Information About Independent Living in Seattle

Seattle Independent LivingSituated between Lake Washington to the east and an inlet of the Pacific Ocean to the west, Seattle is a major coastal city, with a population that makes it the largest city in the Northwest region of the United States. The city boasts of a thriving economy that is driven by a mix of old-age industrial businesses and newer industries involved in technology and services. Seattle enjoys temperate weather with mild winters and dry summers. Being a major hub, Seattle independent living options have the best of both worlds: convenience of city living as well as the tranquility of being part of a quiet and close-knit community.

Attractions

Seattle has more than its fair share of attractions to keep anyone busy during the day and world-class dining options and cultural events to entertain anyone during the night. For example, seniors can go to Seattle Center and enjoy a wide range of activities. The iconic Space Needle that offers panoramic 360 degree view of the Seattle area is wheelchair accessible. For science and culture buffs, a tour of the Pacific Science Center is in order; while those who dig concerts and events can come and watch something that suits their fancy at KeyArena, McCaw Hall, SIFF Cinema or Seattle Repertory theatre. Additionally, nature-loving seniors residing in Seattle independent living centers have their choice of parks and gardens, such as Discovery Park, Green Lake Park and Lincoln Park.

Senior Activities

Seniors in Seattle independent living centers can participate in Lifelong Recreation, a program organized by Seattle Parks and Recreation Board for people aged 50 years and up. The program includes a wide range of activities that change with each season. During fall, seniors may sign-up to join activities like bird walks, tandem biking, field trips, botanical art, and African dance. Winter activities, on the other hand, include zumba, yoga, field trips, and pottery. Additionally, they also organize sports events like Northwest Senior Games, lawn bowling and softball.

The Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens provides assistance and information for those who care for seniors as well as seniors themselves. An employment resource center provides training referrals, career information and job search guidance for those residents who are 55 years of age or older. There are a number of senior centers scattered throughout the metro area that offer enrichment classes, field trips, educational opportunities and other resources.

Medical Facilities

Seattle Independent LivingIn terms of medical facilities, Seattle independent living seniors can take advantage of the best tools and skills the country has to offer. The city has 3 of the top-ranked hospitals in Washington, namely: University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, and Virginia Mason Medical Center. These top-ranking hospitals offer the best medical services in specialties like cancer, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology, geriatrics, nephrology, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and many others. Additionally, these medical centers are recipients of many awards, and their physicians are among the best in their area of specialty.

Transportation

Seattle’s main modes of public transportation are buses and mass transits operated by two agencies - Sound Transit and King County Metro Transit. The government has also rolled out a bicycle program, which makes it possible for cyclists to travel safely on a bike using the city’s bike maps and facilities. Seniors with limited mobility may also take advantage of government-initiated transportation programs like Metro’s ADA Paratransit Program and Access Transportation Service. Moreover, many Seattle independent living centers have their own fleet of transportation for senior activities, medical appointments, and events.

With all the trappings evident in most economic hubs like Seattle, the sense of community is still very palpable. That’s why it’s truly no wonder why many seniors across America choose Seattle independent living center as their home of choice. After all, with buzzing city scenes as well as mind-stimulating and scenic attractions, Seattle makes an awesome place for adventures and recreations.

Cost of Independent Living in Washington

Washington is one of only seven states in the nation that does not have a personal income tax. However, it has relatively high state and local sales taxes that equate to about 8-9% depending on geographic area. The state also incurs additional taxes on gasoline, cigarettes and alcoholic beverages. This is in stark contrast to neighboring Oregon, which has no sales tax, and British Columbia, Canada which has a fluctuating exchange rate and the opportunity for duty-free shopping.

Although Washington residents have the 10th highest per capita personal income in the nation ($52,403 annually in 2009), they enjoy a cost of living that is comparable or even slightly below the national average. The overall cost of living, including housing, transportation, and goods and services, is highest in the greater Puget Sound area. The cost of living is much lower in Eastern and Central Washington.

Utility costs in all areas of Washington State are also significantly lower than the national average due to the presence of the Grand Coulee Dam on Washington’s Columbia River. The state is the leading producer of hydroelectric power, producing nearly 30% of the country’s net electricity.
