Tip for Paying for Washington Senior Living: Reverse Mortgages
Paying for a senior living facility is a certain investment, but thankfully, nowadays there are numerous ways to finance this cost. If the individual moving into a senior living facility’s spouse still resides in their home, you can take out a reverse mortgage and convert a portion of the home’s equity into cash to pay the senior living facility. This is a common and viable option for many seniors. 

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Washington

The good news – there are plenty of senior living facilities to choose from in Washington. Not only is the selection wide, but Washington has some exceptional centers that receive rave reviews. Choosing just 15 was actually a challenge. We looked up all the reviews on Google and Facebook for senior living facilities listed on our site, and combined them with ratings and comments from our own visitors. Our team also investigated the Washington State Dept. of Social and Health Services for violations and complaints for long-term care residential options.

The average price for assisted living in Washington is $2,900. Other types of living vary depending on care. Independent living and senior apartments are cheaper because they don’t offer care. Facilities with highly trained and skilled staff like memory care units or nursing homes can cost thousands more a month.

four freedoms house of seattle wa

What residents and loved ones have to say about Four Freedoms House of Seattle:

The Four Freedoms House of Seattle is a wonderful relic of the past. A legacy of FDR/LBJ social liberalism, HUD and the “Great Society”, public housing for seniors. Originally intended as a union retirement home, it is solidly built on Bitterlake’s shore, conveniently located next to a mini mall and on bus lines, a block from Aurora N. just south of Shoreline. The Broadview library is within walking distance, Bitterlake Community Center and playfield just down the street.

senior home care 1

What residents and loved ones have to say about Home Instead Senior Care – Tacoma, WA:

They take care of all my needs in a timely and friendly manner. They even go above and beyond what would normally be needed. What endeared me the most was that they are regularly providing my Ocicat with toys because they know that Te-Ca is a very important part of my every day and my life would be unbearable without her to play with. And not any generic toy either – great care is put into the selection of each toy to insure that maximum enjoyment will be felt by both myself and Te-Ca! Its these little added touches that puts Home Instead above the rest.

the lodge at mallards landing gig harbor wa

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Lodge at Mallard’s Landing:

I am excited to be helping my parents move into this beautiful community. They found the independent cottages to be a wonderful option. Meals and activities are a short walk away in the Lodge. All of the employees that I have met have been friendly and helpful! The only reason that I am not giving it a five star review is because they have not been there long enough… Ill review again in 6 months. UPDATE: It has been 8 months now and my parents absolutely love this place! The food is delicious, caregivers and staff are friendly patient and caring. They are currently independent and have their privacy, but know that if they need help in any way, it is available. We strongly recommend this home!

Cogir of Mill Creek WA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Cogir of Mill Creek:

This has been a wonderful transition to an active and social community for my 79 year old father, a very social retired chemist. He had visited several other assisted living locations, but was discouraged by the nursing home vibe, was unwilling to leave his rented home. After several medical close calls, we were referred to this location. My dad loved the very active fishing club, the rustic apartment like setting, and the very active residents.

I and my siblings were very impressed by Dave, one of the managers caring assistance with facilitating my dad’s visits and transitions. My Dad loves this place! He likes his first floor patio apartment, his freedom to come and go, the flexible mealtimes, and the close shopping center, cafe’s and most importantly, serious bass, trout and steelhead fishing. We appreciate the medication management program and the easy ability to increase assisted living services as my Dad ages. Fortunately, he’s acting 10 years younger since he’s moved to an active community, rather than his isolation in his own home. We’re thrilled

Arbor Ridge Assisted Living Vancouver WA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Arbor Ridge:

Arbor Ridge is in a very nice location and quiet neighborhood. The 2-level apartments are very clean. They have a community area where you can go cook if you want. It’s a place where I’d like to go and live myself. During my visit, I wanted to talk to somebody there. But the only ones that I got to talk to where the residents, because the staff wouldn’t even come out of the office. The residents love it there and wouldn’t live any place else.
