What to Consider About Assisted Living in Yorktown

Yorktown, situated on the southeast Virginia coast, was the home of the historical Battle of Yorktown during the Revolutionary War. Today, the city has art galleries, museums, festivals and markets for the area’s residents including a senior community that makes up more than 34% of the city’s total population.

Yorktown has two assisted living facilities within the city limits with 32 more located in nearby neighborhoods such as Williamsburg, Newport News and Hampton, to support seniors who need extra help with their personal care. In Yorktown, as is the case in all of Virginia, assisted living facilities are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Yorktown

  • Yorktown’s cost of living is 125.1, higher than both the Virginia average of 113.8 and the U.S. average of 100. Seniors with restrictive budgets may want to take the higher cost of living into consideration before deciding to retire in this city.
  • Social Security benefits are not taxed in Virginia, which could leave more money in the assisted living budget for Yorktown seniors.
  • The Yorktown area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Newport News.
  • Seniors with chronic respiratory conditions may find that their conditions don’t worsen when outside in Yorktown. The city has an air quality rating of 71, which is better than the national average of 58.
  • Seniors looking to retire in a safe city may enjoy living in Yorktown. The city has a violent crime rate of 9.3 and a property crime rate of 23.1, both notably lower than the respective national averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • Seniors who enjoy listening to the sound of raindrops on the roof might enjoy living in Yorktown, which receives 118 days with some type of precipitation each year. The city gets 47 inches of rain annually, almost 10 more than the national average of 38; and four inches of annual snowfall, 24 less than the national average of 28 inches. Summer highs in this city can reach 88 degrees and winter lows rarely drop below 31. Despite all the precipitation, this city still gets 213 sunny days each year, eight more than the national average of 205.
