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.

Cogir of Queen Anne Retirement Living Seattle WA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Cogir of Queen Anne Senior Living:

I almost never write reviews but I had to for Queen Anne Cogir. I can’t say enough good things about this place. My Mom was in the assisted living building and I was constantly amazed at the level of care she received. Everyone was extra helpful and went out of their way to make sure she felt special. The “care team” members including house keeping established friendships with her and treated her as if she were their own mother. I can’t remember all their names but I do remember Natasha and her sister (who was Natasha’s supervisor) and Amena.

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.

Sunnyside Assisted Living WA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Sunnyside Assisted Living:

My mom lived there for five years until her Parkinson’s started making her a fall risk. The staff is kind and professional, but they have a hard time keeping an RN on staff as head nurse. They should probably raise the salary on that position so they can recruit and retain a good person.
