What to Consider About Assisted Living in Abingdon

The Virginia Department of Social Services oversees assisted living facilities in Abingdon and the rest of the state. It licenses two types of facilities, including residential living care for those with minimal care needs and assisted living care for those who need more extensive help with daily activities. The department also outlines the rules these facilities follow.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Abingdon

  • Seniors in Abingdon pay state income taxes on most types of retirement income with the exception of Social Security benefits, which aren’t taxable in Virginia. However, seniors can deduct up to $12,000 of their taxable income, leaving more money in the bank for local assisted living expenses.
  • Data from the American Lung Association shows that the metropolitan area that Abingdon is located in ranks among the cleanest metro areas in the nation for 24-hour particle pollution. However, annual particle pollution and ozone pollution levels are comparatively high. Seniors in assisted living facilities have access to indoor recreational amenities and activities, letting them stay inside when the air quality outside is potentially harmful.
  • Mountain Lynx Transit provides public transportation in Abingdon and operates two loops, letting residents visit destinations without relying on a private vehicle. This gives assisted living residents an alternative to transport services available through their facility.
  • Compared to the rest of Virginia, Abingdon is an affordable place to live, letting many seniors maintain a high standard of living throughout retirement. On a 100-point cost of living index based on a national average of 100, the city rates 83.9. This is about 20 points lower than the Virginia norm, indicating that the city may be a good option for prospective assisted-living residents with limited budgets.
  • The city’s property crime rate is consistent with state and national norms but violent crime occurs at a much lower rate than in typical Virginia and U.S. cities. On a 100-point crime index, the city scores 32.8 for property crime compared to the national score of 35.4. Violent crime is uncommon with a rating of 11.5 versus 22.7 nationally. This may appeal to seniors considering the region for long-term care.
  • Abingdon gets about 12 inches of annual snowfall and 45 inches of rain, and year-round temperatures range from lows of 23 degrees in the winter to summer highs of 84 degrees. This city is among the cooler options in Virginia and may make it a good option for those who are sensitive to extreme temperatures.
