What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lynnwood

Assisted living facilities in Lynnwood are overseen by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. The department maintains an up-to-date and comprehensive directory of all licensed assisted living facilities in the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lynnwood

  • Lynnwood’s cost of living averages about 37.6% higher than the U.S. norm, but those figures mostly relate to housing, which is more than double the national average. Seniors in the city spend a lot less on utilities than the average American, while food prices are on par with the national median. Older adults seeking medical care pay nearly 15% less than in other areas of the country. 
  • Older Lynwood residents are well-served by more than 35 hospitals within a 50-mile radius, including highly rated facilities such as Jefferson Healthcare, the United General Medical Center and the Virginia Mason Medical Center. The nearest medical facility to Lynnwood, Swedish Edmonds, provides older patients with a specialized Senior Wellness program.  
  • Climate conditions in Lynnwood receive an average comfort index score of 7.3/10, which is suitable for seniors during most of the year. Winters in the city get very cold, with temperatures as low as 36 degrees, and the area only receives about 4 inches of snow each year, which is much less than the U.S. average of 28 inches. Summers are dry but mostly cloudy and temperatures rarely go above 74 degrees, meaning seniors are less likely to suffer from heatstroke while spending time outdoors. 
  • Violent crime is less common than in other parts of the country. Lynnwood’s violent incident rate of 15 is lower than the U.S. median of 22.7. However, property crime is more prevalent in the area with a rate of 88.9, compared to the national norm of 35.4. Assisted living facilities usually take the safety of residents and their belongings seriously and most have on-site security systems and staff around-the-clock. 
  • Older Lynnwood residents can get around Snohomish County with the help of the Transportation Assistance Program. Low-cost rides with drivers trained to assist people with disabilities are available to eligible seniors aged 55 and older.
