What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burlington

Burlington is situated in northwest Washington in Skagit County, famous for its annual tulip festival. This city also has plenty of activities ifor ts 1,110 seniors to do from taking in a day of shopping, trying their luck at local casinos, going for evening or afternoon strolls in the area’s parks and trails or just relaxing in one of the city’s spas.

Seniors who require help with daily living activities have three assisted living facilities in Burlington to choose from, and another seven in the nearby communities of Mount Vernon, Sedro Woolley and La Conner. The Aging and Long-Term Support Administration department of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services licenses these facilities in both Burlington and in the entire state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Burlington

  • Burlington’s cost of living is 116.8, considerably lower than the Washington average of 131.1 and notably higher than the U.S. average of 100. Although seniors can expect to pay less for groceries and healthcare here than they would elsewhere, they can expect to pay more for groceries. Housing costs are also quite high at 158.3, which may raise the fees for assisted living facilities in the area.
  • Burlington seniors may find that their budgets stretch further thanks to Washington’s tax-friendly policies toward seniors. No taxes are applied to Social Security income, retirement savings account withdrawals or pensions.
  • The Burlington area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Sedro Woolley.
  • Burlington seniors can feel safe when venturing through the city thanks to Burlington’s low violent crime rate of 13.2, compared to the U.S. average of 22.7. Property crime in the city is 96, more than double the national average of 35.4, so seniors may want to ensure that prospective facilities have safety features.
  • The air quality in Burlington at 69, is more than 10 points higher than the national average of 58, which may make the area more appealing to seniors with heart or lung conditions.
  • Burlington’s temperatures ranging from 74 degrees in the summer to 36 in the winter, makes it an ideal location for seniors with conditions made worse with extreme seasonal temperatures.
