    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norfolk

    Norfolk is known for its water, including seven miles of Chesapeake Bay coastline and 144 miles of shoreline wrapped around the Bay, lakes and rivers. Seniors who love the water and want to call Norfolk home have countless outdoor opportunities in this waterfront city. Norfolk is home to nine assisted living facilities, with another 44 located in nearby cities like Portsmouth.

    Virginia's Department of Social Services operates and licenses assisted living facilities in Norfolk and throughout the state. The state defines assisted living care as those non-medical residences that provide moderate assistance, including personal and health care services, to its residents. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Norfolk

    • Seniors living in Norfolk will enjoy plenty of warm weather during the spring and summer months, with average highs peaking in July at 87 degrees. During the winter, average highs reach the upper 40s and low 50s. 

    • Cost of living in Norfolk is just under the national average. However, assisted living expenses are typically higher than average, which can put a strain on seniors' budgets.

    • Crime in Norfolk is a problem, with the city being safer than just 6 percent of U.S. cities. Violent crime and property crime rates both exceed Virginia and national averages. Property crime, in particular, is a problem, with seniors having a 1 in 24 chance of being the victim of a property crime like burglary or motor vehicle theft.

    • Virginia does not tax social security income, which means seniors will have some extra money in the budget to apply toward assisted living expenses.

    • The Hampton Roads Transit operates fixed route buses throughout Norfolk. Seniors, Medicare cardholders and individuals with disabilities receive reduced fares. In addition, buses include priority seating, wheelchair accessibility and low-floor kneeling buses for easier accessibility.

    • The Norfolk area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Norfolk and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Norfolk

    Norfolk seniors can receive financial assistance for assisted living expenses through one state program. The Virginia Department of Social Services' Auxiliary Grant Program offers an optional state supplement to age- and income-eligible seniors receiving supplemental security income. This need-based program can provide a monthly stipend that seniors can put toward assisted living costs. 

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Virginia page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage

    For more information about different ways to finance assisted living, visit our Assisted Living in Virginia page.

    Free Assisted Living Resources in Norfolk

    Norfolk and the surrounding area are home to numerous government agencies and non-profit organizations offering help for seniors searching for or currently residing in an assisted living community. These organizations can also provide assistance in a number of other eldercare services such as geriatric care management, elder law advice, estate planning, finding home care and health and wellness programs.

    To see a list of free assisted living resources in Norfolk, please visit our Assisted Living in Virginia page.
