    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alexandria

    For seniors looking for big-city amenities in a small-town environment, Alexandria might be the place to call home. This suburb of Washington D.C. is less than 20 minutes from the nation's capital. As a result, seniors can enjoy the arts, culture and history of D.C., as well as its expansive public transportation network. 

    Seniors can choose from 12 assisted living facilities in Alexandria. Thanks to its location near Washington D.C., Alexandria features another 51 ALFs located nearby. The Virginia Department of Social Services regulates and licenses assisted living facilities in Alexandria, along with the rest of the state. Facilities licensed for assisted living care provide personal and health care services for its residents.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alexandria

    • Alexandria offers seniors all four seasons, with cold winters, warm springs, hot summers and cool falls. In January, average highs range in the 40s, while they rise to the upper 80s in the summer. In addition, Alexandria sees 40 inches of rain a year.

    • Seniors can expect to pay more to live in Alexandria. The city's cost of living is about 44 percent higher than the national average. As a result, assisted living costs are also higher.

    • Social security income is exempt from taxation in Virginia, which leaves more money in seniors' pockets to put toward assisted living costs.

    • There's no shortage of public transportation in Alexandria. Seniors can ride buses operated by the city's DASH system or the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's MetroBus. In addition, seniors can use the wheelchair-accessible Fairfax Connector or DC's Metrorail.

    • Alexandria is safer than 35 percent of U.S. cities. Both violent crime and property crime rates are are lower than the Virginia and national median.

    • The Alexandria area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Alexandria Health Care System and Inova Alexandria Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
