    Facility offers residents an independent living space and privacy along with assisted living options. Residents typically add services as needed instead of beginning with a new facility. Chef prepared meals in a restaurant-styled dinning room. Staff members generally have poor follow-through...

    I give this community 2.5 stars. People who reside on independent living side with light cares and are able to advocate for themselves do well at this community. Our experience in memory care was alarming. They marketed to us a highly trained and dedicated staff for memory care. This was not the case...

    Very nice amenities but more expensive than the average independent community. Being a newer community, there are multiple floor plan options. Convenient to I-75 and a good option to those on the northside of the metroplex.

    My brother-in-law's Father lives here. He has complained about the food for the year + he's been living there. My sister came into town yesterday and he was weak. She took him to a restaurant and after a good meal he got his energy back. They are mostly serving sandwiches...

    The place is run by penny pinching investors in OR. It shows lack of care; is running downhill fast and food portions are rationed. Feels and acts like an institution, not your home.

Information About Senior Living Option in Norfolk

Located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk is a historic city that has successfully merged the old and the new into a rich and thriving culture. Home to the world's largest naval station, the city takes pride in its military and American heritage and provides miles of waterfront property. With its active naval base, Norfolk is home to many young families, but it also has a generous number of seniors, many of whom are retired veterans. Retirees especially enjoy Norfolk for its mild climate, which rarely freezes and is not as hot as other southern cities, as well as its abundant access to water, which provides opportunities for day cruises, fishing and swimming. No matter one's interests, Norfolk senior living provides an abundance of activities with all the benefits of a major city.

Norfolk Attractions

The Chesapeake Bay has been a hub of activity in Norfolk since colonial times, and today it offers a variety of attractions for active seniors. Daily cruises provide a chance to be on the water, exploring the harbor and witnessing beautiful views of the city. Seniors who prefer to stay on dry land, but still want to enjoy the Bay can take walking tours through the marshes and estuaries where they can experience the outdoors and discover the rich habitat of the Chesapeake. Residents of senior living in Norfolk enjoy a wealth of nearby cultural and historical destinations, including the Chrysler Museum of Art and MacArthur Memorial. Animal and plant lovers will enjoy spending time at the Virginia Zoo and Norfolk Botanical Gardens, while shoppers explore the stores and restaurants at the Waterside Festival Marketplace and MacArthur Center mall.

Norfolk Senior Activities

The city operates two local senior centers: the Southside Senior Center and the Ocean View Senior Center. Both are open to all adults age 55 and older, and provide regular activities and get-togethers meant to enhance the Norfolk senior living community. Programs at the centers are varied and include everything from health and physical activities to social and political debates. Other centers in the area, such as the Primeplus Norfolk Senior Center, offer day programs for active adults including Tai Chi, Bingo, ceramics and organized day trips.

Norfolk Medical Facilities

With two major city hospitals and several other medical facilities nearby, Norfolk senior living means never being far from quality health care. One area hospital, Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, is highly praised for its heart program and has been listed as one of America's Best Regional Hospitals 11 times by U.S. News and World Report. The hospital has also won the Hampton Roads Consumer Choice Award for the past 12 years. Additionally, the nearby Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center offers a range of services, including everything from orthopedics to a premier cancer center.

Norfolk Transportation

It’s easy to get around the city from a Norfolk senior living community with the many public transit options offered by Hampton Roads Transit (HRT). The public transportation systems in Norfolk are not only convenient, but they are inexpensive, especially for seniors who qualify for lower rates. In addition to comprehensive bus service, The Tide, Virginia’s first light rail system, frequents 11 stops outside of the downtown region. The city's electronic trolley system (NET) provides a 2.2-mile circuit of the downtown area, and the quick and inexpensive Paddlewheel Ferry carries passengers to the nearby historic town of Portsmouth.
