What to Consider About Assisted Living in Newport News

The Virginia Department of Social Services regulates assisted living facilities in Newport News and the rest of the state. This department sets minimum standards for the scope of care assisted living communities must provide and outlines rules for medication assistance, nutrition services and environmental accommodations. It also fields and investigates reports of abuse, neglect or exploitation.   

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Newport News

  • Seniors in Newport News don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits. While other types of retirement income are subject to state taxation, there’s a large deduction seniors can claim to minimize the financial burden. This may leave more money available for assisted living fees.  
  • Newport News ranks as one of the warmer cities in Virginia. Late spring and early autumn have the most comfortable months of the year, with high temperatures around 80 degrees. July is the hottest month, with highs near 90 degrees, and summers tend to be humid. Winter temperatures are mild, with daytime temperatures around 50 degrees, and the city only gets about 5 inches of snow. Assisted living facilities plan indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year, making it easy for residents to enjoy comfortable weather and stay indoors when temperatures are unpleasant.  
  • According to crime statistics from the FBI, violent and property crime rates have been relatively high in Newport News in recent years. In 2019, violent crime occurred at a rate of about 596 incidents per 100,000 people compared to respective state and national rates of 208 and 379. Property crime is more prevalent, with a rate of 2,529 versus 1,643 for the state and 2,110 nationally, but it’s been trending downward for the past two decades. Assisted living facilities keep residents safe through measures such as high-security locks and alarm systems.  
  • Newport News is home to two hospitals, including Riverside Regional Medical Center and Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital. In general, health care costs are a little high here, with fees for services such as dental care and doctor’s office visits exceeding the national average by about 12%. Also, there are about 10% fewer doctors here than in the typical U.S. city. To promote access to care, many assisted living facilities have visiting physicians and licensed health care providers on staff.  
  • The overall cost of living in Newport News is about 10% below the state and national averages. This may let older adults maintain their standard of living throughout their retirement years and result in competitive assisted living rates.
