Familiar. Fulfilling. Fun.
Life at Charter Senior Living of Newport News helps seniors avoid a common problem with living at home – isolation. Here, residents have countless opportunities to connect with friends, family and staff.
We offer many options to stimulate and engage their minds and bodies in a safe and comforting environment.
Residents take baking and art classes. They garden and enjoy active aging classes and clubs. They play games and laugh with their neighbors and friends. They’re engaged and happy to be around other people! They go outside of our campus to get ice cream, walk in the park, dine at local Hampton Roads restaurants. Quite simply, they enjoy a life that’s familiar, fulfilling and fun.
Like Home – Only Better.
Our open floor plans of living, dining, kitchen, and activity rooms provide an inviting environment that residents love to call home. Most residents walk out of their apartments and into welcoming common spaces. There are no elevators or endless hallways. Instead, residents enjoy an easy-to-navigate one-story community … it feels like home – only better.
What Is Assisted Living?
There are many assisted living senior housing communities for family members and seniors to choose from; each one serves a different purpose depending on the needs and types of health care the resident requires and desires.
Unlike skilled nursing facilities and memory care communities, assisted living is focused on helping seniors with the activities of daily living and residential care. Signs that assisted living may be a good option for you or a loved one include:
- Needing help with medication management
- Noticeable weight loss or gain
- Loss of mobility or increase in falls
- Neglecting household maintenance and chores
- Being no longer able to perform daily tasks of grooming and preparing meals
- Increased isolation
Families will have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are living healthy, independent and active lives. They’ll have more time to focus on enjoying time together and enjoying all life has to offer.
For added peace of mind, our specialized Memory Care program, Flourish℠, is available on site.

Who pays for assisted living?
While your personal health insurance coverage continues and your pharmaceutical coverage continues, Medicare typically doesn’t pay for assisted living. Most assisted living residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
