What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norfolk City

Norfolk City, Virginia is the heart of the nine cities that make up the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Area. Originally founded 1619 by 150 volunteers, it currently has a population of 244,000 people, over 10 percent of whom are 65 years of age or older. Seniors needing some help with daily living activities can choose from 8 Assisted Living Facilities administered by Virginia's Department of Social Services in the city with another 36 in the surrounding area.

The state divides these facilities into two categories, residential living care and assisted living care, depending on their available services. Assisted living care facilities offer 24/7 nursing care and are designed for those who need extensive help with daily living activities. Residential living care facilities are for seniors who are mostly independent and in need of a minimum of assistance.
