    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Roanoke City

    With a lively cityscape complemented by a vast, scenic view of the surrounding Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains of the Appalachian range, Roanoke lets seniors enjoy both urban living and the natural beauty of southwestern Virginia. The Star City of the South, as it sometimes called, has 16 assisted living facilities (ALFs) which are defined by the state as non-medical residential settings that provide or coordinate personal and medical care for four or more adults. These ALFs are regulated by the Virginia Department of Social Services, Division of Licensing Programs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Roanoke City

    • Roanoke is one of the cleanest metropolitan areas in the country in terms of air quality as ranked by the American Lung Association. This is a great advantage for seniors with respiratory concerns.
    • Seniors may enjoy affordable living in Roanoke as aside from the city’s low cost of living, the state of Virginia doesn’t tax social security income. While pensions and retirement benefits are partially taxable, sales and property taxes are relatively low.
    • As a transportation hub in western Virginia, Roanoke has a regional airport, and the local bus system lets seniors travel around the city and to other areas in Roanoke Valley and New River Valley. Valley Metro gives fare discounts to adults 65+, offers paratransit services and runs the Star Line trolley that provides free rides from downtown to the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.
    • Roanoke is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
