What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kirkland

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, licenses assisted living facilities in Kirkland and the rest of the state. Based on statewide regulations, assisted living facilities must have at least seven residents, and they must provide help with daily living activities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kirkland

  • Washington doesn’t impose a state income tax, which may help older residents afford assisted living expenses in Kirkland. The sales tax rate is high, but groceries and prescription drugs are exempt.
  • Kirkland is a relatively expensive place to live, particularly because of housing prices that are more than three times the national norm. Overall, the city’s cost of living rates 179 on a 100-point index based on the national average. This is nearly 60 points higher than Washington’s median. For seniors considering Kirkland for retirement, assisted living may provide an affordable alternative to living alone.
  • There are over 300 doctors per capita in Kirkland, nearly 50% higher than the national norm, and despite the high cost of living, health care costs are about 20% below the national average, providing savings for older adults who need routine medical care. Evergreen Health Medical Center provides primary and specialty care for area residents, and many assisted living facilities provide telehealth services for basic services and consultations.
  • Kirkland’s weather is comfortable throughout the year, with daytime temperatures ranging from 46 to 77 degrees. The city only gets 4 inches of annual snowfall, which may appeal to older adults who enjoy being outside. To support residents’ comfort, many assisted living facilities provide outdoor common areas and individual climate controls in residents’ rooms.
  • While property crime rates in Kirkland are comparable to national norms, the city’s violent crime rate is very low. On a 100-point crime index that assigns higher scores to communities with more crime, the city scores 37.4 for property crime and 7.6 for violent crime. This may promote a safe environment for older adults considering this city for long-term care.
  • Seniors in Kirkland have access to RapidRide buses and DART fixed-route transit services, enabling them to navigate the city without relying on a private vehicle. Assisted living facilities in the region also provide local transportation services to help residents attend appointments, errands and recreational outings.
