What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lacey

In Lacey and the rest of the state, assisted living is regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Aging and Long-Term Support Administration. This agency issues licenses and renewals, inspects facilities to ensure they comply with regulations and investigates complaints about facilities. It also offers a facility lookup tool and other resources for choosing a location. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lacey

 

  • Lacey's climate scores 9.2 for summers and 5.2 for winters on the BestPlaces Comfort Index. The area sees a lot of rain, averaging 49 inches per year, compared to the national average of 38 inches. As far as temperatures go, winters typically see a low of 34 degrees and a July high of around 77 degrees, so the temperature is quite comfortable.
  • Property crime in Lacey is higher than the U.S. average. On a scale of 1 to 100, it ranks 48.1, compared to the national average of 35.4. However, violent crime is less frequent, scoring 17.6 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7 on the same scale.
  • The cost of living in Lacey is around 10% higher than the national average. However, the state as a whole averages around 22% higher than the national average, making it a more affordable area to live in Washington.
  • Health care in Lacey is around 22% lower than the U.S. average, and seniors have access to 224 physicians per 100,000 people, compared to the national average of 210. Seniors are also only an hour's drive away from the University of Washington Medical Center, which rates highly in geriatrics, cancer care and several common adult procedures and surgeries.
  • Washington as a whole has no income tax, meaning that income generated from pensions, retirement accounts or Social Security payments will not be taxed at the state level.
  • Lacey and most of Thurston County are served by Intercity Transit buses that are equipped with accessibility equipment. There are no fares for riding the bus, including the use of the Dial-A-Lift program, which provides door-to-door transportation for eligible individuals. To be eligible, seniors must have a disability or disabling health condition that prevents them from independently using the fixed bus lines.
  • Lacey has multiple on-ramps to Interstate 5 (I-5), the primary freeway driving throughout the Puget Sound area, granting easy access to surrounding major cities, including Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon. This grants access to several major attractions, as well as the freedom to enjoy everything the Puget Sound region has to offer.
