What to Consider About Assisted Living in Spanaway

For a small town, Spanaway, Washington, has a lot for the area’s 27,227 residents, including the senior population of 2,497, to do, such as visiting Old McDebbie’s Farm, spending some time at Debbie DoLittle’s Indoor Petting Zoo, riding on the Gig Harbor Gondola, or visiting the area museums. The city also has a Fantasy Lights display at Spanaway Lake every holiday season.

In Spanaway and in all of Washington, these facilities are governed by The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Spanaway
