    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salem

    Salem is a midsize town in Virginia with a lot of hometown pride in it's athletic teams. According to U.S. Census data, Salem has an adult population of 20,358, and 22 percent of those individuals are seniors. From farmers markets to a free city museum, seniors can find plenty to do in Salem, and 13 assisted living facilities in the town provide options for vibrant residential life for seniors who want scheduled social activities or assistance with daily living. Assisted living communities in Salem follow the regulations of the Virginia Department of Social Services, as do all ALFs in the state, to ensure safe, quality senior care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Salem

    • Salem's cost of living index is lower than both the state and national averages, with especially low costs of groceries, transportation and utilities bringing the number down. Seniors on limited retirement incomes may find that they are able to stretch that money to cover more necessities and extra goods and services.

    • The climate in Salem is the same as in nearby Roanoke, where the average annual temperature is just under 60 degrees F. Mountain weather keeps the spring and autumn months cool, and even summer months tend to be mild, so seniors can enjoy outdoor activities, including walking at Longwood Park or visiting the downtown duck pond. 

    • Salem has a robust arts and culture scene. Seniors can visit the Salem Museum, which offers free admission, browse numerous art galleries and antique stores in the quaint downtown or go underground at Dixie Caverns. Sports fans can catch home games for the minor league Salem Red Sox, and seniors can save money on Silver Sluggers ticket packages

    • The Salem area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Salem VA Medical Center and LewisGale Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Salem has a low crime rate, which has even decreased in recent years. Seniors are safer in Salem than in around 60 percent of other U.S. cities, so they can feel comfortable exploring most areas in the town.

    • Valley Metro, the public bus service in Roanoke County, also provides service in Salem. Bus stops are limited in the town itself, so seniors will have to get to the local Goodwill to catch a bus to the VA Hospital or Roanoke. Seniors do receive a discount on fares, paying only 85 cents, which is close to 50 percent off.
