The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Vancouver, WA

Located on the banks of the Columbia River in the state of Washington, Vancouver provides scenic views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. St. Helens. It’s an easy two-hour drive to the rugged shores of the Pacific Ocean and slightly over an hour to the Cascade Mountain Range. In 2017, Vancouver was named the sixth-best city in the country in which to retire. A vibrant arts and culture scene and access to a variety of outdoor activities helped put Vancouver near the top of the list.

Those over the age of 65 comprise slightly more than 15% of the total population of Vancouver, and Washington residents enjoy a lack of personal income tax, which can help stretch retirement budgets. There are several hospitals in Vancouver, and the state-of-the-art teaching facility, Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, is located across the river in Portland, Oregon. Vancouver’s weather is cool and wet during winter and warm and sunny in the summer.  

Note: Information for Vancouver was not available, so data from the nearest city, Portland, Oregon, was used.
