What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mechanicsville

Assisted living facilities in Virginia are regulated by the state through the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, Adult Protective Services Division. The division publishes rules for facilities to follow, enforces best practices and conducts inspections to monitor for compliance.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mechanicsville

  • The cost of living in Mechanicsville is slightly higher than the national average. With the U.S. average being 100, Mechanicsville rates 101.7. This is lower than the average for Virginia at large, which rates 104.2 on the same scale.
  • Crime rates in Mechanicsville are generally low. Property crime rates are not far below the national average, at 34.2 versus the national rate of 35.4. Where Mechanicsville excels is in its very low violent crime rate. On a scale where the national figure is 22.7, Mechanicsville rates just 16.1.
  • Mechanicsville has a balmy summer climate, which is typical of Northern Virginia. This area gets less than half the national average for snowfall and receives more than 200 sunny days a year. Winters are mild, and spring and fall tend to be temperate with relatively low humidity.
  • Senior health indicators are fairly good for Mechanicsville. For example, the cost of health care is about 8% lower than the national average. Water quality rates 55 out of 100 nationwide, but Mechanicsville earns an impressive 81. Advanced senior care is available at several local facilities, including Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center.
  • Virginia is moderately friendly to seniors with a fixed income from retirement. Seniors’ Social Security stipends, for example, are not taxed at the state level, though other types of retirement income may be. Income from dedicated retirement savings instruments, such as a 401(k) and IRA, may be taxed, but seniors in Virginia are generally eligible for up to a $12,000 deduction on their income from these sources.
