What to Consider About Assisted Living in Reston

Situated 20 miles northeast of Washington, D.C., Reston, Virginia, is a census-designated place with over 1,350 acres of open space. Reston was named one of Money Magazine's Best Places to Live in Virginia in 2017 because of its many golf courses, lakes and nature trails as well as the plethora of dining and shopping opportunities that offer seniors outdoor recreational opportunities and culture.

Seniors in the area seeking assisted living should note that the Virginia Department of Social Services regulates assisted living facilities (ALF) throughout Reston. There are 62 ALFs in the greater Reston area, with four directly within the town and 58 in neighboring areas. ALFs are not considered nursing homes, as the primary purpose of an ALF, according to the state of Virginia, is to provide personal care services, 24-hour supervision and assistance for four or more adults. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Reston

 

  • Reston has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Reston Association, an organization that provides seniors with various trips, tours and events to enhance the well-being of citizens aged 55 and up.
  • In Reston as well as the rest of the state of Virginia, Social Security retirement benefits are not taxed. In addition, pension income and retirement account withdrawals are deductible up to $12,000 for seniors, allowing more to be spent on assisted living costs.
  • Public transportation is provided by the Reston Internal Bus System's five circulating routes throughout the town. For seniors looking to travel outside of the area, the Washington Metro provides half-price transportation to Washington, D.C.
  • Because Reston's air quality is considered 13 percent worse than the average air quality across the nation, seniors who enjoy spending time outside might find their respiratory illnesses aggravated.
  • The cost of living in Reston is nearly 40 points more expensive than the average cost of living in Virginia. Though average utility and health costs are cheaper in Reston than throughout the state, housing costs are 105 points higher in Reston than in Pennsylvania.
  • The Reston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Reston Hospital Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
