What to Consider About Assisted Living in Follansbee

Follansbee is a small city in Brooke County, West Virginia, that's situated along the banks of the Ohio River. The county is home to an estimated 22,200 residents and nearly 25% of the population is aged 65 or older. There are two assisted living facilities in Follansbee that provide residential care to senior citizens, as well as an additional six in surrounding areas. 

In Follansbee, and throughout West Virginia, facilities that provide assisted living to seniors are known as either assisted living residences or residential care communities. While both provide a similar level of care, seniors living in residential care communities must be capable of self-preservation should an emergency occur. All assisted living facilities in West Virginia are regulated by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Follansbee

  • The Follansbee area has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Brooke County Committee on Aging, which provides local resource referrals and a variety of workshops on topics such as finance and nutrition, as well as one senior center. 
  • Follansbee's weather is seasonal with an average of 28 inches of snow during the winter and average high temperatures of 83 degrees in July; however, the city only gets 165 sunny days per year, which is 51 days less than in the average U.S. city, which may be disappointing for seniors who enjoy spending time in the sunshine.
  • Follansbee is a budget-friendly location for senior citizens with an overall cost of living that's 21% less than in the average U.S. city.
  • Follansbee's crime rates are low. In fact, the city is safer than 85% of comparable cities in the U.S. Seniors and their loved ones can feel safe knowing there's little chance of becoming a victim of crime in the city. 
  • Although seniors in West Virginia are required to pay income tax on their retirement income, they are allowed a rather large deductible when filing, which helps to make Follansbee an affordable location for assisted living.
  • Follansbee has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Steubenville, OH.
