The 9 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Kent, WA
Located in King County and the sixth-largest city in the state, Kent is a bedroom community for Seattle, which is 25 minutes to the north and Tacoma, which is 20 minutes to the south. After Seattle, Kent is the oldest city in Washington, incorporated in 1890. Weather is most pleasant in the summer months, with low humidity and abundant sunshine.
Being part of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area has many benefits, chief among them Kent’s proximity to the region’s services. Transportation to either Seattle or Tacoma is convenient thanks to light rail service, which seniors can ride for a discount. Kent is also less than 20 minutes from Sea-Tac airport. And even though Seattle offers countless cultural events, museums and shopping, Kent has its own share as well. Seniors interested in the arts can visit the Kent State University Museum, and those who prefer to take in a show at the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center. There is also Kent Station, a hub for shopping, dining and entertainment in the area.
The average monthly cost of assisted living in Kent, at $6,500, is significantly higher than the national average of $4,000 and also higher than the state average of $5,500. This rate also varies depending on the facility and the services offered.
