Why look for assisted living in Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania has a dense population given its smaller size, housing 12+ million people, and only trailing behind New York in the region for the largest state (based on population). New Jersey trails the two by several million. Pennsylvania has a little something for everyone, making it a very versatile state for retirees. Many senior citizens relocate here to cherish the beautiful scenery, spend time doing recreational things outdoors, or emerge in the rich history of the state in places like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The combination of big cities, moderate size communities, and small rural towns offers a home for every senior based on their individual needs. The weather is also moderate and not too extreme in any given season in the state.

Pennsylvania is also much more affordable for assisted living than most of the surrounding states including New York, Maryland, Connecticut and Massachusetts, yet it is within a day’s drive to NYC.

Types of Assisted Living Available in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has established a stable gathering of seniors primarily through its outstanding elderly care services. The healthcare is well regarded in PA, and the facilities are consistently among the best.

Senior living communities in the state are very well furnished, offering lots of community involvement, and the different types are diverse from small assisted living units to large complexes with apartment-style senior housing.

Paying for Assisted Living in Pennsylvania

Unfortunately, despite its affordable assisted living costs compared to other parts of the northeast, Pennsylvania does not help the elderly out more through public funding as Medicaid does not have any program set aside directly for assisted living.

The non-Medicaid program named PA Dom Care (Domiciliary Care Program) may be able to assist with monthly costs. A portion of your SSI (Supplemental Security Income) may also be directed toward room and board an assisted living facility in Pennsylvania.
