    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Petersburg City

    Petersburg, Virginia, played an important role in the Battle of Old Men and Young Boys in the Civil War, but today, the area is a destination for retirees. Nearly 17% of the city's population is aged 65 years or older, and the city has eight assisted living facilities to accommodate the needs of this demographic, as well as another four in areas like Chester and Hopewell that are nearby. 

    Petersburg City assisted living facilities, as well as those in the rest of the state, are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. These facilities are broken down into assisted living care and residential living care depending on the level of care the facility provides.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Petersburg City

    • The Petersburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southside Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Residents of Petersburg can enjoy an overall 10% lower cost of living compared to the U.S. average. However, healthcare costs run about 8% higher than the rest of the state and country, which may make assisted living care a bit more expensive.
    • For seniors with COPD or other respiratory issues, the air quality in Petersburg can make it easier to breathe than other areas. The air pollution index is 74% better than the U.S. average, and the air quality index is 22% better.
    • Seniors who are receiving Social Security income won't have to worry about taxes in Virginia. Other retirement income, such as IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions are only partially taxed, which can mean more money in the budget for Petersburg seniors.
    • Seniors looking for warmer temps and less snow will do well in Petersburg, where summer highs hover around 90 degrees and only 6 inches of snow fall in the average year, compared to the U.S. average of 28.
    • Crime rates in Petersburg are much higher than the rest of the state. Property crime rates run about 189% compared to the Virginia average, and violent crime is 382% higher. However, most facilities have security measures in place to help residents stay secure.
