Independent Living in Washington

Washington has earned its nickname as “The Evergreen State” for its wide swaths of coniferous forest. Many people may be most familiar with Seattle and its iconic Space Needle, but the eastern half of the state has a personality all its own, with a serene desert beauty akin to parts of Idaho or Montana. In contrast, Washington’s Pacific Coast is home to an actual rainforest. The state’s varied landscape as well as its relatively mild climate make it an ideal retirement destination.

When it comes to retirement communities, Washington state has many great options. Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 300 independent living communities in Washington. The median monthly cost of independent living in Washington is about $2,600. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can help you find the best retirement communities in Washington state.

Harbour Pointe Senior Living in Mukilteo, WA

This is a nice community. The apartments are a nice size and roomy. They have a good list of activities for the residents to choose from. They have friendly front desk staff. My loved one seems to enjoy the food.

Solstice Senior Living at Point Defiance in Tacoma, WA
3.4

I would recommend this community for your loved one. There are a few things that they could improve on like the friendliness from some of the staff. You would just expect more from the staff in this type of setting when it comes to friendliness. They advertise cleaning every week and right now it is every two weeks due to a staffing shortage and we are not sure how long this will be happening. The landscaping could also be improved in certain areas of the community. Just make sure you research to make sure it is a good fit.

Cogir of Northgate Senior Living in Seattle, WA
4.2

What we really saw that was positive is the staff, from the front end staff, to the director, who is excellent to work with. They have excellent communication. We get emails all the time with any updates. They're close by to medical facilities, so that's been a Godsend. The shuttle service they have has been very accommodating, so we've been very happy with that. They take the residents to doctor appointments, and on outings. Recently they went to the Tulip Festival. My family members love the food. They were at a different place with turnover in the kitchen that negatively affected the food, and now at Cogir of Northgate they rave about the food. They have no complaints and are very happy. The only downside has been the fact that there aren't any sidewalks along 15th NE. So if they're out walking with their electric walkers, they don't feel comfortable going on an outing to the grocery store due to the lack of sidewalks. Overall we've had a good experience, and would definitely recommend it to others.
