What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kent

Originally dubbed Titusville, Kent began with just 793 residents and now supports more than 125,000. The Kent area has 54 assisted living communities scattered in and around the city near local parks, businesses and restaurants. Seniors who are mostly independent but need some help with personal care, such as dressing, bathing, and grooming, as well as medication administration may benefit from the support of an assisted living facility. 

Seniors or caretakers who are hesitant about assisted living can reach out to the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, which strives to prevent abuse, neglect and subpar care in Washington's assisted living facilities. This agency is part of the Washington Department of Social and Health Services.
