Types of Assisted Living Available in West Virginia

West Virginia has incredible rates for all types of senior housing including assisted living centers. The state is smaller in size so it does lack the abundance of facilities like other states have to offer.

Despite the more limited selection, waiting lists are still not that common so finding a room is usually not extraordinarily difficult.

Types of units include basic rooms in a residential care institution or facility, as well as more apartment-style homes as part of a larger assisted living center or senior living community.

Paying for Assisted Living in West Virginia

While West Virginia does have the best prices for monthly assisted living costs, it also has a waiver for those still needing financial assistance.

The Medicaid Personal Care option can help finance the costs for personal care, yet unfortunately it does not cover the room at a senior living facility, as it only covers the directed care provided there.
