What to Consider About Assisted Living in Elkton

Elkton is a town in Rockingham County, Virginia and is part of the Harrisonburg metropolitan area, which is home to an estimated 54,000 residents. Nearly 10% of the area's population is aged 65 and older, and many may require full-time residential care in assisted living facilities. There are two facilities in Elkton they can choose from, as well as another five in surrounding areas. 

Assisted living facilities in Virginia provide 24-hour supervision and care to their residents. Residential living care offers a lower level of care to seniors who are capable of evacuating facilities on their own in the event of an emergency. All assisted living in Virginia is monitored and must adhere to the rules that are set forth by the Virginia Department of Social Services
