    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tacoma

    Tacoma is a port city on the Puget Sound in western Washington. This birthplace of Bing Crosby is known as the “City of Destiny” as it became the westernmost terminus of the North Pacific Railroad in the late 1800s. In Tacoma, seniors account for approximately 12.8 percent of the population and are accommodated by 58 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in and around the city. These communities provide homes for independent seniors while offering help with daily activities and medication management and are regulated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tacoma

    • The cost of living in Tacoma is 12.9 percent higher than the U.S. average. This is primarily due to above average real estate costs, with health care, grocery and transportation costs only slightly above national medians.  
       
    • Winters in Tacoma can be very cold and wet, with average temperatures in January falling to around 35 degrees Fahrenheit. The city gets approximately 41 inches of rain per year, slightly above the U.S. average of 39. Summers are warm, dry and pleasant with average temperatures around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. 
       
    • Washington has no state income tax, so income from Social Security in Tacoma is tax-free, which leaves more money for seniors looking for assisted living in the city. 

    • In Tacoma, seniors who do not drive can get around the city on the Pierce Transit bus system where they can ride all day on one reduced fare ticket. The Lighthouse Senior Center and the Beacon Senior Center provide vans for registered seniors who need transportation. 

    • Tacoma has a thriving arts community with public and performance art including six major museums. It is also home to three different wineries. Metro Parks Tacoma’s STAR Center offers day trips to local destinations along with senior dances, group fitness and workshops. 

    • The Tacoma area is home to world-class medical facilities, including MultiCare Tacoma GeneralSt. Joseph Medical Center and MultiCare Allenmore Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Tacoma and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Tacoma

    Seniors residing in Washington can apply for financial assistance for assisted living through a few Medicaid programs.  The Medicaid Personal Care (MPC) program and the Community First Choice Option (CFCO) provide financial support for personal care assistance and costs other than room and board. Washington also offers seniors Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid Waivers including the Washington Medical COPES (Community Options Program Entry System) Waiver for additional funding for assisted living. 

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Washington page.
