Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Buckley

  • Buckley has an array of community resources available to seniors, including group classes that teach seniors fitness, computer skills and art, as well as one senior center.
  • The Buckley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Franciscan St. Elizabeth Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The state of Washington has no state income tax, meaning that seniors are able to retain more of their Social Security and other retirement income to use towards the cost of assisted living.
  • Beyond the Borders offers transportation options including shared ride and dial-a-ride services throughout the county, making it easier for seniors to safely travel throughout Buckley and the surrounding area.
  • Seniors with respiratory illnesses don't need to worry about breathing the air in Buckley, as the air quality has been given a passing grade by the American Lung Association.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Buckley

Washington's Medicaid 1915(c) Waiver program--Community Options Program Entry System (COPES) and the Washington Medicaid State Plan are both available to help eligible seniors pay for care provided to them in assisted living facilities in the Buckley area. 

While the state doesn't offer an Optional State Supplement (OSS), it does cap room and board charges for Social Security income recipients, and it does allow for family supplementation where Medicaid doesn't cover items or services that are provided in assisted living facilities.
