What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chehalis

Assisted living facilities in Chehalis are licensed through the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration and comply with minimum standards for building requirements, care planning, staffing and nutrition services. This department promotes a high standard of care for residents through a strict licensing process and regular inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chehalis

 

  • Washington’s lack of state income tax means seniors only pay federal income taxes on their retirement income, regardless of its source. This can help many seniors afford assisted living in Chehalis, especially if they’re moving to this city from outside the state.
  • Seniors who need local transportation may be able to get services through the Lewis County Senior Services program. Seniors can learn more about this county-sponsored program by calling the main office at (360) 748-0061.
  • There are no hospitals in Chehalis proper, but assisted living residents have access to numerous major medical facilities in the region, including Providence Centralia Hospital and Providence St. Peter Hospital in nearby Olympia. While the number of doctors per 100,000 people is significantly lower than the national norm at 104, many local assisted living facilities have on-call physicians who provide care.
  • On a 10-point comfort index, Chehalis rates 9.1 versus the national score of 7.8, indicating that it’s one of the more pleasant places to live in the country. The July high is around 78 degrees and humidity is low most days, making the city an attractive option for active seniors. Winters are mild with daytime temperatures in the mid-40s and just 2 inches of snowfall. Assisted living facilities typically plan indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year to accommodate a variety of interests and preferences.
  • Property crime is very prevalent in Chehalis, which may make assisted living a practical alternative to living alone for vulnerable individuals. On a 100-point crime index, the city rates 94.9 for this type of care, versus the national norm of 35.4. However, violent crime is rare, rating 12.3 compared to 22.7 nationally, providing peace of mind to many seniors moving to this city for long-term care.
  • The cost of living in Chehalis is in line with the national norm and well below the state average, which may make the city a budget-friendly option for those seeking long-term care with limited financial resources. On an index set to a national norm of 100, the city rates 100.1 compared to the state score of 121.9.
