Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lynchburg

  • On a 100-point index based on national living costs, Lynchburg scores 82, indicating that its cost of living is about 20% lower than the nationwide average. Housing costs are among the lowest in the state, which may drive down assisted living rates.
  • According to FBI data, the property crime rate in Lynchburg has been trending downward for the past 20 years and is consistent with the national rate. The number of violent crime occurrences generally exceeds the state rate per capita and is roughly equal to the national average. This may make assisted living a preferred alternative to living alone.
  • Lynchburg’s weather varies by season, with residents experiencing warm summers and chilly winters. Year-round temperatures range from 25-86 degrees, and the city gets about 14 inches of snow and 42 inches of rain annually. On a 10-point comfort index, the city is rated 8.3, indicating that its climate is more comfortable than most Virginia cities, making it a great option for those who enjoy outdoor activities.
  • Seniors in Lynchburg have numerous health care options available, which may make it easy to schedule medical appointments and find specialists. Per capita, there are about 395 doctors, exceeding the national average by nearly 50%. Among the region’s top hospitals are Centra Lynchburg General Hospital, which is located in Lynchburg proper, Centra Bedford Memorial Hospital in nearby Bedford and Augusta Health in Fishersville. 
  • Lynchburg’s air quality is very good and may benefit older adults with heart or breathing conditions. The American Lung Association gives the city the highest score for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution, and it recognizes Lynchburg as one of the cleanest metro areas in the nation for 24-hour particle pollution. 
  • Seniors in Lynchburg don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, and they may deduct up to $12,000 to minimize the tax burden from other types of retirement income. This may help older adults keep more of their income from savings and investments, making it easier to afford local long-term care costs.
