How much is assisted living in Washington state?

Before we go over the benefits of full-care senior living in Washington, it’s important to understand the costs. The cost of assisted living in Washington state is usually around $6,000 per month, according to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Pricing varies among communities but typically includes meals, amenities, activities, care, and apartment size.

Gig Harbor Court in Gig Harbor, Washington, remains competitive against these high prices, with our assisted living starting at under $4,000 per month.

What type of lifestyle can seniors expect from senior care? Washington state offers plenty of benefits, from exciting attractions to spacious apartments.

One of the draws that make Gig Harbor a great place to retire is its small-town feel. With a population estimate of just over 12,000, Gig Harbor is the perfect size for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. But don’t let its size fool you — Gig Harbor has plenty to do.
