    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Winchester

    Located in Northern Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester is steeped in American history from the Revolutionary War through the Civil War. It was known as the first city south of the Potomac to install electricity city-wide and currently has ten major highways, ranging between regional and interstate, running through it.

    Seniors who live in this area and need help with daily tasks can choose from  17 assisted living facilities in the Winchester area, all of which are strictly regulated and licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Winchester

    • Weather in Winchester is known to have cool winters and hot, muggy summers. Average lows are freezing or below from November through March most years, while summer highs will peak in the upper 80s.

    • The air quality in Winchester is below the national average with a score of 52, according to Sperlings Best Places. The U.S. average air quality score is 58, meaning it's not the most ideal air for seniors to breath on a regular basis, yet shouldn't lead to real health problems.

    • It is surprisingly expensive to live in Winchester, Virginia, with cost of living averages topping both state and national medians. And it’s not just due to higher housing rates — a number of other daily necessities like groceries, health care and utilities are over both the state and national averages, making day-to-day life more expensive.

    • Winchester’s crime rate is higher than the state average overall. It is only slightly higher when it comes to violent crime, but significantly higher when it comes to property crime. This makes it only safer than 18 percent of U.S. cities.

    • The Shenandoah Area Agency on Aging (SAAA) has vans and buses that will provide rides for seniors over the age of 60 to and from the senior centers around the Shenandoah Valley, along with Winchester. These vans and buses also deliver meals on wheels at lunchtime. Another service provided by SAAA called WellTran also provides inexpensive transportation to seniors in the area.

    • The Winchester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Valley Health Winchester Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Winchester
