Seattle, Washington

Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the benefit of having housekeeping handled by professionals, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which provides occupants more free time to live their lives as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the care plan: housekeeping, laundry, wellness program, utilities, internet access, field trips, Waiting list deposit, and private phone. The luxuries associated with independent living include golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, security guards, transportation, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, and concierge services.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Access to medical facilities might be a significant factor when choosing the most suitable senior community. The top hospitals that service Seattle include Swedish Medical Center, Northwest Hospital, and Virginia Mason Medical Center. In total, there are 9 hospitals located in Seattle which offer emergency services and other healthcare.
