Wheeling Senior Demographics

Wheeling has always had a strong connection to the B&O Railroad due to its position along the Ohio River and at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It was a major manufacturing center during the industrial boom in the 1800s. After the decline of manufacturing across the nation, its economy became more centered in tourism, energy, healthcare and education.

The city’s senior population represents over 20% of its near 29,000 residents, making its elderly population significantly higher than the state or national average. Such a high percentage of seniors creates the need for reliable nursing care, especially as many more residents approach retirement. Those who seek access to social programs, transportation assistance and other senior services can take advantage of programs offered through the Martins Ferry Senior Center and Bellaire Senior Center located at 14 North 5th Street and 3396 Belmont Street, respectively.

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
