    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mechanicsville

    Mechanicsville, Virginia, is a small city with around 37,000 people, and seniors who want to enjoy a less crowded urban area that still offers plenty of amenities may enjoy living here. Plus, Richmond is a short drive away, making it easy to access the excitement of a larger city.

    Older adults can settle in a variety of communities and housing options in the town, including assisted living facilities, which are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. Assisted living facilities provide independent living for seniors at various levels of the care spectrum, with staff on hand to provide help with activities of daily living or plan social and entertainment opportunities. Seniors can choose from four communities within the Mechanicsville corp limits and 37 additional facilities in nearby towns.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mechanicsville

    • Mechanicsville experiences all four seasons, making it an ideal location for seniors who love both the bright colors of spring and the earthy tones of fall. Snowfall is a given most years, but it's typically minimal and temporary, so seniors can spend time outdoors in every season.
    • The cost of living in Mechanicsville is slightly lower than the state average but a tad higher than the national average. Housing is expensive here, which won't be a concern for seniors opting for assisted living facilities. Groceries and transportation are on average less expensive than they are nationally, offering some money-saving options for older adults.
    • Mechanicsville does have a low crime rate when compared to national numbers. Pair this with the added security of life in an assisted living community, and seniors can be confident in their safety.
    • Sales tax is relatively low in Mechanicsville, since the city itself doesn't levy one and the county only levies a 1 percent sales tax. The total combined county/state sales tax amount is 5.3 percent, which may save seniors additional money when they shop for necessities.
    • The Mechanicsville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bon Secours Memorial Regional, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Mechanicsville is a short drive from Richmond, where seniors can access a wide-range of outdoor and cultural attractions. That includes Three Lakes Park & Nature Center, which offers hiking, fishing and picnic opportunities for seniors who enjoy exploring nature outside of their own community.
