Whether you live in an assisted living facility or not - the City of Newport News is a great place for seniors to live and enjoy! Aside from being just a stone's throw from the ocean, the city itself has numerous support services to make sure seniors have everything they need to stay happy and healthy. Many of these services are detailed on the Newport News website. In addition to about a half dozen senior centers, the city Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism has a Mature Adult program that promotes quality services and programs that are geared to heighten the participant's quality of life. For a complete listing of these programs, call 926-1446. The city also has a good retired & senior volunteer program - a great way for Newport News seniors to stay active and engaged! This program is for seniors over the age of 55, and the program offers volunteers an extensive benefit package. For information on the Newport News seniors volunteer program, call 595-9037.
Unfortunately, for most families researching assisted living, it is their first, and sometimes only time they will do it. This means that they haven't had practice, or experience researching facilities.
I say 'unfortunately' since there is a lot of information out there, some of it highly questionable in terms of who is behind it, and what their motives are. This is where we try to be different with Assisted Living Directory. Our goal is to provide straightforward information that is highly useful, and trustworthy, and to also offer help, only if you need it.
Additionally, we aren't afraid to list, or link to other excellent sites and agencies. With this in mind, for Newport News, we recommend always that you become familiar with the Peninsula Area Agency on Aging - an agency that is managed through state and federal resources. Here you may find caregiver support & services; senior care help, advice and programs, as well as a great, trustworthy place to ask a question if you are just starting your research.
For facilities, we have listed the assisted living residences in Newport News on this page, and each may be contacted directly and safely. We also include video tours whenever available! Intro by D. Besnette
