Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study shows that Tacoma’s $4,250 average monthly cost of assisted living is slightly over the national average ($4,000) but significantly less than in much of the surrounding area. Costs in other Western Washington cities, such as Seattle ($5,750), Bremerton ($5,720) and Longview ($5,000), more closely reflect the state median of $5,135. Cities located further inland, including Yakima ($4,500) and Wenatchee ($4,125), have assisted living costs similar to those in Tacoma.
Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Tacoma, so data for the closest area, Olympia, was used.
The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Aside from adult day health services, assisted living is one of the least expensive types of senior care in Tacoma. At $9,064, 24-hour skilled nursing home care is more than double the average monthly cost of assisted living. Services that allow individuals to receive care at home, such as homemakers and home health aides, cost more than assisted living care and only cover the cost of care. Additional expenses, such as mortgage payments, utilities, meals and home upkeep, aren’t included in their costs.
