What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kenmore

In a recent study, Kenmore ranked number one among America's Best Cities for a Healthy Retirement, meaning that it received high scores for wellness, access to medical services and satisfaction with the city's overall quality of life. For retirees considering assisted living, the Kenmore area offers 56 different facilities from which to choose, with three in Kenmore and 53 more in surrounding towns including Bothell, Kirkland and Mountlake Terrace. The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) licenses all of these assisted living facilities (ALFs) to provide personal care services for residents.

  • Washington has one of the most retiree-friendly tax policies of any state in the U.S.  Because there is no state income tax, all types of retirement income are tax-free.
  • The Kenmore area boasts a variety of cultural and outdoor activities that seniors may enjoy, from parks and golf courses to the Kenmore Art Gallery and the Northshore Performing Arts Center.
  • Kenmore has an array of community resources for seniors, including Aging and Disability Services, an organization that helps link seniors to available resources, as well as two senior centers.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Kenmore

Washington's state Medicaid program, called Apple Health, offers financial assistance that may help low-income persons pay for assisted living. Programs include the Community First Choice Option (CFCO), the Medicaid Personal Care (MPC) program and the Community Options Program Entry System (COPES) waiver. Because some facilities do not accept payments from the state, it is a good idea to check with individual facilities regarding their policies.  

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Washington page.
