What are the advantages of assisted living in Washington?

Gig Harbor Court is located in Pierce County, WA. You’ll find our senior apartment community between Carr Inlet and Puget Sound. Residents have the pleasure of relaxing in the tranquil courtyard or diving deeper into nearby nature with community-provided transportation.

Some of the nearby attractions include:

  • Sunrise Beach Park
  • Grandview Forest Park
  • Gig Harbor Viewpoint

Living amongst the beauty of nature is a significant benefit of assisted living at Gig Harbor. A relationship with nature is a positive force for “maintaining and enhancing the physical and mental health and wellbeing in older populations.”

In addition to community outings, activities like the gardening club allow residents to feel connected to the outdoors. Washington is a beautiful state, and we encourage older adults to soak it up.

What’s the difference between home health care and a long-term care facility?

Home care assistance can be one option families consider for an aging adult. According to Medicare, home care services might include:

  • Nutrition planning and preparation
  • Vital checks: blood pressure, temperature, heart rate
  • Medication management
  • Pain management
  • Supervising the home
  • Providing future care instructions
  • Coordinating care with the patient, doctor, care managers, and adult family members

A hospital stay and doctor’s orders are needed to qualify for Medicare assistance for in-home care or skilled nursing home care.

The cost of home care agencies’ services without insurance coverage is similar to an assisted living community. Senior housing like Gig Harbor Court also has a lot more to offer.

  • The average cost of assisted living in Washington: $4,500/month
  • The average cost of a Home Health Aide (44 hours/week) in Washington: $5,148/month
  • Senior living at Gig Harbor Court starts at $3,703/month

Assisted living is a type of long-term care. Superior senior service at Gig Harbor Court includes:

  • Licensed nurse supervision
  • Bathing, dressing, and grooming
  • Dining assistance
  • Mobility assistance
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • On-site physical, occupational, and speech therapy

Personal care and 24-hour response are significant benefits of assisted living. Socialization, chef-prepared meals, and engaging activities also improve senior care service.
