    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Charlottesville

    Seniors seeking happiness just might want to call Charlottesville home. This Virginia city, which routinely ranks highly on travel lists, was named the third happiest city in the U.S. in 2017, thanks to its beauty, diversity and charm. Charlottesville is home to 11 assisted living facilities, with another two nearby. In Charlottesville, along with the rest of Virginia, assisted living facilities are regulated and licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. The state defines these facilities as non-medical residences where seniors receive personal and health care services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Charlottesville

    • Seniors living in Charlottesville will experience a wide range of temperatures throughout the year. Average high temperatures are 45 degrees in January and 87 degrees in July. The area also sees about 16 inches of snowfall every year, making it suitable for seniors who enjoy all four seasons.

    • Charlottesville's cost of living is higher than the national average. As a result, seniors can expect assisted living costs to be higher than average as well.

    • Crime in Charlottesville is higher than average. Both violent crime rates and property crime rates exceed the Virginia and national averages. A senior's chances of being a victim of a property crime in the city is about 1 in 33.

    • Seniors in Virginia won't have their social security income taxed, which results in more money in the bank for assisted living expenses.

    • The Charlottesville Area Transit, or CAT, operates fixed route buses that run throughout the city. Some seniors may be eligible to use paratransit services, which include a reservation-based, shared-ride, door-to-door program for those individuals who cannot use the fixed route buses.

    • The Charlottesville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the University of Virginia Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
