    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Blacksburg

    Blacksburg is home to the main campus of Virginia Tech, one of the largest universities in Virginia. In the southwest area of the state, the town has a population of more than 50,000. The median age of the townsfolk is 22, but Blacksburg has three assisted living facilities, and nine more are nearby for seniors who wish to live this area while receiving help with activities of daily living. The Virginia Department of Social Services licenses these facilities, which house at least four individuals at a time.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Blacksburg

    • Blacksburg falls close to many national weather averages. For example, it receives an average of 215 sunny days yearly, 40 inches of rain and 24 inches of snow. The national averages are 205 sunny days, 39 inches of rain and 26 inches of snow. Seniors may enjoy the mix of different weather types without too many extremes.

    • Housing tends to cost slightly less in Blacksburg than in other areas of Virginia. With 100 as the average cost of housing nationwide, Blacksburg scores 124 while Virginia averages 129. Seniors may pay more for assisted living than in some other states but less than they would in other parts of Virginia.

    • Crime is a concern for many seniors, but Blacksburg ranks favorably.  Its property crime rate, which includes burglary offenses, is 22.5 as opposed to the national average of 38.1. Meanwhile, the violent crime rate in the town is 28.2, and the national average is 31.1.

    • The American Lung Association ranks the Blacksburg area 144 out of 227 metro areas when it comes to high ozone days. It does get passing scores from the association on ozone pollution, 24-hour particle pollution and annual particle pollution. Air quality should not be a general concern for seniors, but there may be a few days each year when they are advised to stay inside.

    • Public transportation is readily available around the town via Blacksburg Transit, and senior citizens 65 and older can purchase discounted fares and passes. Public transportation is also available to destinations such as Christiansburg and Roanoke.

    • As is the norm with many college towns, Blacksburg offers some good arts and culture opportunities.  Top venues that can enrich seniors’ lives include the Moss Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech and the Lyric Theatre, both of which are wheelchair accessible.
