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.
