Seniors make up 15.2 percent of this population and are served by 16 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in and around the area. These ALFs are licensed by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services who defines them as communities with seven or more residents that offer room and board as well as assistance with daily living activities.

    • Seniors residing in Washington state are not taxed on any income, including social security, which leaves more money to put towards assisted living in Olympia.

The area receives approximately 48 inches of rain per year, which is above the U.S. average of 39.

    • Air quality in Olympia is good, scoring a 49 out of 100, below the U.S. average of 58. The American Lung Association gives the area of Thurston County an overall A grade for ozone pollution, which is important for seniors with respiratory issues. 

    • Olympia is considered a regional center for the arts with several theater companies, the Olympia Symphony Orchestra and the Masterworks Chorale Ensemble.
