Assisted Living in Virginia Beach

When you need a helping hand.

Sometimes, all it takes is the right touch of help to brighten your day. With assisted living at Atlantic Shores, you’ll stay in control and continue living as independently as possible in a relaxed, residential setting. At Harbourway Assisted Living we welcome anyone seeking assisted living in Virginia Beach, VA.

How much assistance, and when? It’s really up to you. From bathing, grooming and dressing to bed-making, health checks and professional therapy, we can tailor a flexible care plan for senior assisted living that can change over time as lifestyles change.

We’re proud of our high staff-to-resident ratio which sets us apart from other assisted living facilities in the area. You’ll find a licensed practical nurse on staff at all times, and staff members trained in direct care for the elderly or are state-certified nursing assistants. Strong relationships between caregivers and family members help loved ones thrive, and we use the caremerge system to quickly send messages and updates, feedback and photos in real time.

Along with exceptional personalized care, assisted living includes housekeeping, home maintenance, and access to all of our community services and amenities. Steps away from your private assisted living apartment are a fitness center, library, arts and crafts room, games room and an outdoor courtyard with a community vegetable garden. You’ll enjoy award-winning dining, a calendar of social activities and events, and concierge service, 365 days a year.
