Virginia Beach Senior Demographics

While Virginia Beach is more suburban in nature, its location has attracted tourists and residents alike over time. Its population of just under 451,000 makes it the largest city in the state, overtaking its more urban neighbor of Norfolk. It is home to the longest bridge-tunnel complex in the world and set the Guinness Book of Records record for having the longest pleasure beach on earth. Its economy is driven by tourism, agriculture and the military.

The senior population comprises 12.3% of the total and with many more residents nearing the age of retirement, there is a strong demand for senior services. The City of Virginia Beach offers a number of services through its Forever Young Senior Centers, including fitness classes, arts and crafts, daily lunches, special social events, shopping excursions and a transportation program.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
