What to Consider About Assisted Living in Manassas

The Northern Virginia town of Manassas is just a short drive outside the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and is best known for its rich American history, including being the site of the Battle of Bull Run fought during the Civil War. Beyond these historical foundations, Manassas is a also a charming community that is ideal for seniors, who comprise over 9 percent of the community's population. There are 50 assisted living facilities in the Manassas area, though many of these also serve the D.C. suburbs of Fairfax and Centreville. The Virginia Department of Social Services regulates and licenses all of these ALFs.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Manassas

  • Manassas weather averages are consistent with the four seasons, so seniors will need a regular rotation of clothing throughout the year. Winter lows are in the mid-20s and Springs are usually quite cold until May. Summer highs peak in the upper 80s for July and August.

  • The air quality in Manassas is good to fair throughout the year, due primarily to the pollution from the nearby Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. While it doesn’t necessarily damage a senior's health, it can lead to shortness of breath or other minor breathing issues over time.

  • When it comes to cost of living in Manassas, it is predictably more expensive to live in than the state of Virginia or the national averages as a whole. Most of this is due to housing, which is almost double the national average. However, seniors will have to pay more for things on a daily basis like groceries, utilities and transportation are also noticeably higher as well.

  • The Manassas crime rate is higher than the state of Virginia average but lower than the national average overall. Because of this, it is considered 29 percent safer than most American cities, which is something seniors should be aware of when venturing around town.

  • The Area Agency on Aging in Prince William County, where Manassas is located in Virginia, offers a number of different senior services, including transportation around the area. Senior discounts are available to those who are 65 years of age or older on various forms of public transportation, like bus fares on the PRTC or train fares on Amtrak.

  • Manassas has no/few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in the Fairfax / Washington D.C. area.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Manassas

An Auxiliary Grant is available to offset the cost of assisted living. The Alzheimer’s Assisted Living Waiver is a Medicaid waiver created by the state of Virginia meant to pay for assisted living facilities to those who are 55 years or older and are suffering from Alzheimer’s or a related form of dementia. However, it will only be covered by the state’s Medicaid program if the ALF that the senior is moving into is considered a “safe and secure” environment.
