Assisted Living in Tacoma, Washington

Residents of Tacoma enjoy a Pacific Northwest climate, easy proximity to metro Seattle, and a tax-friendly environment for retirees. Although the average cost of living is higher in Tacoma than the national average, seniors can enjoy the lack of personal income tax, which allows them to keep all of their Social Security and retirement income that isn’t subject to federal withholdings. 

Assisted living is an option for seniors who need a little help with the activities of daily life but don’t require a nursing home level of care. This customized service helps meet individual needs with tasks such as nonmedical personal care, housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation. The average cost of assisted living in Tacoma is  $5,750 per month. While this is higher than the national average, it’s lower than the overall average for Washington. 

This guide provides an exploratory look at assisted living in Tacoma, including cost comparisons with other communities. Also included is a list of resources, programs and services that help seniors retain independence and achieve a good quality of life.
