8 Signs It Might Be Time For Assisted Living In West Seattle

You may remember the old game of “Twenty Questions.” When it comes to choosing a retirement community in the Seattle area, asking questions is not a game, because the answers you get can have a significant impact on your lifestyle.  If you’re thinking about entering a retirement community—or choosing one for a family member—you probably have a lot of questions. That’s a good thing! If you’re like a lot of people, however, there are times when the some of the questions you want to ask temporarily slip your mind.
