    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lynchburg City

    Lynchburg is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is named for its founder, John Lynch. In 1757, Lynch, at 17 years old, started a ferry service across the James River. A little over 100 years later, a system of public schools was established in Lynchburg. The schools' superintendent was a man named Abram Frederick Biggers, who was the great-grandson of John Lynch. Today, this city has over 82,000 residents and a large senior community that makes up 14% of the population. 

    Seniors who are looking for assisted living facilities in central Virginia have a dozen facilities to choose from in Lynchburg. These facilities, as with all assisted living facilities in the state, are governed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lynchburg City

    • July highs in Lynchburg reach an average of 85.7 degrees, making it among the cooler cities in the state, and January lows are around 25 degrees. The region receives just 14 inches of annual snowfall. Seniors may want to seek out an assisted living facility that provides individual climate control to ensure their year-round comfort. 
    • The overall cost of living in Lynchburg is about 12% below the national average and roughly 25% below the statewide average, which may make it a good option for seniors seeking out a budget-friendly city for their retirement.  
    • Lynchburg seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits. While other types of retirement income are taxable, retirees may claim a large tax deduction to minimize the expense and leave more money in their budget for local assisted living expenses.  
    • The Lynchburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Centra Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Public transit in Lynchburg is provided by the Greater Lynchburg Transit Company. GLTC operates over a dozen fixed routes throughout the city, which seniors age 65 and over can ride for half-fare.  
    • Lynchburg has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Central Virginia Alliance for Community Living, an organization that provides information on mobility assistance programs and other local resources, as well as one senior center.
