Tacoma Assisted Living

About Tacoma Assisted Living

Welcome to the Tacoma Assisted Living section of The Eldercare Channel. For seniors who have mobility problems that make it impossible to reside within their own homes but who do not require the medical services provided by nursing home facilities, assisted living can provide an ideal option.  Assisted living facilities work to provide seniors with the assistance needed to complete tasks associated with daily living, such as eating, bathing, personal grooming, housekeeping, and more.  Most facilities operate along a continuum, affording seniors independence with the tasks they are capable of performing on their own while offering them assistance in the areas where it is needed. When looking for an assisted living facility, it is important to ask questions of staff members and residents alike.  You don’t just want to look at licensure, qualifications, and background checks; you want to find out what life is like in the facility on a daily basis.  Do residents feel safe and cared for?  Do they have a high quality of life?  Are there amenities or activities that help ensure that life within the facility is enjoyable? At The Eldercare Channel of Tacoma, WA, we want to help take some of the stress out of choosing an assisted living facility.  We work hard to provide information and resources that seniors and their caregivers need when making tough decisions.  Video host, Robert L. Michaels of Smith Alling, P.S. and The Eldercare Channel of Tacoma, WA has created the directory of area assisted living facilities found below in order to make it easier to contact the ones that might be a good fit for your family.
