need help getting ready in the morning? Trained staff will help you with bathing, meal prep, and more. Need medical attention? Most facilities host on-site physician visits, licensed nurse services, and physical therapy.

Memory care is fun and social too. Seattle memory care facilities have resident clubs, physical fitness facilities, group outings, and communal rooms. Plus, they offer nutritious food and snacks.

Best of all, memory care facilities provide caregivers with peace of mind. If your loved one is prone to wandering, they will stay safe. Seattle memory care communities have twenty-four seven security, alarm doors, and gated grounds.

Nursing Homes in Seattle

Nursing homes are a step up from assisted living, but a step below hospital care. Seniors with a chronic illness or disability may benefit from a nursing home community.  These facilities offer twenty-four seven medical supervision, medical equipment, and registered nurses on staff.

Seattle has a variety of nursing home options. Some are part of continuing care retirement communities and others are stand-alone nursing homes. You’ll find homes with hundreds of beds and some with less than 60. All keep seniors safe, healthy, and as independent as possible.

Services at Nursing Homes

Don’t just assume that all nursing homes are the same. Each nursing you look at will offer something different. Remember this as you compare facilities. Read through the amenities and services offered to make sure your loved one stays healthy and happy.

Seattle nursing homes have a lot to offer. Residents enjoy daily nutritious meals, social activities, and privacy. Staff members also help with dressing, bathing, and other activities of daily living. Trained medical professionals assist with things like rehabilitation and medication dispensing. Plus, there’s twenty-four hour medical care available. Need memory care? Many nursing homes have that too.

Short -Term and Long-Term Nursing Home Care in Seattle

There are two types of nursing homes: short term and long term. Long-term care is probably what pops into your head when you think of a nursing home. It’s a permanent home for seniors with chronic medical problems to grow old in.

Short-term care works differently. This type of care is mainly for seniors recovering from an illness or injury. Seniors get physical therapy, medical treatment, and medication all in one place. This makes recovery safer and easier on busy families.

Short-term care is also used in emergencies and to give families time off. Acute care takes place during medical emergencies until a long-term plan is created. Respite care may last for a weekend or a week while family caregivers rest or go on vacation.

Choosing a Nursing Home in Seattle

Don’t rush your nursing home search. You want to find a home for your loved one where they can stay healthy and happy. Browse our list of nursing homes in Seattle and start comparing facilities until you find the right fit.

Independent Living in Seattle

Seattle is diverse city with plenty to do no matter your age. This city is known for its coffee, iconic skyline, and mountainous terrain. Plus, the downtown area is very walkable. You won’t be alone either. Seniors make up nearly 12% of Seattle’s population. That’s why you’ll find plenty of independent living options throughout the city and its suburbs.

What to Expect in Independent Living

Independent living facilities in Seattle take care of day-to-day tasks so that you can enjoy retirement. There’s no need to worry about housekeeping or meal prep. Most facilities have restaurants or cafeterias on site. Want to cook from time to time? You can do that too. Senior living apartments have kitchens.

For fun, residents can use game rooms, workout, attend movie nights, and sit around the fire. Most facilities cater to the interests of their residents. This could mean frequent sports outings, charity work, or outdoor activities

Seattle independent living facilities provide residents with apartments. Seniors can usually choose the size and layout of their new home. Plus, you’ll find lots of pet-friendly options.

Choosing an Independent Living Community

This community is your new home, so spend time making your decision. If you want to grow old in Seattle, check out continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). A CCRC offers multiple types of care like independent living, assisted living, and nursing home services. Think you’ll just move in with family if you need help down the road? Going with an active adult senior independent living community makes sense.
