Lakewood is in Pierce County, to the south of Tacoma, and it offers an attractive array of outdoor recreation features and shopping options. The city has a vibrant senior community, with seniors aged 65 and older making up an estimated 15.4% of Lakewood’s 61,037 residents. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy Lakewold Gardens and American Lake Park, and the Lakewood Towne Center is home to a multitude of stores and restaurants. Another perk of living in this city is access to the Lakewood Playhouse, where seniors can enjoy stage performances.

Lakewood is home to many qualified home health care providers. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 reports that Lakewood’s homemakers and home health aides both charge an average of $6,101 per month. Those rates are higher than the corresponding national monthly averages of $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Lakewood, so data for the closest city, Olympia, was used. 

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Lakewood area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Lakewood Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Lakewood:

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 1305 Tacoma Ave. South, Suite 104, Tacoma, WA 98402
Phone Number: (253) 798-4500

The WAP is available to low-income homeowners in Pierce County and is designed to increase the energy efficiency and safety of homes. Through the WAP, applicants can access a home assessment, insulation and air sealing services and furnace repairs. Workers from the program also test gas appliances, supply carbon monoxide detectors and take measures to boost air quality inside homes. 

Aging & Disability Resources

Address: 1305 Tacoma Ave. South, Suite 104, Tacoma, WA 98402
Phone Number: (253) 798-4600

ADR offers a variety of services of use to older adults who wish to continue living at home, including care planning and education about clients’ health needs. Additionally, the program advises clients on their housing options and helps them access services. The program also supports family caregivers, and its website has many links to additional sources of information and assistance.

Catholic Community Services

Address: 100 23rd Ave. South, Seattle, WA 98144
Phone Number: (206) 328-5696

Through CCS, seniors can access nonmedical care at home. The organization’s home care providers handle errands, laundry and housekeeping tasks for clients. Help is also available for daily living activities, such as bathing and dressing. Other offerings include home-delivered meals and volunteer transportation services for older adults who otherwise have trouble getting around. The organization serves individuals of all income levels. 

Lutheran Community Services Northwest

Address: 3848 South Junett St., Tacoma, WA 98409
Phone Number: (206) 901-1685

LCS Northwest offers the Senior Companion program, which matches socially isolated seniors with similarly aged volunteers who provide company and opportunities to interact. A similar program, Senior Friends, also has the goal of reducing isolation among older adults living at home. The organization runs a low-cost home-delivered meal service for individuals who cannot obtain groceries or prepare meals on their own, and its Home Care program makes activities, such as shopping and housekeeping, less burdensome for seniors.

City of Lakewood Home Repair Programs

Address: 6000 Main St. Southwest, Lakewood, WA 98499
Phone Number: (253) 983-7754

Meanwhile, the Housing Rehabilitation program offers assistance in bringing houses into compliance with building codes, and it can be used to fund roof replacements and many other projects. Income limits apply for eligibility, and elderly individuals are given priority.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
