What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wasilla

Wasilla, Alaska, located on the northern point of Cook Inlet in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, has a rich history steeped in the Gold Rush. It is also the largest city in Lake Country; its glass-top lakes invite seniors to fish, float or relax in a serene environment. 

There are also four assisted living facilities in Wasilla with six more in nearby Anchorage. They're all licensed by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and regulated through annual inspections. Some offer only assisted living options where staff help with personal care and medication administration but others include independent living where residents take care of their daily tasks and still have assistance nearby.
