    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Williamsburg

    Williamsburg is located in central Virginia near Richmond. It's home to a living history museum, Colonial Williamsburg, and is rich in U.S. history dating back to pre-Revolutionary days. The town has a population of 15,000, with 15% being seniors aged 65 and older. This is an age group that will likely need housing in an assisted living community as they age. In Williamsburg, there are 10 assisted living facilities to accommodate these seniors. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the Virginia Department of Social Services in the state including Williamsburg.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Williamsburg

    • Weather in Williamsburg includes all four seasons. Winter temperatures hover around 30 degrees, and there is usually light snowfall. In the summer, high temperatures reach the high 80s. Most seniors with health conditions aggravated by extreme heat or cold may be comfortable here. 
    • Williamsburg's overall cost of living is high at 114.3, compared to the U.S. average of 100. Housing costs come in at 159.5, which may cause assisted living communities to have higher operating costs. This, in turn, may make residents fees higher.
    • Crime rates are measured on a scale of 1 to 100 in the U.S., with 1 being the safest. Williamsburg has a lower than average overall crime rate, with violent crimes ranking at 11.2 compared to the national average of 22.7 and property rimes rating 21.4 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4.
      Air quality in Williamsburg is 65, measured on a scale of 1 to 100; the national average is 58. Seniors with respiratory concerns may find it easier to breathe here. Water quality is 90, compared to the U.S. average of 55.
    • Virginia grants specific tax breaks for senior citizens over 65. These include real estate taxes and personal property taxes on one vehicle. While the criteria for the tax breaks may change from year to year, much seniors budgeting for assisted living may find the extra money useful. 
    • The Williamsburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
