    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burien

    Burien, Washington is home to Angel Lake Park and Ed Munro Seahurst Park, both perfect for watching wildlife, boating, fishing and leisurely nature trail strolls, all of which might be of interest to the city’s 4,253 seniors. For seniors who require an extra level of care, there are three assisted living facilities within the city limits and another 29 located in nearby communities like Seattle and Renton.

Seniors in the city might want to keep the higher cost of living in mind, although they may be able to find more affordable healthcare options.

    • There are several transportation options available to Burien seniors. Free Shuttle Bus rides take seniors to personal appointments and shopping for groceries in the area.

    • Burien has comfortable year-round temperatures with summer highs of 76 and winter lows of 37, which is ideal for seniors who don’t like extreme heat or cold. Sperling’s Comfort Index gives the area a 78 out of 100 in terms of overall comfort.
    • On a scale where 100 represents the areas with the best air quality, Burien has a rank of 20, 38 points lower than the national average of 58. Seniors with breathing difficulties might want to consider other parts of Washington with better air quality.
