Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Enumclaw
- Enumclaw's cost of living is 34.20 percent higher than the national average, which may make it difficult for seniors on a budget to save for entertainment and other optional purchases.
- Seniors in Enumclaw can enjoy a comfortable four season climate. With an average high of 75 degrees Fahrenheit and an average low of 34 degrees, outdoorsy seniors can be active all year round. Mobility may not be an issue either, due to an annual snowfall of only five inches.
- Enumclaw can be considered quite safe due to its low crime rates. Violent crime is at 25.3 out of 100 (1 being the safest) which is lower than the national average of 31.1. Property crime is at 39.9, which is only a little bit higher than the national average of 38.1. Seniors may feel quite safe and secure living in this area.
- The Enumclaw area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Elizabeth Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Due to its location outside the big city, Enumclaw has limited access to public transit. The King County Metro Transit system connects public buses, trains and waterways with Seattle and has one route through Enumclaw. The area’s dial-a-ride program DART offers accessible transit by appointment making it possible for seniors to get around town and into the major metro area.
- The King County area received poor air quality ratings from the American Lung Association. Ozone scored a D, and the Particle Pollution 24-hour score was a bit better at a C. Seniors with respiratory conditions or asthma should consider how this could affect their health.
