Norfolk has a lot to offer seniors! The City of Norfolk has a good senior citizens program that aims to provide Norfolk seniors (age 55 and over) with plenty of educational, physical, social and cultural activities services and programs. For questions about the different programs offered to seniors visit the City of Norfolk seniors page. Another private, not-for-profit organization is the Senior Services of Southeast Virginia - " Its headquarters and satellite offices offer a variety of services - from home-delivered meals for qualifying seniors to counseling for Medicare, Medicaid and long-term care insurance."
Q: I am interested in obtaining more information on your dementia/Alzheimer's related services. I am evaluating places for my mother and would love to discuss if your location would be a good fit. - Mindy
Whenever I research a page or city for our site, Assisted Living Directory, I always start by asking myself the question "What would I want to know?" I've been to plenty of other assisted living sites, which often times stop short of offering the 'essential' information, such as direct contact information.
This is by design, so they can attempt (through usually questionable tactics) to get your personal information.
So, direct contact information for facilities - that's a big one. I also think that we have the responsibility to share with our users other excellent resources and sources of facility and senior care information.
For Norfolk, we encourage you to become familiar with their Local Area Agency on Aging. This would be the Senior Services of Southwestern Virginia - which has been in service for over 41 years. Services and programs offered include: Care Transitions; Home-Delivered Meals; Senior Companion Program; Personal Care; Homemaker Program; Medications Management Program - and much more. We've included a video at the bottom of this page that offers an excellent overview of this agency. Intro by D. Besnette
