Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Edmonds

The Edmonds area receives about 38 inches per year, one inch less than the national average, even though it may rain sporadically the majority of days in the year. Average low temperatures in winter are 36 degrees Fahrenheit, while the peak of summer tops out at around 74 degrees Fahrenheit.
- The air quality is excellent in Edmonds throughout the year, even though it is just north of a major metropolitan area. Much of this can be attributed to it being on the ocean and all the green space in and around the community.
- Edmonds has a cost of living index that's 30 percent higher than the state average and 50 percent higher than the U.S. average. Seniors should expect to pay more for necessities such as groceries and health care services. Also, Washington's sales tax is about 28 percent higher than the national average. The sales tax combined with already higher-than-average prices might make Edmonds an unfeasible option for low-income seniors.

- Homage Senior Services offers Dial-a-Ride transportation for seniors in the Edmonds area. The city's public bus service is also available to seniors age 65 and older at a reduced rate.
