West Virginia Assisted Living Directory

About the facility:

Near the east coast of the united states you’ll find a beautiful state full of mountains named West Virginia. This state is about midway between the northernmost and southernmost states on the east coast, making it a prime location for someone to reside if they want to be close to relatives at either end. Whether your loved one has family in New York, Washington DC or Miami florida, West Virginia will make them accessible to all.

 

West Virginia has a humid subtropical climate with hot humid summers and cold winters. Many people love the variation of seasons in West Virginia compared to much less varied weather in states like California or Florida.

 

Another appealing attribute of West Virginia is their assisted living cost average doesn’t rise above the national average. Unlike states such as Delaware or Maryland, you likely won’t be paying more that 3,700 a month for your loved one’s living arrangement in West Virginia.

Besides the prices of facilities found in West Virginia, it’s also very important to research the facilities you’re interested in, making sure they are properly licensed and have no complaints filed against them. Many people would love to save time and simply trust what a facility’s website says about their experience, staff, and certifications, but websites can make facilities look much different than they actually are.

 

It is important to both do further research online about a facility, as well as visit the facility in person. You may also learn a great deal from talking to the staff yourself, and interviewing current residents and the family members you see at the facility when you go for a tour.

 

Each state also has a Long Term Care Ombudsman website that will give you a lot of useful information, as well as websites with access to assisted living laws that you can review. Your loved one’s next season of life depends on how thorough you are in finding a facility that is trustworthy and caring.
