In West Virginia, assisted living facilities are referred to as assisted living residences (ALRs) are licensed through the state's Department of Health and Human Resources, Bureau for Public Health, Office of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification.

Seniors have three assisted living facilities available within Lerona and eight others in nearby towns.
