Learn More About Independent Living in Federal Way, WA

About halfway between Seattle and Tacoma along Puget Sound, Federal Way captures the one-of-a-kind natural allure of western Washington state while offering a quieter, more affordable lifestyle than its surrounding urban centers. Botanical gardens, forest trails, waterfront parks with coastal boardwalks and sunset views — you’ll find plenty of opportunities here to enjoy the outdoors and maintain an active retirement. Convenience is also one of this suburban city’s key traits, as it’s only about a 20-minute drive from Federal Way to Sea–Tac Airport.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Federal Way are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Federal Way retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.


Cost of Independent Living in Federal Way, WA
