What to Consider About Assisted Living in Allentown

Located in Lehigh County, Allentown, Pennsylvania, is the state’s third most populous city. About 12 percent of the city’s population are seniors aged 60 and over, and there are 12 licensed assisted care facilities in Allentown to serve their needs. 44 more facilities are situated in nearby communities as well. All of these facilities, which are referred to as personal care homes, are licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Allentown

  • Even with its many amenities, Allentown is associated with a cost of living that is below the national average. Allentown’s cost of living index is 94; the national average, which is also the overall average for the state of Pennsylvania, is 100. 

  • Lehigh Valley Active Life, a popular Allentown senior center, features a wide variety of activities that include arts and crafts classes, health seminars, computer classes, fitness sessions and supervised trips.

  • Allentown is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lehigh Valley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Seniors should note that Pennsylvania does not tax social security checks, which leaves more money in their assisted living budgets. Additionally, the state does not tax withdrawals taken from certain types of retirement and 401k accounts.

  • Seniors who plan to rely on public transportation in Allentown have convenient access to the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority, which operates a fixed-route bus service throughout the city. Seniors age 65 and older ride free with their PA Senior Travel ID.

  • Seniors concerned about safety should consider that Allentown has an above-average crime rate. Allentown’s annual crime rate is 3,224 crimes per 100,000 people while the national average is 2,837 crimes per 100,000 people.
