    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Virginia Beach City

    Virginia Beach is a coastal city that fosters a high quality of life for residents of all ages through their unique Blue Zones project. This project studies regions around the world where residents live the longest and works to encourage Virginia Beach residents to adopt lifestyle habits found in the healthiest global communities. Virginia Beach has an aging population, with seniors making up almost 13% of the city's 450,000 residents.  

    To accommodate seniors who need assistance with daily living activities, Virginia Beach has 16 assisted living facilities. In this city, as in the rest of Virginia, facilities are regulated by the Virginia Department of Social Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Virginia Beach City

    • In Virginia Beach, as in all of the state, Social Security income is not subject to state income tax. While other types of retirement income are taxable, a large portion of this income is tax-deductible, which may leave more money for assisted living expenses.
    • Public transportation in Virginia Beach is provided by Hampton Roads Transit. HRT operates nearly two dozen routes throughout the city and Paratransit services with three-quarters of a mile of their fixed routes. Seniors aged 65 and over and Medicare card holders are eligible for a discounted fare.  
    • The Virginia Beach area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Virginia Beach has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Mayor's Commission on Aging, an organization that organizes and facilitates programs to meet the health and safety, transportation and housing needs of local seniors, as well as seven senior centers.
    • Virginia Beach has a vibrant arts and culture scene and is home to several performing arts venues. The local senior center may take field trips to the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts or the Farm Bureau Live Amphitheatre, where visitors can enjoy live entertainment. 
      • While the overall cost of living for Virginia Beach is about 15% higher than the national average, it is only about 2% higher than the state average, which may make it a financially feasible option for seniors seeking budget-friendly assisted living.
