    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Huntington

    Huntington is situated on the Ohio River at the point where West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky all come together, making it a part of the largest inland port in the nation. The city is inhabited by over 46,000 residents, about 15% of whom are aged 65 and over.  

    Seniors who need assistance with some activities of daily living reside in one of the area's 11 assisted living facilities, five of which are located in Huntington proper. Assisted living facilities here may also be called assisted living residences or residential care communities. The primary difference between these two types of facilities is that residents in the latter must be able to leave the facility without assistance in the event of an emergency. Both of these facilities are governed by the Department of Health and Human Resources
