Maybe you’re looking for maintenance-free living and a more active social calendar. Maybe you have increasingly limited mobility. Maybe you have a family member with cognitive impairments or some other health condition. Many of the decisions that come with assisted living in Seattle are deeply personal and individually complex. To help with these decisions, we’ve compiled a list of senior living communities that you can browse through (below).

Yet, there are also community-level decisions that influence the location, availability, care services, amenities, and cost of senior living in Seattle. You should also know about these trends and industry forces to find the best possible placement. What do we mean by community-level decisions? Well, in a broad sense, assisted living in Seattle is a reflection of the larger city. It’s both victim to and beneficiary of the city’s breakneck pace for real estate development.


Local News and Featured Communities

To find examples, one need only look around. There are stories like this one from Kiro 7 about Sagebrook Senior Living, an assisted living community that’s being displaced as the building is converted into standard apartment units. This K5 news report shows the growing conflict between Legacy House, an established senior living community in the International District, and the local real estate developer Hotel Concepts. It’s a controversy that’s easy for Seattle Closetbox to understand. We love downtown apartment living as well as preserving community heritage—especially when defined by deliciously steamed and filling-stuffed buns.

More than just young, tech-savvy entrepreneurs, however, the senior population is also a big part of the city’s overall growth and economic success. Likewise, it’s not as though the city is trying to ban all assisted living communities to the exurban fringes. Capitol Hill Seattle points to this mixed-use development project on First Hill with 95 assisted living units and this new 79-unit assisted living community coming to Eastlake.


A New Standard for Seattle Assisted Living

This new construction is essential to keep up with the growing demand for senior living in Seattle. With this in mind, from downtown Seattle and the surrounding hills to Redmond and Shoreline all the way down to Seatac and Kent, you can more than likely already find great options in your neighborhood. This includes amenities and care services that speak to your personal priorities and financial resources. Indeed, the overall status of the local assisted living industry is overwhelmingly positive. More than just banishing the dark ages of the old nursing home industry, Seattle is looking to take the quality of life for its senior residents to a higher level.

The full-service storage from Closetbox is itself one of the innovations being leveraged by the assisted living industry. We provide pickup, digital inventory, and on-demand return for about the same price as traditional storage. Why does this matter for senior living? Rather than drab-looking, space-hogging storage units, facilities are packing their available space with more amenities, services, and common gathering areas. We provide our full service solution for te upcoming Somerby Senior Living Community, with regular pickups and deliveries. And this is exactly what you can expect to find from these featured senior living communities listed below.
