Learn More About Care Homes in Olympia, WA

Welcome to Olympia, WA, the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. With endless views of the coastlines, mountains, and forests of gorgeous Washington state, Olympia is a unique, mid-sized city with something for everyone.

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Olympia, WA

In 2019, the median monthly cost of a room in a care home was around $4,000 in Olympia and about $5,200 in the state of Washington. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
