    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Virginia Beach City

    Settlers first came to the Virginia Beach area in 1607, and today, residents and visitors can still see where this happened at First Landing State Park. More than 14% of the Virginia Beach City's 450,000 population are seniors aged 65 years or older, and to help provide care for this demographic, there are 16 assisted living facilities.

    The Virginia Department of Social Services is responsible for regulating assisted living throughout the state. It separates assisted living facilities by the level of care they provide, with residential living care facilities providing less assistance than assisted living care homes. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Virginia Beach City

    • Seniors moving to the Virginia Beach area will have plenty of opportunities to get outdoors. Summer highs average in the upper 80s, and the area gets 213 sunny days per year on average, compared to the U.S. average of 205. Winter lows usually don't dip below freezing, which is a plus for seniors with arthritis or other joint conditions.
    • The cost of living in Virginia Beach could be an issue for seniors trying to make their retirement income stretch. Health care costs come in about 14% higher than the U.S. average, and groceries and transportation are also higher than both the national and state averages.
    • Virginia Beach is serviced by Hampton Roads Transit, which takes riders to popular destinations within the city, including the beach and shopping districts. Seniors aged 65 or older can qualify for discounted fares.
    • According to the numbers, the Virginia Beach area is a relatively safe place to live, with violent crime rates 64% lower than the national average and property crime rates 18% lower. The most common crime by far is theft, so seniors may want to discuss how to keep their possession safe while in assisted living.
    • Virginia Beach City seniors will be able to take advantage of the state's $12,000 deduction available for retirement income as well as the low property and sales tax rates. Social Security income is not taxed.
