    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Morgantown

    Morgantown, West Virginia, is located in Monongalia County and has a population of nearly 30,000 people, 8% of whom are aged 65 or older.  Local seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors might like visiting the West Virginia Botanical Garden, which features local and exotic flora and fauna as well as whimsical tree carvings. 

    To support those in this age group who require assistance with the tasks of daily living, there are four assisted living facilities in Morgantown, with three more in nearby communities. In West Virginia, including Morgantown, these facilities are called as assisted living residences and residential care communities, and they are licensed by the Office of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification Division of the Department of Health and Human Resources.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Morgantown

    • Morgantown seniors benefit from West Virginia’s tax-friendly policies toward seniors. Pensions, retirement savings account withdrawals and Social Security benefits are only partially taxed. 
    • The Morgantown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Mon Health Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Morgantown's cost of living index is 96.7. That is 14% higher than the state average and on par with the national baseline of 100. Seniors and their families may expect to pay twice as much as the state average for housing costs, which may indirectly impact operating costs at nearby assisted living facilities.
    • Property crime and violent crime rates are on par with the national averages at 19 and 32.2, respectively. This may give seniors confidence while running errands or attending appointments in town.
    • Summers in Morgantown are hot and rainy, with July highs of 84 and 43 inches of annual rain, compared to the U.S. median of 38 inches. Although January lows hit 22, the annual snowfall in Morgantown matches the national average at 28 inches. Seniors moving here from other areas of West Virginia are likely to find the weather similar to what they're used to. There are 155 days in the town each year, 50 fewer days than the national average.
    • At 61, air quality in Morgantown is slightly above the national median of 58. This means seniors with COPD and asthma may not find their condition worsening as a result of air quality.
