With a monthly median of $4,825, Vancouver’s cost for assisted living exceeds the national average by approximately $800 per month. It’s also higher than nearby Oregon state’s monthly average of $4,593, but Vancouver assisted living expenses generally fall below Washington’s monthly average of $5,135. Vancouver residents typically pay more than residents of Bellingham ($4,250) and Wenatchee ($4,125) but less than seniors in large metropolitan areas such as Seattle ($5,750) and Olympia ($4,250).
Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
Senior care expenses in Vancouver vary based on whether the services involve in-home care or around-the-clock care at a facility. Adult day health care averages $2,167 per month, which makes it one of the most budget-friendly options for seniors in the area. Home health aides cost approximately $5,339 per month, which is roughly $500 higher than the monthly median for assisted living facilities.
Nursing home care creates the highest expenses for Vancouver residents, with semiprivate rooms and private rooms each averaging more than $9,000 per month. However, a nursing home may cost less than aging at home with help from health aides. Caretakers for seniors who currently live at home may want to compare the cost of rent, utilities and groceries with the amenities offered by a Vancouver nursing home.

Washington Apple Health, the state’s Medicaid program, helps reduce the cost of assisted living facilities and home health care for qualifying low-income seniors. Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) must have a monthly income of $771 or lower to qualify for Medicaid coverage. To apply for Medicaid, elderly residents can visit the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, apply over the phone by calling 1-800-871-9275, fax an application to 1-877-635-8305 or complete an online application at WashingtonConnection.org.
Some Medicare recipients also qualify for Medicaid. When seniors participate in both programs, Medicaid may help cover the cost of Medicare premiums as well as other long-term services. Monthly income limits for Medicaid recipients who also receive Medicare coverage range from $1,041 to $2,818. These limits vary and depend on whether seniors are single or married as well as the level of coverage applicants desire.
Medicaid Personal Choice Program
Elderly Medicaid recipients can apply for the Medicaid Personal Care (MPC) program. This program gives seniors the flexibility to receive in-home assistance or reside at an assisted living facility. Seniors who need help with hygiene-related tasks such as bathing or using the bathroom can remain at home and select their preferred caregiver. This may be a medical professional, friend or family member.
Medicaid recipients can apply for the MPC program by contacting their Medicaid caseworker or eligibility specialist.
Community First Choice Option
The Community First Choice Option (CFCO) is another Medicaid program that provides benefits for seniors who need institutional-level care. The CFCO program helps cover personal care assistance, medication assistance and assistive technology for participants who wish to delay or avoid nursing home residency. Seniors can remain in their own homes, stay with family members or live in an assisted living facility. As with the MPC program, seniors can choose their own caretakers.
Enrollment is not automatic for qualifying seniors. Seniors must contact their local Medicaid office and request to participate in this program. In additional to annual income limits, current resources are typically capped at $2,000 for individuals and $3,000 for married couples.
Washington Medicaid COPES (Community Options Program Entry System)
Qualifying seniors can receive supportive services from the Washington Medicaid COPES(Community Options Program Entry System) waiver. In-home services, such as meal delivery and home health care are available. Seniors can also receive benefits at an assisted living facility.
The Washington Medicaid COPES program differs from the CFCO and MPC programs by implementing a cap on recipients. A senior may meet the eligibility requirements for COPES yet still not receive services due to the cap. This program is also available for disabled Washington residents who are 18 to 64 years old.
