    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Petersburg City

    The site of battles in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, Petersburg, Virginia, is a city of great historical significance. Today, the vibrant community is still a hub of history and commerce. It is home to over 31,000 residents, with more than 16% of the population aged 65 and older.

    To serve the needs of this demographic, 12 assisted living facilities are available in the Petersburg region, including eight in the city proper. These facilities are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services to offer two levels of care, including residential living care and assisted living care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Petersburg City

    • Petersburg has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Tabernacle Life Center's Senior Citizen Program, an organization that has collaborated with the city's Parks & Leisure Services department to offer fitness classes, health seminars, social events and recreational activities, as well as several nearby senior centers.
    • The Petersburg Area Transit provides transportation services to residents of Petersburg, Hopewell, Colonial Heights and surrounding counties. It offers heavily reduced fares for eligible seniors. PAT also offers a number of specialized services, including a curb-to-curb transportation service for ADA qualified passengers and paratransit service for seniors 70 years and older.
    • Compared to both national and regional averages, crime rates in Petersburg are high. Violent crime scores 35.9 out of 100 and property crime is rated 45.7. National averages are 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories, respectively.
    • The overall cost of living in Petersburg is rated 90.8, which is lower than both the U.S. national average of 100 and Virginia state average of 113.8. This could help seniors afford the cost of care at an ALF.
    • While winters in Petersburg are mild in comparison to the average U.S. city, 90-degree temperatures and high levels of humidity seen throughout the summer months could be overwhelming for some seniors.
    • Petersburg has a rich arts and culture scene and a number of historical sites for seniors to explore. Some popular spots include Swift Creek Mill Theatre, the Ward Center for Contemporary Art, Centre Hill Museum and Petersburg National Battlefield.
