What to Consider About Assisted Living in Issaquah

Throughout the state, assisted living facilities are governed by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. This department publishes the state standards for these facilities, including guidelines for nutrition, staff-to-resident ratios and minimum care. It also provides seniors with an assisted living facility locator, a list of all licensed facilities in the state and information about state-funded care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Issaquah

  • There are several high-performing hospitals in close proximity to Issaquah, including Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. Issaquah is also a short drive from Harborview Medical Center and the University of Washington Medical Center, two highly rated hospitals, so seniors in need of quality medical services don’t have to travel far.
  • The total combined city and state sales tax in Issaquah is significantly higher than the national average at 10.1%, but this is balanced out by Washington’s lack of a state income tax. 
  • Issaquah, like most of the western half of Washington, sees substantial rain throughout the year at 52.6″ compared to the national average of 38.1″ annually. The city’s summer high temperature averages 75.6 degrees compared to the national average of 85.8 degrees, meaning seniors who don’t mind a little rain can enjoy a mild climate.
  • Seniors seeking public transportation have access to a robust system in Issaquah, including connecting lines to major metro areas such as nearby Seattle, Bellevue and Sammamish. These cities are accessible at a discount for seniors 65 and older with a regional reduced fare permit. 
  • Property crime rates in Issaquah are slightly higher than the national average. Burglary rates are 562.1 per 100,000 residents compared to the national average of 500.1, and theft occurs at 3,306.5 compared to 2,042.8. However, violent crimes are rare in the area, with 7.4 reporting assault compared to the national average of 282.7, and robberies occur at 22.1 compared to 135.5. Many assisted living communities offer additional security and around-the-clock staffing, which can deter property crime. 
  • Like most of Washington State, Issaquah is an expensive place to live. The cost of living is 75% higher than the national average. High-priced housing and transportation account for much of the area’s high cost of living. However, seniors living in this city benefit from health care costs that are nearly 12% lower than the national average based on the standard daily rate for a hospital room and the cost of visiting a doctor or dentist.
