What to Consider About Assisted Living in Federal Way

Federal Way is about 23 miles south of Seattle on Interstate 5 and about 12 miles away from Tacoma. Having access to these two cities offers many conveniences, although Tacoma is likely slightly easier for seniors to get to and navigate than Seattle.

Federal Way itself has a number of attractive parks and several arts and cultural opportunities that may appeal to seniors. There are certainly a number of assisted living facilities in the area from which to choose, with 12 in Federal Way and 46 nearby. The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration licenses all these facilities to house at least seven residents and to provide assistance with the activities of daily living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Federal Way

  • Housing costs are high; with 100 representing the national average, housing in Federal Way scores 167. However, the amenities and proximity to several cities may be a worthwhile trade-off for some seniors.

  • The climate in Federal Way can be comfortable, as it scores 79 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index. This score comes despite having only 151 sunny days per year and above-average amounts of rain. Seniors that are not fans of winter will appreciate the mere five inches of annual snowfall and the July highs of 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • According to the American Lung Association, the Seattle-Tacoma area is the 15th-worst area in the country for short-term particle pollution. Wildfires can affect the air quality here, and seniors should heed alerts and take preventative measures such as staying indoors when advised.

  • Crime, an area of concern for many seniors, presents something of an issue in Federal Way. The property crime rate is 67.3 compared with the U.S. average of 38.1. However, property crimes include arson and burglary, which may not concern seniors as much as violent crimes involving robbery or murder. Federal Way’s violent crime rate is a more favorable 27.1 compared with the national average of 31.1.

  • SoundTransit gives seniors multiple options for reaching Seattle and Tacoma with discounted senior fares. Pierce Transit offers routes in Federal Way and seniors can get discounted fares.

  • Federal Way is home to museums such as the Pacific Bonsai Museum and Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden along with other attractions seniors may enjoy such as the Centerstage Theatre Arts Conservatory and Dash Point State Park.
