    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Roanoke

    Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Roanoke, Virginia is a municipality of over 300,000 residents with a number of smaller surrounding cities. The city is known for its natural beauty, making it an ideal place for active seniors to enjoy a walk or drive through breathtaking vistas. There are 17 assisted living facilities in the area, all of which are licensed and regulated by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Roanoke

    • Weather in Roanoke, Virginia, follows four distinct seasons. Winter temperatures drop as low as 28 degrees, while summer highs hover in the upper 80s. The rest of the year is considered pleasant, light-jacket weather for senior residents.

    • The air quality in Roanoke is usually good throughout the year, as it is against the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia, which tends to filter out much of the pollution from the city. However, sometimes there is pollen in the air, which could cause breathing difficulties for seniors with respiratory issues.

    • According to Sperling's Best Places, Roanoke has an overall cost of living totaling 87 out of 100, which is lower than the state (107) and national (100) averages. This is due to a lower average housing cost of $144,600 in the area. Necessities like groceries, transportation and utilities are also well below the state and national averages, meaning seniors won't spend as much on a daily basis.

    • Roanoke’s crime rate is quite high for a city of its size, with its violent crime average at 4.18 per 1000 people. This is nearly double the state average of 2.18 and slightly higher than the national average of 4. Consequently, Roanoke is considered safer than just 7 percent of American cities, something seniors should take into consideration.

    • RADAR is a non-profit group that has been providing transportation for seniors, among others, in the Greater Roanoke Valley over the past 40 years. They have partnered with other city and county transit services to give discounted rides to seniors all over the metropolitan area.
    • The Roanoke area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Carillion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
