What to Consider About Assisted Living in Puyallup

ALFs that accept Medicaid recipients must be licensed to provide one or more of three service packages that are based on specific levels of care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Puyallup

  • Puyallup was Washington’s first city to join the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, making a commitment to provide accessible services and enrichment opportunities for older adults. This initiative is part of a 20-year comprehensive plan that envisions Puyallup as a senior-friendly, active and safe community by 2030.
  • The healthcare needs of Puyallup seniors are supported by MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital. Its dedicated senior services include adult day health care, Eldercare family services and Celebrate Seniority, which is a membership program for adults aged 55 and older.
  • Aside from hosting the Washington State Fair, Puyallup offers seniors year-round enjoyment with its local arts and culture scene. The city’s Arts Downtown is an extensive outdoor gallery that features permanent and rotating displays, while the Antique District showcases large collections of vintage finds. Puyallup Public Library patrons can get free passes to select Pierce County parks and museums, while the wheelchair-accessible Liberty Theatre offers ticket discounts to those aged 55 and older.
  • To support seniors traveling in and around Puyallup, all Pierce Transit buses are wheelchair-accessible and the company offers discounted fares for passengers aged 65 and older, veterans, disabled adults and Medicare beneficiaries. There are also SHUTTLE shared-ride services that provide door-to-door paratransit rides. Sounder train rides from Puyallup Station to Tacoma, Seattle and other parts of the Puget Sound region are available at senior/disabled fares.
  • The oceanic climate of Puyallup is characterized by rainy winters, with temperatures averaging 35 degrees in January, and dry summers with temperatures in the 70s. The best time to enjoy the city’s parks, golf courses and other outdoor amenities is during the Puyallup Farmers’ Market season, which runs from April to October.
  • Puyallup’s overall cost of living is roughly 21% above the U.S. average due to local housing costs that are higher by over 50%. However, healthcare services in the city are about 16% less expensive than the nationwide median, and older Washingtonians can enjoy greater savings during retirement due to the Evergreen State’s zero income taxes.
