    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Parkersburg

    Parkersburg is located beside the Ohio and Little Kanawha rivers in West Virginia. It is the third largest city in the state with a population of 29,675 people, 18.8% of whom are seniors. Parkersburg residents aged 65 years of age or older who need some help with their activities of daily living (ADLs) can choose from among the area's three assisted living facilities.

    In Parkersburg and throughout the rest of the state, these facilities are called Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) or Residential Care Communities (RCCs). ALRs and RCCs are regulated by the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR).
