What to Consider About Assisted Living in Centralia

Washington's Aging and Long-Term Support Administration — a division of the state's Department of Social and Health Services — licenses and regulates assisted living communities operating in Centralia and elsewhere throughout the Evergreen State. The Administration also manages Washington's Adult Protective Services agency and provides disability support to seniors.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Centralia

  • Centralia's AARP Livability Score of 52 places the city in the upper half of national ratings, just ahead of the 48-point U.S. average. According to the Elder Index, the expenses of seniors in overall good health measure at 88% of the national average across Lewis County, while expenses still measure 11% lower than usual, even for seniors needing more extensive medical care.
  • Violent crimes occur at a rate of 2.04 per 1,000 people each year in Centralia — considerably lower than the state and national medians of 3.36 and 4. While property crimes happen more frequently than usual in Centralia, at 35.32 incidences per 1,000 people in the city vs. the national median of 19, assisted living communities provide a constant staff presence and ample security measures to help ensure the safety of residents.
  • Lewis County ranks 33rd out of 39 counties in Washington for health care outcomes. However, it's important to note that health care across Washington as a whole measures comparably to the U.S. average. Additionally, while 7,300 people out of every 100,000 die earlier than age 75 across the nation, this rate drops to 5,800 people in Washington.
  • Including surrounding cities, seniors have access to 17 hospitals within a 50-mile radius of Centralia. St. Anthony Hospital in nearby Gig Harbor holds awards for patient safety and its stroke and gastrointestinal care. It also offers nationally-recognized cancer care.
  • The AARP hosts several senior-oriented events in Centralia and surrounding cities. Some options include fitness classes to help seniors maintain mobility and educational events informing families about age-related conditions such as diabetes.
  • Public transit options in Centralia include a fixed-route bus service that allows seniors to travel across the city and Amtrak rail services that enable regional trips.
