Adult Family Homes Olympia WA is a term often used to describe a variety of senior living options. You can learn more about the differences among senior living options on our Living Options page. Assisted Living Options is a FREE service that helps families uncover the best adult family home options in Olympia WA based on their unique needs. Adult Family Homes in Olympia WA must meet a strict set of standards in order to be represented by Assisted Living Options. Adult Family Homes are smaller, more intimate settings that may be more comfortable to someone who is making a transition from their own home to an environment where they will receive more assistance based on their individual needs.

Other living options may include choosing an assisted living facility. Learn more about the differences between a facility being categorized as an adult family home (AFH), as compared to an assisted living facility, on our Living Options page.

Here at Assisted Living Options we help each family understand their long and short term goals and help you discover how the various adult family homes in the Olympia WA area will help you meet those objectives.

We do not represent all adult family homes in the Olympia area, only the best.

We currently represent 50 Adult Family Homes within a 10 mile radius of Olympia WA. These Olympia WA adult family homes have been carefully selected after a thorough inspection of their facility, its services and care staff and the annual review completed by DSHS. They must meet my criteria for quality and  get an answer from me of “yes” to the question, ”Would I put my own mother and father there?”

Nancy was so compassionate

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it has been having Nancy help us find a place for my Mom who has dementia. Nancy was so incredible and helpful especially at a time when we were, as can be imagined, having one of the most difficult family events ever. Nancy was so compassionate more »

Thank you so much

Hi Nancy, I want to thank you on behalf of my brothers and I for helping us find a place for our mother. I was at a loss as to how to go about things until I got hold of you. I’m sure we would still be looking had it not been for your help. more »

My cousin is very happy now

Thank you for all that you did for my cousin… She may have been reluctant at first, but she is very happy now (and much safer). You played an important part in this transition.

Positive spin on the transition.

Talked to mom today and heard no regrets (after her move to assisted living). I give you a lot of the credit… you really helped to put a positive spin on the whole transition.

A mere thanks hardly covers it

Picking me up, handling the walker every time, generally bolstering me mentally; a mere thanks hardly covers it all!

Good fit to Mothers needs

Thanks Nancy for responding so quickly to my plea for help. I couldn’t have done it without you. Finding a home for my mother so quickly and a good fit to her needs. I now know I would have made a critical mistake if I had done this on my own. Your guidance in knowing more »

Good care of my Dad

I can’t thank you enough for recommending the house my Dad is living in. Joyce and Sandy are great, along with the other gals. They take such good care of my Dad and I think he really is enjoying living there. It has been a great move for him.

Wonderful to work with

Hi Nancy! This is a hello and thank-you from Duane B’s family. You miraculously found him an assisted living place right after Christmas 2011. He was 96 at the time and in a “spend down” period. You found him a wonderful place in Kirkland. Anyway, I was trying to find something else in my e-mails more »
