What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Wenatchee

Assisted living facilities in East Wenatchee are overseen by the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, which is part of Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services. The department licenses facilities and conducts inspections at least every 18 months to ensure they comply with state rules and regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Wenatchee

  • East Wenatchee has very little crime compared to the Washington average. The overall crime rate is 14 crimes per 1,000 residents, lower than 64% of all Washington area communities. Both violent crime and property crime in the city are well below the state averages, making it a very safe choice for retirees. 
  • Washington doesn’t have a state income tax, meaning that seniors in East Wenatchee keep more of their income, whether that’s from pensions, Social Security or retirement accounts. Sales taxes in the state are high, but exemptions on groceries, prescription drugs and newspapers can help seniors lower their tax burden. 
  • Although the cost of living in East Wenatchee is around 6 points higher than the national average, it’s lower than the Washington average, making it an affordable spot for people wanting to retire in the state. Costs for health care and transport in the city are lower than the national average, which can help seniors stretch their retirement budget. 
  • East Wenatchee is an enjoyable spot for people who want to experience all four seasons each year. The city only gets 9 inches of rain annually, and its 28 inches of snow ensure seniors can appreciate white winters. The average high temperature in July is 88 degrees, giving retirees a warm summer to enjoy the city’s outdoor attractions. 
  • Link Transit provides public transit to East Wenatchee, and transport is free for all riders. LinkPlus is Link Transit’s paratransit service that provides a door-to-door, shared ride service. Seniors not able to use the fixed-route service can apply for LinkPlus, which is also a free program.
  • Seniors in East Wenatchee have access to excellent hospitals in neighboring Wenatchee when they need care for injuries or illness. This includes Confluence Health Wenatchee Valley Hospital, which provides specialist geriatric care.
