    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Princeton

    One of the mandated goals of Princeton, West Virginia, is to “create a comfortable haven for the elderly,” indicating the area’s senior population, at 20.7% of the population, is treated with respect. This small city has two assisted living facilities available to help those seniors who need extra help with daily activities, and there are five more in the nearby towns of Lerona and Bluefield.

    In Princeton and in the entire state of West Virginia, these facilities are known as both assisted living residences and residential care communities, both of which are licensed by the Department of Health and Human Resources.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Princeton

    • West Virginia partially taxes retirement savings account income, pensions and Social Security income, which might benefit Princeton seniors with fixed incomes.
    • Princeton’s cost of living is 79.8, significantly lower than both the state and national averages. Although seniors can expect to pay less for groceries and transportation here than they would in other cities throughout West Virginia and the nation as a whole, they can expect to pay more for healthcare, which may be a concern to seniors with chronic health issues.
    • Princeton seniors with chronic respiratory conditions do not need to worry about going outdoors in the city. The city has an air quality rating that is 15 points higher than the national average of 58.
    • Seniors may want to take safety precautions whether out on the town or relaxing at home in Princeton. The city has a violent crime rating of 33.5 and a property crime rating of 55.5, both significantly higher than the respective national averages of 22.7 and 35.4. Seniors may want to keep a close eye on their belongings and ensure that prospective facilities have safety protocols in place to keep them safe.
    • Summers in Princeton are comfortable with highs rarely rising above 81 degrees. Winters, however, are cooler with lows dipping down to 22. The sun shines over Princeton 155 days per year, 50 less than the national average, which might be a deterrent to seniors who enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors.
    • The Princeton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Princeton Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
