What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shoreline

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, and more specifically, its Aging and Long-Term Support Administration, is responsible for monitoring assisted living communities in the state. In addition to licensing residences and overseeing adherence to quality and safety standards, the ALTSA conducts unannounced inspections regularly, ensuring reliable care for seniors.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Shoreline

 

  • Washington is one of the few states that levy no income tax. As a result, most sources of retirement income, including savings accounts and private pensions, are subject to only the applicable federal tax rate. Although there is a constitutional 1% cap on property taxes, the high value of houses in the area means that the total amount paid can be significant. Fortunately, moving into an assisted living setting may help mitigate the costs related to homeownership.

 

  • According to an index that measures crime on a scale of 1 to 100, the area reports a violent crime rate of just 10.7 versus the U.S. average of 22.7, indicating fewer violent incidents than in most cities across the country. While Shoreline’s property crime rate of 39.9 is slightly above the national average of 35.4, those residing in assisted living communities often benefit from specialized surveillance systems that can help bolster their security.

 

  • In Shoreline, the overall cost of living is 21.9% higher than the Washington State average and 58.1% above the U.S. norm. The cost of groceries is in line with statewide prices, differing by just 5.5%. Other expenses are more affordable. Compared to the U.S. average, Shoreline residents spend 11.8% less on health care bills and a considerable 30.6% less on utilities.

 

  • Seniors in Shoreline can expect a pleasant, mild climate that generally stays away from extremes throughout all seasons. In January, temperatures drop to an average of 42 degrees Fahrenheit, with hardly any snow. Summers are also mild, with July highs averaging 67 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing residents to enjoy the wide variety of parks in the area.

 

  • Although Shoreline is located in an urban area, it receives passing scores for annual ozone and particle pollution levels. Its senior population also benefits from proximity to renowned health care facilities. Swedish Edmonds Hospital, just a few minutes away, offers emergency care alongside orthopedic and neurology services. Also within easy reach is the UW Medical Center at Montlake, only 10 miles south of Shoreline. This facility offers a comprehensive range of services, from laboratory testing to general surgery and oncology treatments.
