Arlington is home to nearly 18,000 people, 11.32% of whom are at least 65 years old, and some of these seniors may take advantage of the three assisted living facilities in town that help residents with the tasks of daily living, such as grooming and hygiene.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Arlington
- There are only seven states that don’t have an income tax, and Washington is one of them. Retirees in Mukilteo don’t have to pay tax on their Social Security benefits, private and public pensions or withdrawals from 401(ks) and IRAS. These tax savings may help Arlington seniors afford the cost of assisted living care.
- The Arlington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Cascade Valley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Arlington's cost of living is 133.8, on par with the state average but nearly 34% higher than the U.S. baseline of 100. Housing costs are twice the national average, but family members moving here to be close to loved ones in assisted living may save on healthcare and utility costs.
- According to the EPA, Arlington's air quality of 55 is on par with the national average of 58. This may give seniors with COPD and asthma peace of mind that their condition isn't likely to worse here.
- With a temperature range of 35 to 74 degrees, Arlington's climate may be a welcome surprise to seniors moving here from colder climes. The area receives just 5 inches of snowfall per year but gets 42 inches of rain, 4 inches more than the U.S. median.
- Arlington's violent crime rate of 12.4 is about half the U.S. average of 22.7, but the city's property crime of 69.5 is double the national average of 35.4. This could be a cause of concern for seniors running errands in town.
