    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lakewood

    Located in Pierce County, Lakewood, Washington sits alongside the Puget Sound, which provides plenty of activities for seniors who enjoy the outdoors. The lack of tax on Social Security, pensions and retirement accounts make Lakewood an excellent place for seniors to call home. 

    Retirement accommodations are available at the one assisted living community located near the center of town and at the 57 other communities located nearby in places like Federal Way, Gig Harbor and Milton. Referred to as assisted living facilities (ALFs), these communities are regulated by the Washington State Department of Social Services on matters like staff training, personal care assistance, medication management, safety and security.

    • The Lakewood area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Franciscan St. Care Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Lakewood has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Center for Independence, an organization that provides services to seniors with disabilities, and at least four senior centers.
