    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Martinsburg

    Martinsburg is recognized as the fastest-growing city in West Virginia. The War Memorial Park is a popular hub, featuring a community swimming pool and hosting numerous events throughout the year. In spite of its proximity to Washington, DC, the city maintains its small-town feel and is home to just over 17,000 residents, about 14% of whom are seniors. 

    In Martinsburg, as in all of the state, assisted living facilities are officially called assisted living residences or residential care communities, depending on the ambulatory abilities of the populations they serve. Both types of facilities are licensed by the Department of Health and Human Resources. Martinsburg has four assisted living facilities, and there are seven more nearby.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Martinsburg

    • West Virginia is among the few states that impose state income tax on all types of retirement income, including Social Security benefits. However, seniors can claim a large deduction against that income, which may leave more money in the budget for assisted living in Martinsburg.   
    • The overall cost of living in Martinsburg is about 3% below the national average but about 13% higher than the statewide average, which may be a consideration for seniors seeking out affordable assisted living.  
    • Summers in Martinsburg are warm, with July highs around 86 degrees, making it among the warmest cities in the state. Winters are chilly with lows around 21 degrees, and the city receives 21 inches of snow on average, which is about 12 inches less than the statewide average and seven inches less than the national average. This may appeal to seniors who rely on mobility aids.  
    • Crime is relatively prevalent in Martinsburg, with violent and property-related crimes occurring at a rate higher than in the nation as a whole. Seniors may want to find an assisted living facility that provides security features like alarm systems and surveillance cameras.  
    • The Martinsburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Berkeley Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
      • Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority operates fixed bus routes throughout the Martinsburg region. Medicare beneficiaries and seniors age 60 and over are eligible for the half-fare program.
