The historic town of Williamsburg, Virginia is an independent city within James City County and enjoys a humid subtropical climate of warm summers and mostly mild weather year-round. This small town offers many historical attractions along with recreational and urban living amenities. The nearby living-history museum of Colonial Williamsburg is an excellent example of the area’s historic character, as well as the colonial Jamestown settlement. Many fine dining options dot the town and cultural events are numerous. Williamsburg’s U.S. Census-estimated population is 14,954, of which 15.7% are 65 years of age or older, a bit above the 16.5% average for the country as a whole.

High-quality medical care options are available inside and near Williamsburg. These include the Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center and Riverside Doctors’ Hospital. The average cost of homemaker and home health aide services is $3,813 in the region. This is much less expensive than the respective national average prices of $4,481 and $4,576 for these services according to Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 data.
